Abstract

Education is the right of every child because it equips them to meet the challenges of life. The children with disabilities (CWD) need this all the more, to supplement their differential talents so that they can prepare themselves for a happy, productive and useful life. In the present study, an attempt has been made to examine policies and legislations for educating the disabled children, challenges providing education to CWD in the context of Assam, India. A few recommendations were also made as part of the study. It is hoped that the juxtaposition of existing laws, the academia, media and the public domain along with the discussion in this paper will successfully shed more light on the interactions between disability, law and gender on access to education.
