Abstract—The present research examines the way in which Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) affected students with Special Educational Needs and/or Disability (SEND) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Qualitative descriptive analysis by hand and AI-based/linguistic analysis was performed on the interviews of 12 parents of students with SEND. The results revealed a). how students responded to those special learning conditions, b). how the special educational needs or disabilities of those children affected their attendance on the online courses, and c). how their parents judged the educational dimension of ERT, along with any changes noticed in the psychological and emotional state of their children. Parents highlighted the overall negative impact of ERT on children with SEND.

Index Terms—COVID-19, special educational needs and/or disability (SEND), emergency remote teaching (ERT), inclusive education, linguistic analysis, artificial intelligence
