Our products all came from necessity. Working with Special Education students is hard. All of my planning and making activities had to be done at home. So, when students in my Life Skills class began to be tested with academic tasks, in 2007, it was very hard to understand. In 2009 I began selling STAAR-ALT Helpers to give teachers the materials to do the tasks on the testing. In 2011, when Texas changed to STAAR Alternate testing, I began to make helpers to explain the tasks needed at all levels for teachers. When the test changed, so did I. When we retired, I spent a year putting together SpEd Helper. Teachers were asking, "Where do I start?". So,I spent the last two years creating SpEd Helper Aligned. We have several materials made just for you. We want you to be successful!
