    I want to step down from the two committees I'm on at my school. I've feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. I'm looking for a reference resource to help explain to my principal why I want to take a break from committees. I teacher mod/severe and my caseload is 14 students. I'd really appreciate some help! Thank you!

    I am taking a class on Special Education Law and need to ask a few questions for an assignment. Here are a few of the questions that I need to ask:

    1. How has the legal system evolved, as it applies to special education over the past 20 years, and how has that affected the legal framework for special education today?

    2. How does t...See More

    How do you choose a question for research when our whole job is already about differentiated instruction?!

    You find a kid that puzzles you and go from there. That's what I did.
    Hi there, I hope this is an okay place to post this question. This is my first time on the chat boards. Anyway, I am a special educator looking for a new job in the Fall because my current principal isn't hiring me back next year. It's a long story, and I am coming to terms with it. But he is also not granting me professional status. So my question...See More

I was a camp counselor for 7 years as a teenager, and completed only some of the coursework required for certification. With those skills I've landed several jobs over the years at art museums, art camps, and pr...See More

    casey I agree. A look at the IEP might give you a better picture of the child. The parent's picture is possibly very different from the educational reality. The wonderful thing is he loves coming to you. You are meeting him where he is interest and ability wise. I wish you luck convincing the parents of that. You are on the right track.
    AM Just so you know I am a parent.

    What jumped out at me was assuming the parents think he is an idiot savant (we know what it means) and you should know that being developmentally delayed doesn't equate to mentally handicapped. When you finally asked them what was wrong they were honest with you. Perhaps they read some place that it will he...See More
    I'm very interested in being a special needs teacher/helper my name is Anastasia what degree or schooling would I have to get
    SpedTeacher74 Any education program at the undergraduate or graduate level...depending on where you are with your education...that focuses on special education. In some states this is a degree program and in other it is a certificate program added to your degree.
    Hi I am getting ready to take the OSAT for mild moderate but was looking for the best study guides. There is so much information out there it's overwhelming...especially since it was just re-structured. I am looking for the study guides that best helped. Thanks

    Betty Ann Welcome.

    Tell us a little about yourself and what you teach. That helps people get to know you.

    As for myself, I am not a special ed teacher. My students are pregnant and parenting teens. There is currently one student with an IEP. I read posts here because I'm interested in learning more.
