Welcome to the Help for Special Educators Podcast! Special Education is a tough job… it can be overwhelming when you are new and have to figure out how to run an IEP meeting, communicate effectively with parents and other teachers, collect data, etc. However, there is help for special educators here! My goal is to help special ed teachers with time-saving solutions and also to bring the global special education community together. (Last time I checked, the podcast has been heard in over 65 countries, reaching people on every continent!)
Each episode deals with topics of interest to special educators, however, I’ve heard that general ed teachers have enjoyed it, too. You will get great ideas for what to teach/lesson planning, behavior issues, scheduling, room setup, and more.
