if you are under the impression that receiving Special Education services still means your ostracized and treated differently from your peers, then this post is for you⁠ ⁠ Special Ed today looks soooo different than it did in the past⁠ ⁠ there is such a WIDE range of services and placements⁠ ⁠ and it's a federal requirement that students are placed in the least restrictive environment (LRE)⁠ ⁠ meaning, we only give them as much support as they need to succeed and we leave them with their general ed peers as often as possible⁠ ⁠ one student's LRE may be in a general education classroom where a special ed teacher just provides consultative supports⁠ ⁠ another student's LRE may be in a classroom with two teachers (one general ed and one special ed) and a mix of general and special ed students⁠ ⁠ and another students LRE may be in a small group self-contained classroom⁠ ⁠ and there are other LRE options along the continuum of services as well!⁠ ⁠ it is all based on each individual student's educational needs⁠ ⁠ and here's the beauty of it all: kids hardly ever know who is in special education and who isn't⁠ ⁠ to them, they just think that classes are different sizes, some have two teachers, some have one⁠ ⁠ Special Education is so much more inclusive now than it's ever been, and it's really beautiful.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #psychologists #elementaryschooldays #parentadvocate #specialeducationteacher #thrivewithchristina #atlbloggers #viningsga #adhdparent #atlblogger #specialeducationclassroom #specialneedsparentsunite #elementaryschoolstudents #atlantageorgia #adhdparentingcoach #specialeducator #specialneedsparentsrock #elementaryschool #hotlanta #autismparenting #specialeducationteachers #specialedparents #school #elementaryschoollife #atlanta #elementaryschoolcounselor #elementaryschoolfriends #specialeducators #specialneedsparenting #atlantalife

and so here we are, week three of stay at home, study at home and work from home. it's likely that you've developed a routine, or a schedule even to help you stay occupied and keep your sanity. i thought i'd share some of my favorite things to keep me in good mood, organized and productive, as much as possible. 1. I always make my bed in the morning. the simple act of cleaning up the bedroom creates an amazing ripple effect for me and I want to keep the entire house neat and tidy as the day goes on. which can be a challenge with two littles. 2. no social media before coffee. i am serious. i made a mistake of checking my feed before i got in the shower a few days last week and it totally took over my head space, not in a good way. shower time is my quiet time when i get to be grateful for another day and another chance, set my intentions for the day and get into a positive mind frame. filling that time with mindless inner chatter about what i had just seen or read makes for a mindless start to the day. 3. a little makeup and a little hair styling goes a LONG way these days. it may be the last thing on your mind, i know, i get it, i rarely do it myself having worked from home for the last decade. yet, every time i make it happen, my mood shifts, i feel good about myself and so i can put more good into my family. 4. downstairs as we start home school, i always diffuse peppermint oil (to keep our minds sharp and focused) and play soft music. personal favorite is Yiruma (piano music). we make music a part of our day, i am so grateful for music! 5. once a day i must consume some mind food - usually it's a podcast i listen to while taking a walk, or a feel good article i read before bed. i noticed how much it helps me stay positive. what are your favorite things to keep yourself productive and feeling good these days? tell me in the comments - would love to know!
