I am a student teacher, special education substitute teacher, mother, and epileptic. I think it is a really good idea to offer simple handouts to the students that only concentrate on only what they need to know. Depending on the disablility, our Sp.Ed. Teacher recommends that the teachers highlight important terms in the text books before assigning them to these students. It may seem like you are doing the work for them, but you are really just doing what you are supposed to do, and that is helping them suceed. These students have enough to cope with without being forced to do what they are not capable of. The point is to get them to love learning not discourage them from it. Remember also to offer opportunities for all types of learners (audio, visual, and tactile). I am sure you are a wonderful teacher because you care enough to find out what it will take to help you students reach their potential.
