Dr. Kusum Tantry D’Sa speaking in the inclusiveness of Education system today shared, “The syllabus that is given to teachers to executive doesn’t cater to the need of healthy students. In case of specially-abled, they are sidelined in the system,” she worried.

“The more delay in acceptance, the more delay in child’s opportunity to learn. The more educated parents are more difficult to convince about any spectrum of special challenges within the kids,” expressed Dr. Kusum Tantry D’Sa on her personal experience.

She also discussed on the early signs of diagnosing the challenges within the child. She pointed, ‘Attitude of people, delay in policy for disabled due to it’s presence in concurrent list, disability being the ignored field of health by District Administrations and Judiciary, acts as a loophole in bringing the inclusiveness.
