Specialedpost is a “passion-project” that was created by teachers and parents who want to stay abreast of current trends in special education. Our contributors all have primary careers as teachers, administrators, parents and advocates, and we created this web source because we found that when we attended IEPs we often had questions about new therapies, the latest science on autism or new laws that might change the way we taught. I volunteered to be the editor because I had worked as a freelance journalist for several years before I became a special education teacher.
As of now we have many contributors, and Specialedpost has grown into a news source that reflects the varied agendas of its contributors. We all continue to volunteer our time and efforts to keep each other informed, and as always we invite anyone who works with special education students or who has a family member who receives special education services to share their stories, opinions or ideas regarding special education.
Thank you so much for reading what we post, and please consider sending in any ideas you would like to share with your community.
