Teaching Special Needs Students

Are you teaching special needs students?

Whether you have a special education class, or just a few students with special needs, then chances are you could use some help too, right? :-)

There's been an explosive growth in the number of children with special needs, especially with autism, Aspergers syndrome or ADD / ADHD.

Often, that means that we're seeing students with complex medical needs or physical disabilities. They often need assistive technology to help them get through the day. Or perhaps they need the right tools to assist in dyslexia, blind or deaf education.

And of course, there's been explosive growth in the number of students with learning disabilities and behavior issues.

We're seeing lots of autism in the classroom, alongside kids with Aspergers Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, Williams Syndrome or any variation of PDD - pervasive development disorder.

But... school funding hasn't kept up, has it?

Not to mention teacher training.

Even if you've decided on a career in teaching special education, you may find that your time and resources are stretched to the limit as you try to accommodate all of your students' needs.

If you're teaching special needs students - this site is for you.

Special Education Resources

Continued below....

As a parent of two children with special needs, I've been lucky enough to see the great benefits my kids get from well trained teachers that are given the right special education resources they need.

I've also seen teachers struggle to figure out autism symptoms in the classroom, deal with myriad learning disabilities, deal with classroom behavior problems, and try to somehow create a cohesive inclusive classroom for everyone.

Add the kids who don't speak English as their first language, and you've also got to consider bilingual instruction as well.

No wonder teachers are stressed as never before!

On this site, I'm putting together tips, tools and special ed resources to help. I've seen what works and what doesn't, and I've put some work into gathering information on the adaptive equipment, like switches and augmentative communication devices that can really help.

Whether you're a teacher, home-schooler or other education professional, you'll find useful information, and links to the tools you need to do the job.

You'll also find lots of opportunity to share your knowledge too.

So, nose around the site and make yourself at home.

We'll figure it all out together!
