My name is Courtney and I am currently in my last year of receiving my elementary education degree through Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Right now, I am taking a class through Southeastern Illinois College about children with special needs. This class discusses children with special needs and how every teacher needs to accommodate for every child. I have read a lot in the book, but I would really like to get some true advise from some parents. Right now we are discussing how the child's special need effects the family and also parent teacher collaboration. If you have any views, comments, stories, or advice I would love to hear about it! Thank you so much for all that you do!
