The evidence is a collection of assignments that I completed for my Special Education Licensure Courses. I had the option of submitting a more creative explanation of different kinds of disabilities to demonstrate my understanding of the how the disability affects students.
I have also included links to a great website called “Through Your Child’s Eyes” hosted by Understood.org that creates personalized simulations of what it is like to have learning disabilities in a classroom. These are helpful to understanding what a child who is experiencing learning difficulties in the classroom is going through and is a great tool when trying to advocate for a student with learning disabilities.
