Special Needs Resourceshand holding paper

Children with physical, developmental, and learning disabilities may be more susceptible to on- and offline risks, such as abduction, sexual exploitation, online predation, and cyberbullying. Many of the NetSmartz materials employ the same teaching methods used with special needs children, such as role-playing, rhyme, and repetition.
