Those teachers who have to work at school should feel satisfaction in helping exceptional children. The slightest sign of trouble in a child should be observed by the teacher – each step and emotion must be under control at school. If something unusual is found out or seems acute, it should be reported to the school medical staff for immediate attention. The teacher has no right to diagnose or prescribe treatment for the exceptional children under no circumstances. A kid who cries easily or always tired, who is angry or irritable sometimes tries to tell of his physical needs and troubles. The teacher helps him by listening to very attentively and trying to calm down the child. No rising tones or negative looks are permitted, of course. The teacher’s behavior must be also under control without any doubt.
School teachers are just reporting their observations concerning to one or other child and this will be their part to stop serious problems. Exceptional children are usually very sensitive and vulnerable – hence, teachers should keep them in good mood. They have to eliminate emotional problems very often for the whole day. Any teacher should just know what services and facilities are available at school to be used by children and try to help them take a chance in using them. This is very important to maintain good physical health and spirit of handicapped children. In any case, those teachers who are working with the exceptional children should also know where they can obtain assistance in planning activities and adjusting the curriculum to help the exceptional children enrolled in their class. A teacher, for example, should not be puzzled by inability of a child to read or to say something in his own words. It is normal if there are such kids in the classroom. A smart teacher keeps all these problems under control and never scares of catching him/her off guard.
