In all categories of special education, you will have teachers who love to help educate your child. And you will also find some come for the paycheck. This is true in all schooling. Most educators in special ed. have the desire to help but not always the means or resources. In our experiences, we have found great people in the public school system but the needs of our child learning demanded one on one learning and that is all but impossible to ask for or expect from public funded education. We have partnered with them for social interaction with his peers as well as occupational therapy.
Note - All school districts are not the same! You will need to find out what is available and how it best suits your child. You may even think about moving to a district that fits your needs better.
See our Advocacy web-page for info on how to make sure your child's educational goals are being met.
