Teaching children with special needs is a delicate balance between providing educational support for each child's individual differences while also providing the support necessary for each child to participate fully in her or her school and community. The work can be rewarding and frustrating, often all at the same time.
Information to assist teachers in negotiating that delicate balance is included here. If you have ideas for additional information or have identified web sites that have been beneficial to you, please share your information with FirstNetworkOnline so we can share it with your peers.
