Inclusive education is based on the simple idea that every child is valued equally and deserves the same opportunities and experiences. Inclusive education is a child's right, not a privilege. The special needs students many a times need extra attention. Hence the teacher's role becomes very challenging. Each student has his/her own preferred learning style. 'Learning styles' means every student learns differently. Though demanding it is important that the teacher tries to cater to every student's learning style. Graphic Organizers can be one of the solutions in this context. According to the ‘Schema Theory' and the‘Dual Coding Theory'on using graphic organizers, theteaching-learning process can be made interesting and organized. It will enable us to deal with different kind of learners at thesame time since graphic organizers are presented via different presentation strategies.Considering all these points, the authors have come up with a model of teaching GOALS (Graphic Organizers and Learning Styles) to cater to the students having different learning styles with the specific reference to the VAK Model.An appropriate environment for learning can thus be designed. As the famous quote of Albert Einstein states ‘I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.'
