The following websites have information about all specific Exceptionalities and educational implications, program ideas and strategies:
Alberta Ministry of Education Special Education Resources
British Columbia Ministry of Education Special Education Resources
Teacher’s Gateway to Special Education
The Special Education Companion, 2002
Possibly the BEST and most under-used document in Special Education! This document lists countless ways to help students under each Exceptionality Category. If you look at ‘Gifted’ you have 10 pages of characterisitics of gifted students, issues, general teaching and learning strategies, program ideas, subject-specific strategies (reading, spelling, mathematics) and assessment strategies!
Do NOT write an IEP without reading this document! Parents and Teachers should use this resource to determine appropriate accommodations, modifications, and strategies for the classroom. Parents, please bring this to your teacher meetings to advocate for your child!
(Yes, I know I’ve posted The Special Education Companion before, it’s great – check it out!)
Note: This is a PERSONAL blog, not an official Ontario Ministry of Education website. This is a forum for sharing.
