I teach in a resource room and I only have the students with moderate disabilities. We work on life skills and goals. However when I worked with student with mild disabilities my resource room was supposed to be for working on goals but it usually ended up being a study hour for my students to get caught up on work from other classes.

We did away with study skills this year and now all of the SPED students have GenEd classes along with a supplemental Goals class. In this class, I teach mostly unrelated ELA and math curriculum. I’m not a fan.

We use to have a sort of resource room, but now since COVID it’s the holding room for kids and staff who become asymptomatic. Not sure what sped support will look like once we return to school.

I am a sped teacher in a high school. Autism Spectrum Disorders are not my area of expertise and I need someone who can help me with behavioural and academic interventions. He has a low average verbal composite and FSIQ on the WISC-5 but after that is very low to extremely low in composite scores for visual spatial, fluid reasoning, processing speed and working memory. The student is duel diagnosed and has a specific learning disability. I am running out of space. See next box.
