Teaching Special Needs Children to read in the homeschool has big challenges. Here, one homeschool mom tells how using more than one curriculum is helping.
Shao Lin Lauricella's insight:

I liked this article because it shows how we as teachers and parents can teach students that have special needs that are homeschooled. I know teaching special education students take a great deal and with reading, it makes it more difficult, but with this, it makes it easier to teach them.

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | Let's Teach Those Who are Different! | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

How to Teach Special Needs Students in an Inclusive Classroom | eHow

How to Teach Special Needs Students in an Inclusive Classroom | eHow | Let's Teach Those Who are Different! | Scoop.it
An inclusive classroom allows children with special needs to learn with typically developing peers of their own age in the same classroom. This model is becoming more common as schools try to mainstream their classrooms.
Shao Lin Lauricella's insight:

I think this is SUPER helpful because it teaches people how to teach students with special needs in an inclusive classroom. Today more and more special education students are being put into regular classrooms and learning at the same pace as "normal" students. All teachers should know how to teach a range of students and not just the ones that are easy to deal with.

Shao Lin Lauricella's insight:

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.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 4, 2013 9:08 PM

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.
