How to Use This Course

Parents can find a wealth of helpful information from special needs education consultant Judi Munday.

Course Introduction

Special Needs Educational Consultant, Judi Munday, offers an ongoing series of articles and resources to help those with children with special needs, be it language delays or deficits, dyslexia, or difficulty with math. She provides practical solutions and helpful tips for choosing curriculum and modifying and adapting instruction. An explanation of the skills of learning—acquiring, organizing, storing, and retrieving information—and where possible breakdowns may occur along the path is helpful for those who are seeking to understand the best course of action to facilitate their child’s success. A discussion of assistive technologies for struggling readers and writers and those students who struggle with math may encourage parents and reduce the anxiety and stress a student with difficulties often feels. Parents of children with dyslexia will appreciate the lengthy discussion and advice Judi gives. Judi is also the author of Teaching a Child with Special Needs at Home and at School, a 296-page book full of easy-to-use instructional strategies and advice about “what works” – for both parents who homeschool and for teachers who work with students with special needs. You can learn more about the book at www.teachingachildwithspecialneeds.com/.
