About Us

 

Hello,

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.

 

Sincerely,

Susan Gordon

    Perfect timing coming upon this site. Been trying to help my son, now 12~ get a correct diagnosis:
    ADD-Dysgraphia-Dyslexia & Dysgraphia-Envirornmental Factors, (Teacher, demeaned him at a critical time…in front of friends about reading, “Comic Books,” he bought at the Book Fair….) as to what all was causing our sons’s heart-breaking plummet into depression, lethargy, and an overall pall of being a failure. Paying lots of money, to three reputable institutions, for a correct assessment. Final outcome being these 1/2” pristing documents, full of so much Pedagogy (that I started to really like my own Master’s Thesis,) that might as well have been Sanskrit. Worse than that, these sweeping diagnosis of his “mental and brain issues” by a Psychiatrist and then Learning Diagnostician, who spent merely minutes observing him before making,almost, conclusive observations.

  3. Susan,
    I am writing because the Special Ed Post started arriving in my inbox in the last 6 months to a year, and I want to know more about it.
    Our resource site for parents publishes a lot of writing around the topic of ADHD — we publish 4 different blogs on a weekly basis. SpecialEd Post is a nice publication, and I would like to support it (we do a lot of collaboration and our weekly newsletter includes a section promoting ADHD programs all over the country/globe). I’d love to set up some time to talk.
    Warmly,

    Elaine

  4. Will you please consider sharing this information with your stakeholders? Together, we can move our field into a new direction.

    YAI International Conference: “ The Dawn of a New Era, “ May 6-9, 2013, Hilton New York in midtown Manhattan

    With expanding needs and budget cuts, the field of developmental and intellectual disabilities has never been more important than it is today. Despite these challenges our field is transforming. This year’s conference will bring together families, self-advocates and professionals at all levels to shape the future of our field. We will identify new and better ways for people with different abilities to live the life they desire and deserve. Join us as we explore new models of care founded on potential and strengths, rather than deficits. To register or for more information, visit yai.org/conference2013 or call 212-273-6472.

    Thank you for your consideration.
