As a special educator you have a vast amount of services, guidance, collaboration, and resources at your fingertips about all issues dealing with disabilities. However, it is equally as important that parents of children with disabilities be as informed as possible. The field of special education, with its laws, resources, materials, educational options, etc., can be so vast and complicated that at times it can seem very overwhelming. However, for parents it can seem like a full time job to keep current with the latest and most important information as it relates to their children. The following Parent Teacher Conference Handout is a good starting place for disability awareness. Your student’s parents can explore these sites to gain a good foundation of what is available.
