Special education teachers often face unique challenges when trying to find a curriculum to use with their students that have varying needs. Students in special education often lack critical social skills and require programs that will aid them in their development.
I know how overwhelmed special education teachers can feel when it comes to teaching full-time, working with students who have various needs, crafting IEPs, and finding programs that can support their efforts. I spent over 20 years in the classroom as a special education teacher, and never found one program that was as comprehensive to teach social skills—until I discovered the Healthy Relationships Curriculum.
Unlike other curriculums, our program was designed by special educators for special educators. It provides all the resources and tools that you will need to help teach your students with varying needs. Our program provides lessons on everything from dating, how to maintain personal space, and even hygiene and cleanliness.
One of the best features of the Healthy Relationships Curriculum is that the methods it uses to teach students these skills are fun, interactive, and designed to hold their attention. We have created over 140 videos and dozens of lessons designed to show students how to develop and strengthen their social skills and we also feature role-playing scenarios so students can get that practical, hands-on experience.
It is probably obvious by now, but I’m very passionate about our Healthy Relationships Curriculum and firmly believe it is truly the best resource available for special education teachers. Don’t just take my word for it. Take a look at our sample lessons here and schedule a free demonstration with me to learn more about the Healthy Relationships Curriculum.
