Anyone have ideas about how to take daily “attendance “ for our students who have no internet access to be able to do anything online and have been given packets?

The Autism Helper has great social stories about what is going on, including social distancing, not going to school for a while, and doing school work at home!

Is anyone having luck with teaching writing online? My parents are saying it’s like pulling teeth and I don’t have any more luck doing our normal routines during our virtual lessons.

I feel horrible even writing this...Am I the only teacher who is loving remote teaching. My kids have horrible behavior and it’s so nice having a break from it. I get to relax and not be worn down.

Would anyone be interested in participating in a research study? The only requirements are to be a school district employee and have a child in the district with special needs. Please help!!!

I teach children with severe and profound disabilities so online learning is not an option, but I video call the parents so the kids can see me because I know it’s very difficult for the parents

I have extreme anxiety about teaching Special Education online. I just don’t even understand how it will work without manipulatives, interactions etc etc. This whole situation is just so horrible!!!

I work in a self-contained EBD program. In school we use very structured point systems that allow them to buy prizes to motivate them. Anyone have great ideas for motivating students from afar?

Are there any online data tools/apps that you like to use for data collection for our special education students? I am looking to switch up my method of data collection!

What to do when the SpEd teacher tells students you talk bad about them when you do no such thing? I've had issues with the SpEd team at various time, but this takes the cake! I did confront her.
