Hello! I am an education graduate student pursuing childhood/special education. I came upon this website and I am interested in touching base with other professionals working in the field. I am very interested in multisensory learning, technology in the classroom, and social-emotional learning. Has anyone had experience with these areas? I would love to hear from you!

Hi Diana -

We do have quite a bit of educators in special education. The place where they hangout most is in our Special Ed Group (http://www.edutopia.org/groups/special-ed). Feel free to reach out to them there -- they love helping out newbies.

We also have a couple of packages you may want to check out on special ed: (http://www.edutopia.org/autism-school-special-needs) and social and emotional learning (http://www.edutopia.org/social-emotional-learning).

Last resource: If you're on Twitter, follow the #spedchat hashtag. They have live chats every week and you can also target your tweets to the special ed community by using that hash tag in your tweets.

Thanks again for joining our community,
Elana
