Special needs students can be empowered through the creation of a Resource Room. Schools committed towards providing a comprehensive education system for all students should consider creating a place where students with special needs feel a sense of security and belonging.

What is a Resource Room?

A Resource Room is a separate classroom designed so that tailor-made special education programs can be delivered to students with a learning disability on a small group or individual level. These programs are delivered in a number of ways including in-person instruction, homework support, and group meetings.

Why should a schools incorporate Resource Rooms?

Any school should include a Resource Room in the campus for the following reasons-

  • The school is committed to providing a comprehensive education for all students, including those with special needs.
  • The school recognizes that students with special needs may require additional support and resources in order to succeed academically and emotionally.
  • The school is providing a safe and supportive environment for students with special needs, where they can receive individualized instruction and support.
  • The school is committed to working with parents and caregivers to ensure that their child’s needs are being met and that they have access to the resources they need to succeed.
  • The school is continuously working to improve the academic performance of all students, including those with special needs, and is dedicated to providing the best possible education for all students.

Parents of students requiring special education need constant reassurance that their child will not fall back or not be able to keep up with their peers. Incorporating Resource Room shows them that the school is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that students with special needs get 100% attention and also a social space where they can be free to express themselves.
