The impact of education systems on learners with and without disabilities vary between religions, ethnicities and race groups. Many factors such as peer-pressure, outcomes-based education, teaching techniques and attributes (teacher, parent and learner characteristics) have an influence on childhood development currently. At present, there are many views concerning the method that one should use to encourage learners so that they attain the complete benefit of what is taught, however, children with disorders (either from birth or with age) are viewed, sometimes, as an additional factor that?s required to be accounted for in the design of teaching curricula. Furthermore, with individuals being left- and right-brained, designing teaching curricula to suit individual learner needs is very complicated (in all situations ? whether in rural or urban schools). This article, therefore, looks at different learner and teacher situations in classrooms, in attempts that possibly can be made by parents and teachers, to enable children to achieve their goal in the face of socio-economic pressures.
