Exceptional Children Resources

Archived EC Weekly Newsletters

Approximately weekly, our Exceptional Children’s Department sends out newsletters containing timely resources and information to support parent education in the area of collaborative education of students with disabilities. These resources are available for all parents. However, each week we focus on timely topics or needs that have surfaced through parent feedback.

One of the interesting challenges brought about by the COVID-19 school closures is the loss of student skill development. It can be complex to distinguish between a regular education student or special education student who has lost academic achievement gains due to remote instruction or a lack of instruction in some unique situations. This section is designed to help navigate the difference between a suspected disability and the unfortunate loss of skills due to less-than-ideal instructional circumstances as a result of health department restrictions.
