Finding the Upside in Special EducationJul 26, 2019
If I asked you to tell me 3 things you don't like in Special Education, I bet you could tell me immediately what's been on your mind. Especially with back to school season right around the corner (ok, it's actually here for some). You're probably even losing sleep over school schedules, support services, safety, IEP goals and so much more.
Whether you're a parent, teacher, therapist or admin, the negative in special education is super easy to find.
So let's flip things, for just a minute. Can you tell me ONE thing you love about Special Education. Yep. Just one. C'mon, you can do it. I'm serious, you can send me an email right here and I'm going to read it and smile and know that you are the exception to the rule.
You are the person who knows the solution for special education being all that we need it to be for kids isn't hiding inside of a negative Facebook group. You know that the strategies we need to create aren't built over a venting session on a group chat. And you definitely know that burning bridges and throwing people under the bus isn't the way to get to where you really need to be for the child.
