Welcome New Bloggers!
I want to introduce three new special education/disability blogs.
Exceptional Paradise is a new blog by a teacher of learners with significant disabilities/AT specialist in Virginia. She already has an excellent post up about avoiding an Edmark Coma from teaching and re-teaching (and re-teaching) those Edmark words (I haven't taught Edmark in years and I still know that yellow is in in the first few lessons, eight?) I expect more great posts soon!
Empowering People/Changing Lives is by a young woman named Erin who has mild cerebral palsy and is just starting on her journey to college, but is already a disability activist. I look forward to reading more about her adventures.
Building a Program that Works by Monica Braat is a new blog that will focus on sharing materials and activity ideas for the severe special needs classroom, specifically she will share extension activities for News-2-You.
