    • SPECIAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS W I T H S A M E - S E X PA R E N T S INTRODUCTION Children who come from diverse family backgrounds, including children with same-sex Parents, have the same needs as other children. However, sometimes their family circumstances and the community‟s perception about them, make them feel different than other students. Therefore, they have some needs that must be met. As a teacher, it is your responsibility to ensure that those special needs are understood and met. K-12 EDUCATION PRACTICES & ISSUES - DR PATRICIA FIORIELLO
