Good Morning littlek,
I THANK you as graciously as I know how (on a page from a distance).
My experience with SpEd teachers and coaches has been VERY POSITIVE. I have a 44 year old daughter, who spent twenty years in special education, and for that reason she can 'speak' well enough for ME to understand--(she has a very small mouth) 8 years of speech training gave her confidence and desire if not perfection!
Now, I have a grandson with Cerebral Palsy- the victim of a misplaced needle in the brain as a 'newborn'. He is bright, beautiful, entertaining, and beloved to his twin brother, and we all.
Being subject to seizures, and having slowed reaction performances; he is in the Resources classes of his school, and has some MARVELOUS Special Ed instructors. God bless them, and you ALL, who make learning 'normal' for ones who are more stressfully challenged.
