For this assignment, you will explore disability areas to raise awareness about the characteristics and educational needs of each area. The disability areas that will be explored are learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and autism.
For each disability area, find one source specific to the disability (i.e. children's book [list available in Table 1.1 in Chapter One of the text], journal article, multimedia resources, advocacy organization websites, professional organization websites/articles, scholarly websites, etc.) and describe what you learned about the disability and how that information will impact your teaching practices. Also, how will you specifically leverage your new awareness to influence the awareness of other colleagues or students in your school? Your paper should be two- to three- pages in length and must be APA formatted. You must also include at least three references, in addition to the course text.
