These SEN blogs are those that I have visited often and found great ideas, positivity or inspiration for my own writing from. Due to the nature of the blogosphere there are likely to be many great SEN blogs I have missed, some great bloggers are reticent to promote their writing. If you know of a great special education focussed blog please add it to the comments.
