The students in my kindergarten and first grade non-categorical special education classroom come to us from all over the world. Their families are from India, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Bolivia, Peru, El Salvador, as well as other countries. They are learning to speak English while at the same time they are learning to navigate the world with their disability. Although they have autism, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, or learning disabilities the students in my class love learning. They are hard workers who love listening to books and telling stories. Although they have difficulty re-telling a story orally this year we discovered that they can show us that they understand the story if we give them props. Even the children who are non-verbal are able to retell stories by moving the toy bears and dolls around the house to show the order of events from a familiar story.
