Everyone understands the importance of motivation when we’re working with students with complex needs.

    I am unable to open any of the “Halloween” cause and effect activities. I have a MAC. Are there any special instructions for MAC users?

    Thank you,

    Unfortunately, the activities are Windows PC only. Sorry I should have made that clearer in my post.
