Every special needs classroom should be equipped with certain essentials. Say thank you to your special ed teacher the right way. Whether you're the parent of a child with special needs looking for a teacher appreciation gift or you're simply looking for something useful to give to a friend or family member who’s only starting out, you'll find something here.
You'll notice that many of our practical teacher gifts focus on time. That's because time is a concept that's best visualized. Picturing the passage of time helps very young and special needs children transition from one activity to another more easily. This also teaches concepts such as "how much longer?" and helps children stay on task. Timers make great gifts for elementary school teachers, moms, nannies and more.
