Blog discoveries in Special Needs Education

I came across a new blog about special needs teaching today <a href= />Teaching Learners with Multiple Needs</a> and wanted to share a resource that Kate (the blogger) mentions in her latest post - the tarheel reader.

It is a free resource of many simple books which can be used on a whiteboard/laptop/ or communication machines which can be adapted by others to cater for the requirements of their own children.  There is access to flickr for photographs to make your own and the ability to share with others.  It is certainly going to be a useful resource to many and will help me when I write and illustrate my own books (which I often have to do for the children I teach to convey the text type, grammatical structure, verbs, adjectives or adverbs I am focusing on that week).  I would certainly recommend a visit to check out the wide variety of books already on there.

Another blog which I have newly discovered and am going to be reading from the very beginning I think is that tells the trials and tribulations of a special needs educator over the past seven years!!  Wow - to be doing the job and blogging about it for that many years is truly amazing.  I am really looking forward to reading it - a bit like contemplating a cosy snuggle up with a good book.

I am always interested in what you have to tell me so let me know if you have come across any other special education blogs you particularly like or have found useful.


  1. Thank you so much for your mention. I hope you enjoy reading it. In the beginning I used to write. A lot. There is a lot of content (About 1800 over the last 7 years), so please immerse yourself in the experiences of my life in teaching. It's been one heck of a ride. Let me know what you think.


  2. I'm up to September 2007 - I try to read the more relevant posts linked to teaching or your great book reviews but I keep being side tracked by all of your other interests!! Really enjoying the read - many thanks.
