Author(s) : Sahib Khan & Farzana Jabeen
The motive of this qualitative study was to compare educational provisions and practices being adopted for persons having special needs in Pakistan, USA, England and France. While comparing various aspects of special educational practices, the focus of this study was to find a comprehensive picture for sake to make suggestions to improve existing setup of special Education in Pakistan. In this regard a systematic documental and content analysis was done to compare different aspects. After doing dense content analysis and discussion made by researcher; it was observed that approaches of Pakistan regarding educational provisions for Special Education needs (SEN) are insufficient and are in developmental stages; still plenty of improvements are required to meet international standards. Pakistan needs to improve legislation, infrastructure and mainstream approach for better facilitations. Timely adoption of emerging trends (e.g. inclusion) all over the world appears to be the most efficient way to fulfill needs of the persons with special needs.
