Accessing General Curriculum

Many times when a child has a disability, it is difficult to see this child as a general education student. We must remember as our children who have disabilities go to school, they are general education students who just happen to receive special education services. School for all students is friends, recess, lunch, homework, academics, sports, clubs and other extracurricular activities. The school year is the perfect time to foster friendships and build peer relationships, which will help enable children who have disabilities to succeed throughout life.
