The education system and teachers in particular have to respond to the needs of all children. This includes the children with special needs in education. The main focus of this thesis is to analyse the educational, social and emotional implications of libelling children with disabilities. Specialised teaching methods, legislation, toleration of disabilities just to mention but a few. However, there are some drawbacks of labelling like labelling lower self-esteem for children and lower expectations from both parents and teachers. Key terms to be defined as the essay unfolds (labelling and children disabilities). Hardman et al (1999) defines labelling as a process by which a society came up with descriptions to identify people who vary significantly the norm for example labels used by professionals as disorders, disability and handcapped among others. Children with disabilities are those learners who are physically or mentally unable to act in a way that is considered for normal for most people (Frohrem 2014). Children with disabilities can be defined as it is entitled to a free appropriate public education that emphasis special education and related services designed to meet the children’s unique needs. To commence with labelling has led to the development of specialised teaching methods assessment approaches and behavioural interventions that are useful for teachers of all students. By labelling, educators are able to research the disabilities and identify or develop specialised methods to teach students with the varied disabilities. This is supported by Gillman et al (2000) who argue that assigning labels to children with disabilities helps the provision of appropriate learning opportunities, extra support and increased awareness and understanding of certain disabilities. Therefore, labelling can affect learners with disabilities

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
