In this episode, we look into what challenges special education teachers have faced in the past semester with the switch to online platforms. Merve Dorak, special education teacher on Long Island joined us today to discuss her personal experience. Ms. Dorak works with middle school students who have autism and are trying to complete IEP goals. IEP goals are individualized education plans for students with autism. Educators say they feel more worried, depleted, and, at times, more helpless than ever as they try to teach their students — many of whom need intensive one-on-one guidance — through their screens. However, they have quickly adapted to online teaching and work towards reaching their students as much as possible.
