Last Issue’s Question:
My question is about working with a
special needs child. My son is 9 and
is in “third grade.” My daughter is 6
and entering first grade. My question is this: What do I do with the
other child (the non-special needs

walking right beside me and to continue on. He expects perseverance
. . . not perfection.

the other children when you have a
special needs child in the family.
Depending on the age of the child, I have
found several things to work to occupy
a non-special needs sibling, as well as a
special needs sibling, since I have two
special needs children and one without
way to entertain siblings while also
working on a variety of skills and unit
studies. Evan-Moor makes a great line
of workbooks (titled “Take It to Your
Seat Learning Centers”) in the areas of
phonics, science, math, geography, etc.
