special needs week

I have read on facebook the following statement a few times on people's satus bars this morning:

"People need to understand that children
with special needs are not sick, they are not searching for a cure,
just acceptance. This week is for special needs education. Ninety three
percent of the people will not copy and paste this. Will you be part of
the seven percent that will and will you leave it on your wall for at
least an hour???"

I know that more people glance at my blog articles than read my facebook status and so I decided to include the statement here.

I have also found a special needs education pack produced by the Orchard Hill Elementary School about special needs education.  You might find it interesting if your knowledge of special needs is limited or naively prejudiced.  If you want to know more, take a glance at it.

So, there lies the challenge.  Will you distribute the paragraph above?  Will you read a little about special needs?  I hope so.

    That’s all good Lloyd but it’s not just children with special needs. They grow into adults with special needs too. Adults whose educational needs will struggle to be met once planned cuts to FE go ahead. The paragraph you found is written by an American as it’s special needs education week in the US not here. I did like your links tho!

    Of course you are correct M.
    I included the information without the intent of ommiting anyone who might be affected by having special needs or indeed their carers for that matter.
    If you have any links to resources for adults or carers of adults with special needs please do feel free to include the links in this thread.
    All the best.
