Design and Technology in Special Education

    Does anybody have any design and technology projects which have been tried and tested in special education, and which are ultimately really fun?. I have found that going down the more mainstream route and following the 'design process' has no value for my students and visualizing/ planning is very hard for them, they thrive much better with just getting stuck in. I am struggling to create a SOW which allows this to happen but does not hinder them from accessing the range of equipment, tools, machinery that would be used in mainstream.

    On my website at http://www.specialeducationalneeds.com/home/inclusion I provide access to external resources and publications in each of the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum, including Design and Technology. Just follow the "Design and Technology" link next to the subheading "Special Educational Needs" under the heading "Meeting Additional Needs". A direct link to the folder is https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw7z_4bLjOOEZXlWM0Uzb2FXaFU. I can't guarantee "fun", but you may find something interesting or useful among the ten documents there.

    From so many websites, you can get resources for your teaching help in school. I know such two site , Homework joy and Homework minutes. They are popular due to their study materials among students. You can get help from there.
