Special Education Department Update

October 2020

Introduction

Welcome to the Special Education Department monthly newsletter! The department will send out a monthly email that will include content on family resources, community events, family trainings, family involvement, information from inside the classrooms, and information on specific disabilities.

Parent & Family Involvement

Albert Einstein Academy’s Special Education Department is looking to form their 2020-2021 parent committee! As part of this committee, parents will be collaborating with our Special Education Team, receiving support from other parents, and will have opportunities to attend trainings to extend their knowledge and resources with regards to their child’s education or diagnosis. If you are interested in being apart of this committee, please reach out to Mrs. Lemons (rebecca.lemons@aeaohio.org) or Mrs. Costanzo (kristen.costanzo@aeaohio.org).

The kindergarten students are writing the letter that matches the keyword and sound. Connecting the sound to symbols is an essential part of learning to read and write. This activity builds the students' knowledge of the sounds represented by the letters of the alphabet and the letters used to represent the sounds.
