Well, actually quite a bit, none of which is good. Welcome to this episode of Special Education Tips For Parents.

    Teaching Mainstreamed Students with Hearing Loss, Zina Jawadi

    Hi, my name is Zina Jawadi. I am a high-school junior at The Harker School in San Jose, California. I have hearing loss, and I have been a mainstreamed student my entire life; in other words, I have been attending regular schools with hearing students. Almost always, I have been the only student with hearing loss in the classroom. In this video, I would like to share with you the best practices for mainstreaming students with hearing loss. In preparing and scripting this video, I interviewed three of the nation’s best experts on the subject: Dr. Diane Brackett of the New England Center for Hearing Rehabilitation, Ms. Mary Jane Johnson…

    The Abandoned Teacher | Special Education Videos For Parents

    – It’s true that as parents of children with special needs we often feel like nothing is going right regarding their academic journey. This lack of proper learning seems to spill into all aspects of a child’s life, from the seemingly endless meltdowns, continually waking up throughout the night, to the refusal to listen to even the smallest instructions. It gets completely overwhelming quickly. Naturally, we try to blame our child’s teacher for this downward spiral or self-esteem destruction, because, well, after all, teachers are the ones we interact with and in turn, they interact daily with our child. Now, of course, it’s true that some teachers just aren’t the…

    Four Simple Reward Systems For Kids | Special Education Decoded

    – Throughout history people push harder, are more engaged, and far more likely to complete a task if some sort of incentive is dangling before them at the finish line. We go to work every day due to the promise of money when our job is complete. For those who forge forward with their own business, there have to be reasons to keep going through all the hardships, whether that incentive is more time with family, helping others, financial freedom or something else. Without it, it would be very easy to simply throw in a towel. So, why do so many parents fail to implement the exact same strategy for…

    New York Institute for Special Education Visits Pip’s Island

    A special field trip to Pip’s Island (www.pipsisland.com). We were talking about Joules…Joules Volter and how we defeated him (spin dance) like this (twirl). We’re always looking for different trips for our kids to go on. I came across this and I was like “Wow! This would be great for our kids – a great experience!” So we did some research and we said “Hey, why not?! Let’s do it!” Children that are blind and visually impaired really don’t have incidental learning. Whereas if you have vision, you learn by seeing, and you pick that up. So Pip’s Island allowed them to be fully engaged in that sensory experience. Accessibility…
