Please share your mantras or commiserating stories and how you've survived!
Today, I'm sharing a great article on the use of technology in special education. Although still being used... even though they aren't for every student, worksheets and teaching to the 'traditional' learner is still the primary mode of instruction within the classroom.
Between our visual spatial learners and students who need multi-sensory instruction for true learning to consolidate and transfer into long-term memory, this teaching approach just ain't cutting it anymore.
Great article - read on and share :) http://www.masters-in-special-education.com/technology/

If a child or adolescent struggles with understanding what another person is saying without words, this may lead to social isolation because he or she may not 'get it' and may become difficult to connect with and relate to.
