Education is a powerful instrument of social change, and often initiates upward movement in the social structure. The goals of education are the same for all children provided that these goals are balanced and brought in harmony with the individual needs of each child. In order to truly teach these children, it is important to get a good grasp of what they are truly capable of achieving. Every child is different so it is needed to take the time to really study all of the information that is available so that the best direction to take the child's education can be given. Special education includes learning disabilities (such as dyslexia), communication disorders, emotional and behavioral disorders (such as ADHD), physical disabilities (such as osteogenesis imperfecta, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, and Friedreich's ataxia), and developmental disabilities (such as autistic spectrum disorders including autism and Asperger syndrome and intellectual disability) and many other disabilities. Students with these kinds of disabilities are likely to benefit from additional educational services such as different approaches to teaching, the use of technology, a specifically adapted teaching area, or a resource room.
