If you are a teacher and deals with children everyday 'Every Child is Special ' will definitely move you! A film that touches my emotion. It involves issues on family, school and teacher-student relationship. The movie starred by the producer himself Aamir Khan and Darsheel Safary helps me to refresh my dedication for teaching. It relives the passion I have for young learners specially those who have special needs.I can relate to the movie because I am currently a substitute teacher in a private school that caters the different intelligences of students although my major concentration is not special education. I'm a volunteer and been exposed to children with disabilities since 2008 and the movie simply brought me to tears.
The story is about a third-grade pupil who keeps failing his subjects and acts slightly different from children at his age. All the people around Ishan are disappointed in his school performance including his own parents.They then decided to transfer him to a boarding school where he became completely inactive in school activities. Last November 8, the local news in my city reported that a 15-year old named Dexter with special needs is beaten by a prison guard and a teacher
I highly recommend this movie to parents for them to have better understanding on their children. Through watching this movie they will be able to get more involved in the development of their children as well as to give more importance on their studies.'Every Child is Special' is suited to every teacher. Each learner has his own growth and maturity and the Indian movie will remind us to know and understand our student. Not all teachers could see the problems a student is facing. The movie highlights a mentor's real purpose- not just to impart knowledge but to nurture the gift a child has by looking at him as a person since every child is indeed special in the eyes of God and man.
