With Judi’s apologies, there will be no new Special Needs units during the fall months. In September, her husband John had a terrible accident that resulted in a great deal of needed care. He is recovering miraculously well, and Judi and John both appreciate the prayers of each of you!
More good news: Judi plans to return with brand new lessons this January 2014. In the meantime, Judi has 16 months of lessons archived on the site—you can link to the course archives below. — Eds.
Last month we looked at ways assistive technology can help students struggling to write because of special needs that make spelling or penmanship especially challenging. This month we’ll continue to look at ways technology can help your student translate the big idea in his mind into a composition he can share. We’ll even look at ways technology can help with your student’s ability to edit and correct his own work.
Join me as we work together to help your child find new ways to excel.
