A network to share best practices for children with special needs
In keep with our theme this month on fitness and fun, here is a heartwarming story I came across that I had to share! "Mr. Newton" is a yellow lab/retriever mix that works with Adapted PE Teacher Steve Miller in the Orlando, FL area. This canine's job is to help students with special needs to move more, follow directions and feel safer and calmer during the often busy PE sessions. What an inspirational idea and hats off to Steve for finding creative ways to bring movement, motivation and joy to his students!
