"Hi Margaret Ann,
Welcome to My Special Needs Network! I am Pam Brogdon and do a weekly blog on the network. I read with interest your comments about why you are passionate about special needs. I am a former Director of Special Education for a school…"
I have 2 special needs children that are in a way "school-less" meaning they are not truly accommodated in their current schools and while passionate are left to teachers that truly do not understand learning
Skills: these are areas where I have expertise and might be able to help others.
Needs: these are areas where I have questions and will be looking to learn from others.
BALANCE, BODY WORKS, COMMUNICATION, FINE MOTOR, FURNITURE, INTEGRATIVE THERAPIES, MOBILITY, POSITIONING, RESOURCES, SENSORY SOLUTIONS, VESTIBULAR ORIENTATION, VISUAL MOTOR
The most valuable piece of advice I would offer to others regarding special needs.
Century 21 schools will accommodate these learners - if we do a better job in early childhood and teach the way the brain work we can reduce resource needs greatly - the tide is turning - todays successful learners may be tomorrow special needs children
What I hope to gain from My Special Needs Network

Welcome to My Special Needs Network! I am Pam Brogdon and do a weekly blog on the network. I read with interest your comments about why you are passionate about special needs. I am a former Director of Special Education for a school district in SC. I, too, am very passionate about making sure "our" children's needs are met and the "playing field" or classroom is "level". You are so right; most teachers do not understand how children learn and especially, that although children learn differently, that does not mean that they cannot learn! I would love to do a blog on this.....any issues that are highlighted for you right now? Let's work together to bring awareness and change ! Look forward to hearing from you! firstname.lastname@example.org . Have a great day. Pam Brogdon
