Today's guest Elizabeth Maynard has been a Special Education teacher for over 10 years.  She has a Masters Degree in Special Education and used her thesis to drive research as to why initial assessments within Special Education were not used appropriately. Currently Elizabeth is revisiting the topic as a research topic for her dissertation for her doctoral studies at Fielding Graduate University.
