      I read this article earlier today: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/23/education/learning/coronavirus-teachers-special-needs-students.html

      As an instructional coach, I think a lot of my teachers would say they have similar feelings to the ones described in this article. Are there any teachers on here who feel similar or different? What are some tools or resources you have used to help you get through this time?

      Thanks for posting this. We are getting so many desperate calls from special educators who are at their wits end. We try to give them as much support as possible, but trying to engage kids by computer is so hard.

        This is so sad. I have a dear friend who is a special ed classroom aide and she is beside herself trying to help her kids (and parents) online. It is so so hard
