It is estimated that 0.3% of children have severe developmental impairments. Mental handicap, epilepsy, deafness, visual and hearing defects, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and other chromosomal and genetic disorders are among the categories [1]. The estimate may be at least 1% if you take into account children with mild visual and hearing deficits, fine- and gross-motor aberrations, social, linguistic, and learning issues which are sufficient to cause concern in their first year of school.
