Special Education 101 (Infograph)

Ever wonder how Special Education works? Don't feel bad if you don't. Before we were thrown into Special Education world, I had no clue either.

Special Education is something that every parent needs to be aware of - even if you don't have a kid with special needs. Why? Because "more than 1/2 of students with disabilities spend 80% of their time in general education classrooms."

That's right - Special Ed kids spend the majority of their day with "typical" kids. As parents, it is our responsibility to teach our kids about kids with special needs. 

Acceptance and awareness begins at home. But you cannot teach it, if you do not understand it.    

So check out this cool infograph. It really breaks it down. And for more information on Autism - check out my Autism 101 page by clicking HERE
