For special education teachers, finding curriculums that will clearly educate your students about critical life and social skills activities can be tough. Trust me, I know. I spent more than 20 years as a special education teacher, and the challenges that educators face in this space are unique. You need resources, programs, and learning materials that students can understand and find interesting, especially when you are working with adolescents.
In the era we are living in, it seems like educators have to work overtime to keep their students’ attention and ensure they are engaging with the material. From smartphones to social media, there is a plethora of information for students to be distracted by.
Additionally, many schools lack adequate funding, and special education teachers often find themselves in a position of trying to “make do” with what curriculums are laying around. That is why I am so passionate about our Healthy Relationships Curriculum. It is a comprehensive and highly adaptable educational program that teaches challenging life and social skills activities to students with varying needs.
Our program covers topics like dating, appropriate physical boundaries, hygiene, cyberbullying, and how complete household chores—real, everyday issues that are impacting your students. Our program has been designed by special education teachers for special education teachers, and it encourages students not only how to pursue and maintain healthy relationships but to find value in doing so. If you are working with students with varying needs, who are on the autism spectrum, have a developmental and intellectual disability, or navigating an emotional challenge, the Healthy Relationships Curriculum
