This program was created to bring information to students, teachers,and librarians to broaden appreciation of different cultures and promote world peace. Additionally, it will enhance communication through on-line communications and provide informationto promote healthy lifestyles. As it pertains to Special Education, categories include Assistive Technology, Cleft Lip or Palate, IEPs, Mental Retardation, ADD, DHH, Gifted, LD, Physically Challenged, Blind and Visually Impaired, Home Schooling, and Mental Health. This program provides categories that include: History of the Disability Lists and links for networking opportunities Materials/Resource sites Related items for sale Papers and periodicals This site contains multi-purpose information for educators as well as parents. It can be useful for preparing lesson plans and/or courses of study. It can enable teachers to better advise parents of support groups to better deal with obstacles they may encounter. The only problem I had with this site was that I found it while looking up the subject of lesson plans. While it does have a minimal amount of lesson plans available, this is not its main emphasis. This is a very good site to learn more about disabilities for both the educator and the families of the students being served.
