Special Needs material assit the facilitator in the practice of educating students with an Individualised Education Program to address their individual differences and needs. Ideally, this process involves the individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials, and accessible settings. These interventions are designed to help individuals with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and in their community, which may not be available if the student were only given access to a typical classroom education. We focus on material that assists these educational needs.

An investment in knowledge pays the best dividends.
Around here, we don't look backwards for very long... We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things because we're curious... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Don't just teach your kids to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything.
Education costs money, but then so does ignorance.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
He who opens a school door, closes a prison.
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.
Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.
Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.
