Special Education and Online Learning

Online learning has been found very effective in meeting the academic needs of children with physical and/or learning disabilities. It offers the flexibility, privacy, quietness, and one-on-one attention that many special education children need to reach their full potential. However, most online educational programs don’t offer training in some of the additional skills that special education students often needs, such as social skills and emotional maturity. In this article, we are going to look at three inexpensive (if not outright free) online tools that can help your child with skills that just aren’t taught in a textbook.

Watch Me Learn

For special education students, social skills can present a challenge. Watch Me Learn is one such program, with online videos for visual learners that help them with skills that others take for granted. They use children in the videos to model appropriate behavior to make the scenarios relatable, and encourage your child to practice these behaviors. The goal of Watch Me Learn is to make learning social skills both exciting, practical, and fun. The videos are available on DVDs or streaming online, and you only need to purchase the videos that you want.

The Social Express

The Social Express is an online software package that helps teach your child social and emotional skills in a fun and interactive way. It helps them with things like eye contact, figurative language, inferring what it going to happen next, using appropriate social behavior, figuring out what to talk about, and more. It can be purchased via a monthly or yearly subscription, providing access to 81 interactive webisodes, assessments, teaching plans, a game room, and many other special features. These interactive videos use animated (yet realistic) characters with excellent voice-acting to engage your child and teach them critical skills at the same time.

Every Day Life

Children with disabilities can be challenged by things that others take for granted. That’s where a program like Every Day Life comes in. Every Day Life offers online tutorials for things like shopping with a grocery list, making sure you get the correct items by going to the correct sections and carefully reading labels. It’s interactive, much like a game, and includes appropriate background noise to help simulate a real situation. Other topics include counting change, paying bills, using an ATM machine, and using a vending machine, just to name a few. These lessons are free, easy to use, available online, and no registration or sign up is required.

Conclusion

These three tools – Watch Me Learn, The Social Express, and Every Day Life – are just three of many additional resources and supplements available to the parents of special education students. Even on a limited budget you can get expert teaching material to help your child succeed not just academically, but social and emotionally as well. From learning how to participate in a conversation with friends to using an ATM or asking a question, your child can not only learn necessary skills but build up their self-esteem.

Homeschooling and Science: A Winning Combination

Science…..The mere word conjures up images of lab coats, beakers, and safety glasses. In the homeschool realm, however, labs, chemicals, and equipment are not so readily available. Beyond that, many in the faith based homeschool community take issue with certain aspects of science that are taught in public schools. As a result, they can be leery of the subject. This, unfortunately, can lead to an avoidance of science altogether. In this day and age, science and math careers are valued more than ever, and it is increasingly important to raise children who have fa firm grasp of scientific topics and thinking. So, how can that be accomplished in a homeschool environment? It’s easier than you think.

Familiarity with scientific knowledge is part of producing a well rounded individual. The scientific method encourages objectivity, experimentation, and analytical skills, as well as developing higher level thinking skills that students will carry with them throughout life. In addition, conducting scientific experiments, whether they succeed or fail, teaches students that even failures are opportunities to learn. The ability to approach problems with logic and objectivity will carry over into whatever career path they choose. Working these concepts into a homeschool day can be as simple as letting your child conduct an experiment to answer one of their own questions. If the child is young, in the height of “question asking” years, conduct the experiment with them. Laugh and have fun if it fails, and talk about what the failure teaches you both, so that they see that failures can always be made into learning opportunities. Kitchen experiments are among the easiest and most fun for kids to do. Creating their own food combinations and predicting whether the results will taste good or not is simple and the results will certainly make an impression as they taste their own creations.

Outdoors, studying things such as nature and weather open the door to incorporating many subjects into one lesson, as well as teaching the value of observing the world around us. Collecting and identifying leaves, rocks, or insects on a nature hike allow your child to explore and exercise, while learning a new way to look at the world around them. Nature is beautiful, and being outside is fun, but it can also be scientific. Nature journals let them keep records of their observations, while honing writing skills. Teaching them to look up information on the what they find encourages independent investigation, and they can write reports about their discoveries. Does your child love computers and iPads? Teach them that those wouldn’t exist without science, and perhaps delve in to the world of basic programming concepts and how circuits work. They can build their own circuits from kits designed for kids, or learn to code with fun, creative apps.

Science is all around us, yet I hear so many students (and parents!) talk about how “hard” it is. If you want to raise scientifically smart kids, all it takes is some creativity to take the “hard” out of your science curriculum and replace it with “fun.”

Direct mail in a nutshell

Direct mail (also known as advertising mail) is often used in direct marketing and its main recipients are usually existing customers of the company. In order for direct mail to be successful, some basic conditions need to be met.  An important element in this form of advertising is the current database of company customers as well as certain issues related to the very act of direct mail delivery. These factors include: offer’s appeal, aesthetics and attractiveness of the materials delivered to the recipient by postal mail.

Direct mail is used primarily for selling specific products. It is often used also to stay in touch with the customer and keep them aware of new products introduced on the market by the advertiser.

The appeal of direct mail depends on many factors, starting from the envelope itself. It is the envelope that will determine whether or not the recipient chooses to read the materials addressed to them. Unfortunately, disregarding the envelope is a common mistake that leads to both envelope and its content landing in the trash unopened. A chic and intriguing envelope significantly increases the chance of the recipient looking inside of it and reading the materials.

When it comes to direct mail, advertising letter also plays a crucial role and its content must be carefully planned out. To a certain extent, this letter replaces the seller. Its personal nature, skillful use of colloquial language and aesthetics are the key to success. The letter may be long, although it is recommended it doesn’t exceed four pages. It is worth taking care of the letter’s legibility and proper choice of the font.

Apart from the letter, the envelope should contain a brochure with the product or service you are advertising, as well as an order form that the customer should fill out and send back to the company in case they are interested. To make the order more plausible to take place, a return envelope becomes an essential element in direct mail marketing.
