Jitendar Singh Bika, Bibek Bhuyan, Sonu.

Abstract
Education is a powerful instrument of social change, and often initiates upward movement in the social structure. Thereby, helping to bridge the gap between the different sections of society. As for any other group, education is critical to expanding the life prospects of people with disabilities. In addition, the socialization of children with disabilities through education assumes an unusually important role in societies such as India where social exclusion of person with disability is significant. Despite its importance, educational outcomes for children and adults with disabilities remain very poor. Illiteracy rates both for all person with disability and for school-age disabled children (5-18 age group) remain much higher than the general population, and school attendance among school age children with disabilities massively lags that of non-disabled children. In view of the marginalization and exclusion of disabled from the mainstream, the present study aims to show the levels of literacy and education for different type of differently abled population and look at reasons of their non- enrollment. For showing spatial pattern of level of literacy, education and reasons of non enrollment (age group 5-18) cross tabulation has been used.

Key words: Differently abled, social exclusion, Non enrollment, Main streaming
