I think it depends.

I have found --as an LD student, myself-- that students with differences, whether they be behavioral or educational, are very much aware of what they see as "inadequacies." I feel like if I can bring that out into the open and allow everyone to share their needs, then sometimes it can take the fear and shame out of special needs. When everyone becomes more aware of THEIRS, then we can work to support each other.

But I do agree--it depends on the child and the circumstance. I have had it as a class meeting, like I was letting the rest of the class in on a "secret" that they needed to help with, but I have also had it whole class. I usually do it whole class if the student has frequent outbursts because then the behavior is affecting the whole class publicly anyway.

But the goal is to level the playing field and to use the class as a source of support for their peer, classmate, and friend.
