  1. Larry!
    So glad to see you bringing up this important topic – I’m afraid I do not encounter many references to students with special needs on “blogosphere” or “twittersphere”.
    However, your question is extremely broad! As a teacher of English as a foreign language in special educaton, I believe that you would be able to offer far more informative information to your readers if you broke down the question.
    Here are some sample questions and suggestions:
    1) Q: How to integrate the special needs learner in the regular classroom
    A: http://itdi.pro/blog/2012/04/15/encouraging-student-collaboration-naomi-epstein/
    2) Q: Effective strategies with weak learners who need personalized material
    A: Here’s one: http://www.mikejharrison.com/2011/03/reverse-reading-comprehension-writing-lesson-activity/

    Also, teachers need information about the problem, not just classroom tips. Being a warm and understanding teacher may be crucial but if you have no idea the way a LD child sees the text you won’t be able to help the child. I really recommend watching this for starters:
