When it comes to teaching special learners we know we need the unique perspectives and advice from each team member to incorporate best practices and get the most beneficial results. So... what does that mean for our products? When Meg, our SLP, is working on communication with a student she can't forget that there may be sensory needs that need to be met before learning can happen. When Vanessa, our OT, is working on gross motor she can't forget that movement is a GREAT time to elicit language. When Krystie, our SpEd teacher, is teaching a lesson she can't forget that instruction should be provided at the student's language level- or that those sensory strategies will help her student to attend. Here at AdaptEd we understand that we are stronger together. Each of our products is created by a professional IN THAT FIELD. Better yet, our products are tried and tested by the whole team. That's right- our OT gives feedback on our academic and communication resources . . . and she gets feedback on how her OT resources work in the classroom and other therapy settings. Together we build products that support our students as a whole. Together we get those tricky questions answered. Together we are AdaptEd! Krystie, Vanessa and Meg
