8  Inconsistent Educational Skill Sets ◦ “one teacher did an excellent job on the IEP but homeroom teacher did not.” ◦ “discrepancies in skills between teacher and their abilities to write effective IEP’s”

9  Curriculum /Classroom ◦ “spreading resources to all kids in classroom with special needs” ◦ “expanding on extracurricular opportunities...such as gymnastics.”  Socialization/ Peer Mentoring ◦ “self confidence build up” ◦ “students celebrating success”  Communication ◦ “better communication to get to know individual students strengths”
