Special Needs Students

I'm writing in the hope of having some people that have worked with students who have special needs respond to me. Personally, I don't think I could teach to students who have too much of an handicap or a problem, I just can't do it. Every time I'm around a person who is handicapped I always feel so awful and I don't know why, I think I have to much pity for them and I really wouldn't want to have to live that way. Of course, if I had to do it I'd be cool with it, but I'd rather not. As for learning disabilities I guess I'd have less of a hard time with that.

The thread is pretty old and I believe that you have already dealt with that issue successfully. However I believe that the longer you stay among students with disabilities the more casual you tend to feel. Just takes some time and willingness to change. Keep us posted!

For students with less obvious disabilities, such as those who have learning difficulties, two primary methods have been used for identifying them: the discrepancy model and the response to intervention model. The discrepancy model depends on the teacher noticing that the students' achievements are noticeably below what is expected.
