Finding earlier posts on SET
Are you looking for something you read previously? Is there a topic you'd like to explore?
Long-time readers of Special Education Today have seen posts about autism, aphorisms, behavior problems (and management), causes, Direct Instruction, dyslexia, evaluations, Fridays (yep, photos!), government activities…sheesh, lots of topics. Too many to list, especially when one considers that pretty much each of the 700+ posts that have appeared on SET as of mid-September 2023 probably can be construed to address more than one topic.
In fact, there are probably too many posts (let alone topics) to remember in the posts over the course of the first 3+ years. Indeed, I find myself thinking about writing about some topic, and then wondering if I haven’t already written a post about the topic.
Well, to the rescue: If you haven’t already discovered it on your own, there is a search mechanism that allows one to locate previous posts. It’s a simple search engine. Users can search for just about any term in all the posts for SET.
At the foot of each post there is a list of archival posts. One can page through them one by one…or one can search the entire corpus.
Note that searches are not confined to key terms (“tags,” “index terms,” or etc. ). Users can search on just about any word that might have been used in any post. The search engine will return a list of all posts containing the word for which you search. (I don’t recommend searching on “I” or “and.”)1
Give it a whirl!
Also note that paid subscribers will have immediate access to all the posts in the archive. New subscribers will have to jump through a hoop or two to get temporary complimentary access to the archived posts. (It may be possible for someone to use the temporary access feature repeatedly…sort of generating a “paid” subscription for “free,” but I haven’t tested this possibility—sigh.)
