I see that many examples have been provided here.  I would like you to try this on your own.  Take each letter, and list as many words as you can think of.  Then see how many relate to SPED.  Then choose the ones that fit and seem to make sense...

Not very good, but to me it's important to address the idea that everyone has individual learning needs. We all learn differently, and if classroom teachers focus on that, inclusion will be more inclusive.

Or you can do whole phrases...

 

In a classroom of beautiful students

No one can make anyone else feel inferior;

Classrooms are safe havens for those who need it--

Loving environments for those who want to learn....

 

like that! :)

Acrostic poems are fun to write. Think about what point you want to get across in your poem, and then try to devise a way to say it in the acrostic pattern. You can use either one or two words per line, such as:

Including

not only

classes

laden with

usual

students...

Or you can write phrases or entires sentences:

Including all students

Not just the gifted

Classes designed to benefit....

My examples aren't the greatest, but they give you the idea. Take a look at the sites in the sources section for more help with acrostic poems.

Yet another set of answers to add to the pile:

Individualized

Non-threatening

Climate,

Learners

Use

Special

Ideas

Of

N-struction.

Granted, the last one may be a stretch, but that's what makes acrostics fun -- there are only a few set "rules." Hope this helps with your efforts.

Other words you may wish to swap out could include any ideas that have to do with a sense of warmth and security. Ed professors love it when students realize that their classroom is supposed to feel "safe" to students. So, if the above acrostic doesn't tickle your fancy, a few words of your own having to do with the above ideas should do the trick.
