Making special education work for your child during COVID-19

Even in normal times, parents wrestle with decisions about how best to support their children’s development. Now, however, parents are faced with nearly-unprecedented choices, and problems with no clear solutions: What if in-person schooling is better for emotional health, but remote schooling is better for physical health? How can children foster social skills without typical social interactions? How can parents select among learning environments when all the options have clear downsides?

These concerns and choices are even more difficult for parents of children with disabilities, who are among the most vulnerable students and who are at increased risk of regression during school disruptions.

What Equality Law means for you as a School

NEU teachers’ union votes to build inclusive mainstream education for children and young people with SEND

By Richard Rieser, taken from Special Needs Jungle

Last Thursday (8th April 2021) the largest education union in the UK, the National Education Union voted, with only one abstention and none against, to build a broad-based campaign to address disability in schools in England and Wales for both students and staff. As well as the MD of World of Inclusion, I am the current Equality Officer in the NEU Hackney District, and moved the motion on behalf of the Disabled Members’ Conference.

I believe this is a great day for the NEU, disabled people, parents of disabled students, and education in general, to achieve unity on such a wide-ranging motion. Clearly, a range of Government policies on curriculum, assessment, privatisation, real-term funding cuts, disproportionate exclusion rates, and failure to implement disability equality duties under the Equalities Act, has meant that disabled children and young people have been let down by the mainstream school system. These outcomes, when combined with race and poverty, have led to multiple failures.

What Do Universities Offer for Teaching Disabled Students? 

Even if you differ from other students, it is not a reason to deprive yourself of higher education since many universities offer comfy conditions.

The very fact that the world develops at a rapid speed becomes an additional stress source pretty often. Nonetheless, many life aspects have been dramatically improved and changed many people’s lives for the better. Thus, nowadays, disabled people can get higher education in the best US universities. In general, the USA is considered one of the most comfortable countries for disabled students. The law on professional rehabilitation, training, and employment of persons with disabilities was adopted back in the 1970s. It has become a foundation for developing tendencies that suggest the availability of comfortable learning conditions for disabled people in various academic institutions. For example, they modify the teaching process with special technologies, and students can be provided with special accommodation, a mentor, and even a paper helper. Thus, every student can become a full-fledged member of the student community despite their health issues and diagnoses. Disabilities shouldn’t become a stumbling block on the way to education if you have a tremendous desire to study.

It’s not easy supporting a loved one with a disability. Sometimes the responsibilities can be challenging. However, there are some ways to make it easier. This article will discuss how to provide emotional and physical support to your loved one who has a disability.

It is important first to understand the extent of their needs and limitations. It can be easy for family members who want to help but don’t know how or who are simply too busy to get overwhelmed by all of the tasks that need completing on behalf of their loved one.

The following are some general guidelines for supporting loved ones with disabilities.

How Adult Education Classes Can Help Advance Your Career

As time progresses so do the challenges increase about our career. One needs to be on top of the trend if they want to grow in their career. 

However, the whole idea of going back to college and working at the same time can be too stressful for some to balance. This has led to the popularity of online degrees which adults can easily take while maintaining pretty much the same lifestyle.
