Amanda Eve Avila's curator insight, February 29, 2016 3:00 AM

This article had my interest throughout the whole reading. It was well written and explained how to work effectively with students who have special needs during STEM classes. I have a passion for working with special needs and this article was extremely helpful. A lot of the tips that the author gave the readers were things I do when I work with special needs. It made me happy to know that there are caring people trying to find efficient ways to teach STEM to special needs students. I feel like all classes in school should consider students with special needs and think of ways to help them get the full learning experience. I hope that more and more teachers become aware that students with special needs need more help than other students and they deserve equal education opportunities. This article was a great way to help others be aware and learn beneficial methods to work with students that have special needs.
