As more and more children are diagnosed with autism and other special needs, special education teachers are receiving training in updated instruction methods. Patty Steffens, an early childhood and educational specialist explains, "As researchers learn more about various disorders, teachers must develop and hone new techniques to reach their pupils and get the most out of their new understanding of the conditions.” New techniques include altering lights used in special education classrooms, helping children focus, and working with families to understand their child’s developmental issues. The Family Resource Center in Pittsburgh, KS recently received a grant to purchase sensory specific lighting and physical education aids such as swings, floor mats and toys. One of their future goals is to have the resources to work with families in their own household environment.
