You will see a special education teacher, Megan Moreno, who walks us through some of the activities and accommodations that she uses in her classroom. In the video you will also see three different children. A third-grade student diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder discuss school activities. There are two typically developing children from the special education preschool program who discuss being a peer mentor.
