Kudos to Creek View Elementary for celebrating Exceptional Children’s Week!
About Exceptional Children’s Week
The Council for Exceptional Children initiated Exceptional Children’s Month as a means to educate the public about children with exceptionalities and garner support for special education. Since its inception, this week has served to spotlight the capabilities of children and youth with exceptionalities and the programs that support them in their communities.
Special education is making great strides, and, as a result, doors continue to open for students with exceptionalities to achieve academic and life-long personal success. When we invest in the education of students with exceptionalities, we provide the opportunities to become independent, self-sufficient citizens who give back to their communities.
Question: Do you, or does your school have a special way of teaching about compassion, understanding and support of children with exceptionalities? We’d love for you to share!
