Education is an important part of obtaining a bright and healthy future. When children are struggling to keep up with their peers, it may be necessary to consider special needs education. In many cases, special needs education is provided when children are facing learning disorders or mental health concerns that may prevent them from learning in a normal classroom environment. The "Leading Edge" show, with Jimmy Johnson, focuses a new segment on individuals and organizations that are changing lives and making a difference in Special Needs Education.

The primary benefits of special needs education is the one-on-one attention that students receive. The classes are smaller and the staff is trained to handle a variety of special needs that may exist. A teacher and an aide are usually available to assist students with their physical or mental health needs so that they can focus on learning at their own pace.

When your child enters a special needs classroom, you may worry about their social health. Although the classes are smaller than average, students are still encouraged to interact and work together to accomplish tasks. The key difference is that their physical health or the challenges that they face are considered when teachers assign tasks.

Host Jimmy Johnson will explore the special needs education classroom in the "Leading Edge." During the series, you will learn about the benefits and the particular challenges that are facing the special needs classroom.

"Leading Edge" is a public broadcast that is not distributed by PBS. You can learn more about the special needs series or any other series at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com.
