With open arms...

January 20, 2010

In my 4 years of teaching, I have been faced with some extremely challenging situations involving some amazing kids who suffer from autism and ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) My problem is, I put my heart and soul into my kids each year and when I have a child in my class with special needs, I feel completely helpless. More times than not, the days go by smoothly with these children and I feel a great connection and interaction with them. However, when something disrupts their routine or doesnt "click" well with them I'm out of my element, so to speak. Its heartbreaking and disheartening. I am a Montessori, early ed experienced teacher and ill equipt to handle the needs of children who deserve special attention and care. So to better educate myself, I am constantly reading the latest journals and articles dealing with these matters. I found this great one that deals with supporting children who face social challenges, specifically asperger syndrome via www.education.com and found it to be very insightful.
