Web based resources for Physically Handicapped students (and other special needs students)

Final post in a series on Internet resources for Educators working with Special Needs students.

This week’s post is a bit of a mixed bag. I’ll wrap up this 5 part series with some information on resources for students with physical handicaps (other than visual impairments, and hearing impairments, covered the last two weeks). I will also cite a few more general resources for working with special needs students, as the focus on specific categories of needs in these recent posts could not (by its very definition) include all types of disabilities. I have come across a number of informative links pages that can be useful to educators and administrators working with the wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional disabilities that students can face, and wanted to share them here.

Resources for educators working with physically handicapped students
A range of resources, including accommodations, techniques, and more, for helping students with physical handicaps.

- I’ll start with this informative overview of assistive technologies for the physically handicapped from Wikipedia.

- Next, these techniques & insights from specialed.about.com.
