I am so excited be a guest blogger today. My name is Amanda Myers and my regular blog is A Special Kind of Class. I have truly taught a special kind of class for 20 years. The 7 children in my class each year have either a physical and/or speech disability. Many of them do not speak at all and many have little to no fine motor skills. This makes participating in the regular school program challenging. My job is to figure out the best way for them to participate and learn before sending them back to their home school board. I thought I would share a little about how I adapted an art project for my students. Adapting lessons for children with special needs often does not require any special skills, just a willingness to think outside the box. Oftentimes ordinary items can be used. Most of the items featured below came from Lakeshore. They were not specifically designed for children with special needs but are easy to use. I hope my post inspires you to try something new with your students.
