πŸ“ŒMyth: "Kids in special education will be labelled forever."
πŸ“ŒFact: It is natural to worry about the stigma of a label over a child. But special education focuses on services and supports based on the child's needs - not the label.
πŸ“ŒAlso keep in mind that getting the help that the child needs now doesn't necessarily mean the child will be in special education his/her entire school career.

πŸ“ŒGlobally, International Women's Day is celebrated on March 8. It is a day set aside to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

πŸ“ŒThere are two themes for the 2019 International Women's Day - "Balance For Better" and the United Nations' official theme, Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change.'

πŸ“ŒDespite persistent stereotypes and biases against women in different parts of the world, many women have continued to make significant achievements. These great female achievers deserve to be celebrated. 

πŸ“ŒToday, we join the rest of the world to celebrate all women around the world. Happy Women's Day!

πŸ“ŒToday we're throwing it back to the history and origins of special education, as far back as the 18th Century, following the American and French Revolutions when effective procedures were devised for teaching children with sensory impairments.
πŸ“ŒEarly in the 19th Century, the first systematic attempts were made to educate so called "idiotic" and "insane" children (those who today are said to have intellectual disabilities and emotional or behavioural disorders). As a special educator, I remain thankful for so much progress that has been made over time.
πŸ“ŒIf you are considering entering the field of special education, you are taking advantage of an opportunity not afforded to people in previous generations. So let's learn from special education history and make progress into a brighter future for individuals with special needs.
