What do we mean by a collaboration that blooms? We mean collaboration that is quicker, clearer and leads to better results. School districts have been moving to more inclusive education for students with disabilities. Special educators and general educators can get to know each other’s strengths, expectations, practices, and strategies. Collaboration leads to improved outcomes for everyone. So, how do you connect general and special educators? Give them the motivation and ability to solve problems using a common language they both understand. Feel free to show this presentation in your next meeting about collaboration.
