COVID-19 distance learning is putting a strain on special education students. Middle school teacher Tera Lambert says it can be almost impossible at times. “They like that interaction. That one on one is what keeps them going,” Lambert said.

The California Department of Education has posted helpful guidelines for families online but not all parents have access to the internet.
