We were invited to share the Infographic titled Anatomy of a Special Needs Child by Masters in Special Education Degrees on our Special Needs Blog.
18.5% of American Children under 18 are special needs students. That doesn’t mean they aren’t smart, talented, or capable. Just that they have specific challenges that a “normal” student wouldn’t face. The infographic has valuable information on the following:
Four major types of special needs children.
1.)Physical– Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Asthma, Epilepsy, etc.
2.) Developmental–Down syndrome, autism, dyslexia, processing disorders
3.)Behavioral/Emotional–ADD, Bipolarism, Oppositional Defiance Disorder
4.)Sensory impaired–Blind, visually impaired, deaf, limited hearing
