My Master’s in Education required me to solve a problem and add resources to the world of Special Education. Saint Mary’s required that I write a traditional 5 chapter synthesis paper that highlighted the problem, previous research, a proposal, how it would be implemented, and the results. The paper is thorough, but don’t bother getting bogged down in the academic requirements or details.
During the 1-2 years of writing this paper, I stumbled across eLearning and thought to myself, “Why am I telling professionals what to do when I can help them make their own choices and lead them to the outcome they want?” I know, like myself, many academic professionals mean well, but they don’t always make decisions based on facts and research.
This project was create to place a professional in the driver’s seat of a teacher seeking to help their student with autism be involved in the school community. So strap in, click around, and see what research says about supporting these kiddos in a school environment.
