Recently, someone from TExESTest.org contacted me about a resource they put together to help special ed teachers. It is also for people who are thinking of becoming special ed teachers. Here is some info on it, followed by a link to the resource. I also added it to the Whispers of Hope Special Needs Resources page under Resources for Professionals.
About the resource:
To help teachers in their goal of crafting inclusive classrooms that take into account all types of students, we’ve created a guide full of helpful advice and methods all about inclusivity. As special education students do need some accommodations, they can may feel as if they are not fully a part of their classroom, which is something all teachers strive to change. TExESTest.org created a guide to Inclusive Teaching Techniques for Special Education Teachers to provide comprehensive information to future and current educators on the answers they need the most, such as:
- A discussion of learning disabilities
- The types of classroom accommodations
- Techniques for inclusive teaching, such as station teaching, parallel teaching, and universal design
- Ways to design a functional and inclusive classroom space
