Top Monuments in India with Disabled-Friendly Facilities
Happily, more travel destinations are opening their doors to and welcoming persons with special needs or Disabled person. Here are some of the most well-known tourist sites in India.
Wheelchair accessibility is still not as commonplace as it could be, even in modern times. The truth is that a lot of locations in India’s infrastructure and public transportation systems are not made to accommodate persons with disabilities, which poses a number of difficulties for them and can make travelling much more challenging. Thankfully, more tourist destinations are becoming accessible and supportive of those with special needs as a result of increased awareness.
Today, many well-known tourist spots in India offer accommodations, infrastructure, and transit options that make moving about with a wheelchair or limited mobility simpler.

National PwD Icons Conference for Accessible Elections
Today at Rang Bhavan Auditorium in Akashvani, New Delhi, Election Commission of India’s first-ever National Conference of PwD Icons for Accessible Elections was presided over by Chief Election Commissioner Shri Rajiv Kumar and Election Commissioner Shri Anup Chandra Pandey.
Disability is not at all inability, CEC Shri Kumar stated, praising the artists’ unwavering energy at the ceremony. Perhaps our own unwillingness to recognise the inherent talent of those with special needs constitutes the true impairment.
The difficulty lies not in the disability itself, but rather in adopting the proper attitude toward it and in the system’s capacity to be sensitive to the needs of everybody. The CEC stated that ECI will take into consideration the comments made to make our elections more inclusive while underlining the many measures taken by ECI to make elections Accessible & Inclusive. He continued by saying that ECI is working with the Department of Persons with Disabilities to identify additional voters who have special needs.

Virtual reality in the classroom for special education
Consider the amazing things virtual reality (VR) can accomplish in special education classes, where students encounter considerable difficulties in a variety of areas of everyday life, such as education, social interaction, and personal relationships.
While the world has been disrupted by technology in the twenty-first century, virtual reality (VR) learning is making waves in classrooms all over the world. With VR, kids may explore the Eiffel Tower from the comfort of their homes and schools, observe the molecular makeup of the human body, and go on virtual field trips to space.

Pay special educators on line with regular school teachers, according to Madurai.
On Tuesday, the Madras high court requested the state government’s response to a petition asking for regular time scale compensation for special educators employed in recognised and licenced special schools managed by NGOs, on par with instructors employed in regular schools.
According to the petitioner, special educators, physiotherapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and caregivers work together to create specialised curricula for kids with exceptional educational needs. In our state, children with special needs benefit much from the education, training, and rehabilitation provided by the special schools managed by NGOs, but these institutions are very difficult to manage.

How to date that special someone: Dating advice discover love despite obstacles
It is true that challenges to inclusivity exist for persons with disabilities everywhere, not just in India. Around 650 million people on the planet, or 10% of the total population, live with a disability and fight ableism every day.
The issue is that mainstream culture just mimics its attitudes toward people with disabilities rather than being ready to accept them for who they are. In the workplace, in the classroom, or even in romantic relationships, they struggle to be around people with disabilities. People with disabilities have to deal with this on a daily basis; it’s not just a local issue.
