Recently, I was sent links to varied types of resources.
This lead me to do some more research. Here is what I found:
An opportunity for parents, family members, and professionals who advocate for children to ask questions about special education and school discipline.
The Federation for Children with Special Needs provides information, support, and assistance to parents of children with disabilities, their professional partners, and their communities. We are committed to listening to and learning from families, and encouraging full participation in community life by all people, especially those with disabilities.
Services In School For Children With Special Needs: What Parents Need To Know
Isn't every kid special? We think so, but what do we mean when we say "kids with special needs"? This means any kid who might need extra help because of a medical, emotional, or learning problem. These kids have special needs because they might need medicine, therapy, or extra help in school — stuff other kids don't typically need or only need once in a while.
Many children are born with special needs. It is important to address the issue as soon as possible. Emerging research indicates that a child with a disability is more likely to be physically or verbally bullied than his typically developing peers.
Please send other resources to share.
