Special education can seem mighty mysterious to people unfamiliar with the profession. That fact never occurred to me during my years as a teacher. After all, I was raised by a teacher who talked about her work every night at supper. When I went to college, my major in elementary education and minor in special ed filled in any gaps remaining in my understanding of the job.
Special Education 101 Infographic Solves the Mystery
But when I left teaching after 25 years, I finally realized not everyone had access to education’s inside track. Since then, I’ve tried to explain special education teaching and law to curious parents, without great success. So I was very pleased to receive an email from Sarah Fudin. She works at I work in community relations for the University of Southern California’s Rossier School of Education. She is part of a team that recently launched a Special Education 101 infographic, which gives an overview of the field. They created the chart as a tool to recruit potential teachers. In the process, they created at tool taht provides a great deal of information about special needs vocabulary, statistics, and federal funding. The special education infographic is also colorful and aesthetically pleasing, no small feat considering the amount of statistics it contains.
Special Education Infographic Needs to Be Passed On
Sarah and her team encourage you to pass the link to the infographic on to any interested parties. Think parents of kids who receive special ed services, parents trying to get services for their children, young people considering a career in education. Maybe even your children who are considering a career in the field because they have hearts of compassion for kids with special needs.
