Special Education aims at developing skills and abilities of the special children to aid them to lead an active daily life with fewer hurdles.

Researches have also proved that kids who learn cursive over simple writing score better in reading and spelling tests. Perhaps because of the writing pattern of the cursive the writers are forced to conceive words as whole instead of parts. Cursive plays an important role in a Montessori environment and needs to be continued despite the world being technologically advanced.
