Shadow teachers are being hired in mainstream schools across the globe
Due to the growing awareness in schools as well as among parents across the globe, Special Needs children are getting enrolled in regular schools and are attending classes alongside regular students. This has been possible mainly due to the presence of “shadow teachers” who are qualified and trained to support children with SPECIAL EDUCATION needs (SEN) and are recruited by mainstream schools on a regular basis to assist children with Special Needs. Their constant presence in classrooms helps these children to focus on lessons to learning how to socialise with their peers. The regular and shadow teachers complement each other and are the backbones of the smooth and effective functioning of the inclusive classrooms today.
