Special Needs Resources Special Needs Resources

People with disabilities often face insensitivity that can make it difficult for them to interact with others. In some cases, the insensitivity arises when others don’t understand the nature of the disability, or do not recognize it. Particularly in school environments, people with disabilities are often ostracized, teased or bullied.

1.  Dear Teacher: Heartfelt Advice for Teachers from Students

Kids with a formal diagnosis, such as autism, Asperger's, ADHD, learning disabilities, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Central Auditory Processing Disorder -- along those who just need to move while learning--often find it challenging to shine in a traditional classroom. The kids who collaborated to write and star in this "Dear Teacher" video represent such students. So, they wanted to share with educators how their brain works and offer simple ways teachers can help.
