Help for Teachers
  • Remedia Publications was founded in 1979 by two special education teachers with many years of classroom experience. They specialized in working with students whose skill levels were significantly below grade level. Both teachers felt there was great need for teaching materials that addressed the needs of this population, and so they began to develop educational materials. Today Remedia Publications publishes over 500 reproducible activity books.
