Special Education

Reading broadens the mind and allows you to go on wonderful journeys. There is no required reading from the special education department, but we would like to encourage you to read anytime you have a chance. Read magazines, the newspaper, roadside signs or pick up a chapter book that will take you on a wonderful adventure.

Enjoy your summer.
