Anatomy of a Special Needs Child
18.5% of American children under 18 are Special Needs Children. That doesn't mean that they aren't smart, talented, or capable. Just that they have specific challenges that a "normal" student would not face.
Kids with Special Needs
Isn't every kid special? We think so. But what do we mean when we say "kids with special needs"? This means any kid who might need extra help because of a medical, emotional, or learning problem. These kids have special needs because they might need medicine, therapy, or extra help in school — stuff other kids don't typically need or only need once in a while.
Special Needs Children by Terri Mauro
Special needs is an umbrella term for a wide array of diagnoses, from those that resolve quickly to those that will be a challenge for life and those that are relatively mild to those that are profound. Children with special needs may have developmental delays, medical conditions, psychiatric conditions, and/or congenital conditions. These special needs require accommodations so children can reach their potential.
