Kidzone is a site for students diagnosed with learning disabilities who want to showcase their original artwork and writings. This site also features a bilbliography, a bulletin board, and several interactive activities.

Not only is this a tremendous site for kids with learning disabilities, it is a great teaching tool for people in training to become teachers - both special education and general education teachers. In the "Art Gallery" and "KidZone Magazine" sections, samples of work done by kids with learning disabilities can be viewed. Many times teachers in training have no idea what typical work from this population might look like. This can be very eye-opening! In "Listen Up!," you can listen to questions about IEP meetings being explained in very straightforward language. "Read Up!" and "Speak Up!" are excellent repositories of materials for new teachers to share with their young students. Finally, "Interact Up!" has 2 links which my teachers have found very useful. There is a simulation of what some individuals with learning disabilities see when they read. You can then click on another link to see the actual reading sample. The second item is a quiz about famous people who have learning disabilities. Students always feel better about themselves when they learn that Winston Churchill and Tom Cruise also had/have learning disabilities. Both of the activities are very effective when used with a general education audience.
The "Listen Up!" section of this site requires RealPlayer.
