“Being and Teaching Special Needs”: a memoir offering personal tales and innovative methods to cope with special needs in the classroom. “Being and Teaching Special Needs” is the creation of published author, Gary David Sills. After working with children for forty-seven years, Gary Sills retired from teaching in the classroom. His days are now filled with sharing his storehouse of knowledge with others, spoiling his fourteen grandchildren, and volunteering in several areas at his local church. He is also busy writing church music and dramas, which has always been his dream.
“This book is autobiographical in nature, considerably more informal than a thesis or a research paper. My emotional handicaps struck the week before my senior year of high school. This was at a time when ‘Special Education’ was not established. Mental illness was not a comfortable topic, especially in a Christian home.” --Gary David Sills
In this book, author Gary David Sills takes the reader on a personal journey into his struggles, disappointments, and failures in higher education. In doing so, he shows readers how to overcame obstacles. By building skills with troubled teens, he was able to build on the strong education he received. This is the story of how he and his students dealt with challenges in the classroom beyond the research.
These are the memoirs of a handicapped student who was improperly diagnosed for many years. It is a valuable asset to parents wrestling with similar problems. Included in this memoir are many examples from his classroom. Modeled on successful responses to situations, Gary David Sills explains why his solutions were successful and reveals useful innovative methods other teachers can utilize to address the needs of handicap students.
