One Size Does Not Fit All: A Case of a Student Who Encountered a Problem in an Exam
Drawing on a narrative story of a gifted student, who studies at the school for gifted children, and who suffers from stuttering that made him difficult to articulate his words and deliver his ideas properly, this case study draws the attention to the problem of children with special educational needs, who are neglected at schools and have to cope with the study tasks that are designed for normal and gifted children. The case begins with describing the case genre and the context of the school setting, and then explores the events and challenges faced by a student, who encounters a problem in an exam. This narrative research asks readers to consider how teachers and school leaders must accommodate learners with special needs.
