Author(s): Aswathy U
Technology plays a vital role in human life. It is estimated that approximately one in every ten children in the world has a disability in low-income countries like India. Besides poverty and prejudice, lack of access to assistive technology, as well as inaccessible transport and school environments are major barriers, which restrict children with disabilities to access education and to participate in the community. Assistive technology has become first step for the children with disability which helps to educate them to become a good member in the society. Disabled sports, also adaptive sports or Para sports are played by the people with different abilities. They are of four categories: physical, deaf and intellectual. The objective of the study is to analyse the benefits of facilities provided for the differently abled population from the Indian perspective. Children with disabilities are among the most stigmatized and excluded groups of children around the world.
