Unless you are a special education teacher, or are familiar with someone who does this work, you probably have no idea of their extraordinary skills.
Special education teacher, Sophie Murphy, recently handled an inflight emergency that was preventing a plane from landing in Melbourne. What she did to persuade a child with Down Syndrome to get up off the cabin floor and strap into his seat so the plane could land would seem remarkable to most people.
But for Sophie, a teacher with two decades of experience, it was just what special education teachers are trained to do.
Read what she did in this Sydney Morning Herald report.
