Okay.....the Christmas fun has begun!  I always try to cram as many Christmas themed activities into December that I possibly can. I've spent some time finding some great ideas on Pinterest.   You can find them here: http://pinterest.com/parkermama/


Anyone else on Pinterest that wants to share their great finds for their kids with special needs?

I'm so excited to see so many members in our Special Learners group!    

It would be great to get everyone talking, asking questions, and sharing ideas.

To help with this I'm going to begin with a question or two for all of YOU.


What would you like to see in this group?  Any areas of interest you would like to see discussed? 

I need some input from YOU! 

And.....since you are already here....how about sharing your blog names and urls. Tell us a little bit about what you blog about and why. 

Are you on Twitter?  Share your Twitter handles so we can follow each other.

Can't wait to see everyone's replies!

Anyone using light boards to engage their special learners?  I purchased a small one (for a buck!) at a yard sale this summer.  It's been such a hit with Parker that my Mom is thinking of getting him a bigger one for his birthday.    The only hang up is finding overhead manipulatives that are big enough for Parker to grasp.  Any ideas?  We have an alphabet set and a number set but they are each only about 3/4 of an inch in height.  Way too teeny for P to grasp!

Introduction: Hi, I am excited to be part of this group. I blog at http://toddlerapproved.blogspot.com/

I am a former special education teacher for children with communication disabilities. I blog about learning activities and crafts that typically focus on embedding language learning into play/activities. I am excited to discover other blogs focused on special learners. I would love any of you to stop by my blog and share your blog with me!

I have a grandson who is struggling to learn to read. He is now being taught with the McGuiness method and it seems to be helping him alot. Has anyone had any experience with this teaching method?

Hello. I am just getting started here, so I will be posting some ideas, links, and info here as soon as I get comfortable with how things work. I think this will be a great exchange of ideas if everyone contributes. Thanks for accepting me!

Parker and I wanted to share with you our latest way to bring the world to your kid when your kid can't go out into the world.

It actually works for any and all kids.  :)
