Specially Educated (Black and White) is the black and white version, of the narrative of the interactions of one family with the public special education system. As different road blocks appear, Mama Bear navigates new routes to teaching, and develops creative insights into her son Bubba's nonspecific, specific learning disability. Mama Bear, Bubba and Ex all get specially educated. The book weaves through eighteen years and a true story that is at times humorous, at times ridiculous, and at times outrageously tragic. As Bubba moves through elementary school and into middle school, it becomes more and more evident that the school district is lax in providing the special education services they agreed to provide. They declare that ‘he will never’ and that ‘he can’t’. Frustration breeds creativity and Mama Bear teaches her son when the school district refuses. Armed with hope, she searches out appropriate and effective tutoring that combined with Bubba’s desire to progress, forge a path to a better education. And she eventually plots out and executes a systematic strategy to extract reimbursement for tutoring. Included in the book is a step-by-step method for teaching cursive to a verbal learner; there are tips for the use of direct instruction methods for teaching math, writing, word problems and even driving; there is a comprehensive discussion on data, measurements and making charts; and don’t miss Operation Bury Them in Paperwork for dealing with the public special education system. Specially Educated is about confronting ‘Never’, about not giving up hope, and about finding creative ways to see if ‘he can’.
