reply: EC in the classroom

I also find it concerning that many teachers do not have training on how to modify instruction for EC students, including ASD, in the classroom. I think that it would be very helpful if teachers were required to attend some type of workshops or professional development before having EC students placed in their class. I recently worked with a second grade teacher wh was the only second grade teacher at her school who was also certified to teach EC. It seemed like almost every EC student had been placed in her classroom. She had 26 students and almost half of them were classified as EC. I think that if all teachers had professional training in this area, it would help to balance classrooms.
