When we present the Teacher Toolbox on how to adapt a classroom for children with special needs, we provide resources for behavior management plans, literacy tools, and the materials to create everything in your classroom. 

Our approach is to use the latest technology and expert guidance to create innovative and usable solutions.

While based in North Carolina and Florida, approximately half of our users are from outside of the U.S.  Thousands of sites link to us and we can be easily found on most search engines using topics such as ‘picture cards’, ‘facial expressions’, and ‘job tips’.  We hope you find our resources helpful and pass on our link to others.
