Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni has urged the teachers to give special attention to the children with special needs to flourish their talents to build a prosperous country.
“If the physically challenged children were given special attention, they will be able to flourish their latent talents,” she said while addressing the inaugural session of a daylong divisional seminar here today as the chief guest.
Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) under the Ministry of Education organized the seminar titled “National Academy for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disability (NAAD)” at Shaheed AHM Kamaruzzaman Zila Parishad Auditorium in the city.
More than 400 teachers and students from various schools of children with special needs took part in the seminar.
The minister said each of the differently able children has special talent and they need some extra care, love, affection and nursing so that they can flourish their talents.
She urged the teachers to remain beside them with the mentality of making them worthy citizens. All of their schools should have to be turned into the place of attraction and amusement, she said.
The present government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has been working relentlessly for ensuring the rights of the physically challenged children, she added.
She simultaneously urged all concerned to supplement the government endeavour through discharging their own duties with utmost sincerity and honesty.
Senior Secretary of the Secondary and Higher Education Division Sohrab Hossain and President of Rajshahi Ananda School Governing Body Shaheen Akter Rainy addressed the function as special guests with DSHE Director General (DG) Dr Syed Golam Faruque in the chair.
NAAD Project Director Dr Didarul Alam welcomed the participants while Dr Firoj Shah, an expert and Master Trainer on autism and neurodevelopmental disability, gave an overview of the issue in his keynote presentation.
