This infographic looks at how technology shaped education for special needs students (in the U.S.). There are many sections in the infographic including:

* A Brief History of Children with Special Education Needs

* The Percentage of Students by Disability (ages 6 - 17)

* Then, Now and the Future

* Devices to Help the Hearing Impaired

* Devices to Help the Visually Impaired

* iPad Apps

* Psychological Effects of the new Technologies

* References

As educators we need to understand the history of Special Education and the needs of our students. This post presents valuable information for teachers across all grade levels and curriculum.

I find this super helpful. There are many more special needs children today than there were back in the day. Also today there is more use in the technology world and we need to accommodate to both. This is helpful because it teaches teachers who has a special needs students the different technology tools that will help those students specifically.
