Reflections on Observation Task 2: Identifying Children with Special


Educational Needs (SEN)

Read the questions below and write your answers


1. What is the school policy for inclusion for SEN students in the
school?
The school policy of inclusion is private and it is among the school and
special cases parents.
2. What accommodations were made for the identified SEN
students in the classroom?

According to my math MST: special needs students will be in the same


class as other normal children but with the shadow teacher who facilities,
monitor and assists their work. We gave them extra worksheets also
more concentration.
3. Was there any assistive technology, other equipment or
materials used with the identified SEN students? If yes, please
describe the equipment that was used and what it was used
for.
No
4. What teaching strategies did your MST use with the identified
SEN students?
According to my math MST: we use the cooperative and learning
through play strategies.
5. Where there any other school staff that worked with the
identified SEN students? If yes, please explain their role and
what they did with the identified SEN student.
Only assistants that provide the parents.

6. Do you think that SEN students should be included in the


classroom or taught in a class specifically for SEN students?
Why / Why not?
In my opinion, inclusion is an essential thing for the special need
students. Because if they raised, grow and used to the isolated or
special environment, they will never know what the real world is.
Above of that, it will turn to the biggest fear and nightmare to them, to
face the real world, communicate with others. Inclusion gives the brave
to interact, feel and live a normal life like others. Although it may occur
some issues that may let them feel different but it teaches them to be
brave and fight. Face reality is better than nightmares chasing me.
