Following the release of a data report noting higher rates of discipline aimed at students with disabilities, the guidelines aim to address the disparities.
Persons with disabilities are in no way looking for favours, far from it, but they are wanting to live their lives as best as they can. However, to do so they may need help and assistance, which can be in many ways. They may need some physical assistance, but also assistance in many other ways depending to the nature of their disabilities and the extent. It could be in a greater need of understanding, or more time to complete tasks required, but in many instances not for someone to complete the tasks for them, but to enable them to complete the tasks themselves in anyway they can.
Pressures should not be applied to the person with disabilities to complete tasks more quickly than they wish to or are able to do. This also includes when there are misunderstandings by any person as to not work at the pace of the person with disabilities could upset them, cause unnecessary frustrations, which could lead to behaviours which may challenge. If this occurs it will not be the fault of the person with disabilities but due to the pressures put upon them, but, as is seen many times the blame is placed on the person with disabilities leading to further measures be placed on the person with disabilities when, if, more consideration and less blame was evident the challenges would not have occurred.
But as is the case, very frequently, expulsions, criminality and even more pressures are being given, when, if, there was more understanding, considerations, etc, the problems would be minimised or not even occurred.
