Special Education 101 (Infographic)

Special Education 101 (Infographic) | Special Education | Scoop.it

An overview of Special Education that helps to define the term special education, looks at types of special needs, the percentage of students who receive special education services, and much more. In this infographic special education is defined as "specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability."

Today one of the buzzwords in education is personalized learning. As our classrooms move towards this goal it is important to recognize how technology may impact both our special education and our regular education students.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, June 6, 2013 12:12 AM

I scooped this info graph to demonstrate to teachers to prominences of the various types impairments in the 21st century. I beleive this is an important issue as teachers need to know as classrooms today are having students with some type of disability or impairemnt. Teachers need accomodate and differentiate the types of ICT skills and devices used within the classroom. The aim of technolgies within the classroom is to allow students to engage confidently with technologies and make informed, ethical and sustainable decisions about technologies for preferred futures including personal health andwellbeing, recreation, everyday life, the world of work and enterprise, and the environment (ACARA, 2013).

UpTempo Group's curator insight, December 18, 2014 12:43 PM

This is a very important article regarding the increased need for eye care for those with learning disabilities.  The article states that 6 out of ten people with learning disabilities have vision problems.  Myopia, Hyperopia, and astigmatism can be diagnosed and treated following an eye exam.  The problem is that many people with learning disabilities do not know that they have a sight problem, or they have difficulty communicating this problem to others.


This article reviews the focus of the National Health System in Britain on supporting the vision care of those patients with learning disabilities.  These patients typically require more time during an eye exam to allow for the Optometrist to fully explain the process throughout the exam.


Vision Care is exceptional in the U.S. with many treatments available for the most common vision disorders.  For those with learning disabilities, it is very important for them to get an annual eye exam as they may not be able to identify the vision disorders or symptoms that they are experiencing.
