Special Education 101 (Infographic)

Special Education 101 (Infographic) | Learning Enhancement | 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.

Nicholas Bray's insight:

This page overviews the terms of special education, the needs of students, the number of students who do need help and provide ideas to help aid the inclusion of special needs children and students. We as a class can all aid in the inclusive education process.

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).

Every classroom has 2 or 3 children with learning disability
Times of India
A new study from the University of Melbourne says that every classroom is likely to have two or three children with learning disability.
Nicholas Bray's insight:

More and more students are coming into mainstream classes with disabilities or difficulties with learning. How can we as a group provide these students with an inclusive education?


What are the main disabilities that are going to be seen in these classes and what can we do to aid their inclusion?
