Empowering Special Needs Education, Inspiring Change.
Welcome to AMYGDALA, where we are dedicated to supporting and advocating for children and young adults with special educational needs.
I created this magazine for many reasons, but mostly because there was no professional publication for our profession. Now we have a place where every SNA can not only contribute to monthly editions but can also find helpful information about Special Education. AMYGDALA is created by an SNA for SNAs. The magazine has many benefits, starting from exploring all aspects of special education through professional and personal development. As I am passionate about special education and inclusion, I would like to share my own knowledge and experience with other important experts, to provide the best possible solutions for SNAs working with children with additional needs. This magazine will show SNAs how they can help children overcome barriers in education. AMYGDALA shares resources, strategies, knowledge and provides practical information.
The purpose of this magazine is to provide a platform for sharing knowledge and resources among those working with individuals with special needs. Through this publication, I hope to create a community of professionals who are better equipped to provide quality care and support to those with additional needs. This magazine will feature articles written by experts in the field, advice from experienced professionals, profiles of successful special needs assistants, interviews with families of those with special needs, news on the latest advances in the field, and updates on government and industry regulations. I believe that by connecting and educating those working with students with special needs, we can create a better future for those with disabilities.
AMYGDALA provides articles for professional development but also for personal development like:
I hope you will enjoy reading the magazine as I put my heart and soul into this magazine! The first edition is dedicated to all children I have worked with since I came to Ireland (2008).
