My name is Haley and I am an elementary education major at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I am currently in a special education class. Our assignment is to find a parent and ask them a few questions if they do not mind. What are the effects of having a child with a disability on the family? How cooperative have teachers been with you and your child? I would appreciate greatly any information anyone has to offer. I am learning so much and I feel your responses could help me learn much more.
