If you’re a special education teacher, school based SLP or OT, then you know what it’s like inside the SDC classroom. You’re not phased by: One kid having a melt-down... while you’re placing a token on someone's board… while you’re simultaneously redirecting an off task student and answering an assistant's question. You’re a multi-tasker! You know hitting, kicking, screaming, and spitting are everyday aspects of your job. But you don’t take that lying down- you’ve got a whole arsenal to fight back: data collection, behavior modification, differentiation, reinforcement systems, sensory regulating systems, augmentative communication , and specialized academic instruction with Universal Design for learning. These are your weapons of choice. If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place. At SpedTroopers we know it takes a village. We are a group of specialists who truly believe in the team aspect of special education. We know that when we work together using a multidisciplinary approach we increase student independence and support life-long outcomes. We love devouring the latest research, and implementing it ASAP. We know that you’re crazy busy, that you’re constantly being pulled in tons of different directions and that your basic training wasn’t sufficient to meet all of the demands that are constantly being thrown at you. We’re here to help! We hope to be the calm in the storm. To provide you with useful, relevant and easily implemental tip, tricks and resources, so you can go back to the battlefield tomorrow refreshed and ready to fight on! Want to hear more?
