8 Favorite Special Education Websites for Teachers and Parents
Today is National Teacher Day, and you may be sending kids to school with gifts for their favorite teachers. But another way to better appreciate teachers and what they do is to read some of the resources they use to help them do their jobs better. The following websites about educating students with special needs are of interest to both teachers and parents. They give information about special education law and interventions; classroom tips and strategies for teaching students in special education; and adapting and modifying material for learners in special education.
These are all current sites with up-to-date teaching methods. Check them out to get a better appreciation of what special education teachers deal with and do, and maybe pick up some ideas that you can use too.

Find it at: scaffoldedmath.blogspot.comFrom the "About" page: "After teaching mainstream math and biology for 8 years, I got a job teaching special education algebra 2 and consumer math in a high school outside Boston. Soon after came a certification to teach students with moderate disabilities and a realization that teaching math to kids who are afraid of math is what I live to do. Every activity I make, every lesson I plan first asks, 'Will this work for tough kids?'"

Find it at: www.thetherapeuticteacher.com/blogFrom the "About" page: "The Therapeutic Teacher was created to provide early childhood teachers with resources and interventions that are evidence-based, structured, and engaging. As a former teacher, I understand the challenges teachers face and do my best to create resources that will help teachers overcome those barriers. I implement what I have learned as a student in school psychology into my resources so teachers can utilize the most up-to-date, proven to work academic and behavioral interventions. The Therapeutic Teacher is a place for teachers to collaborate with other teachers and school psychologists and learn how to make the best decisions for children in the classroom."
