Special education teacher Rachelle Dixson works with 5-year-old patient and student Iker Navarro on a projected whiteboard Friday as fellow patents and students Dulce Aguilar-Solano, 5, at left, and Jacqueline Silva, 6, watch from wheelchairs at a hospital classroom that is part of a joint program between Shriners Hospitals for Children Northern California and the Sacramento City Unified School District. The program teaches students in kindergarten through 12th grade on the second floor of the hospital in Sacramento. The Shriners classroom exists to provide regular education for children even during treatment and recovery, and to help them cope with any changes in their physical and mental abilities. In a school setting, that can mean learning to navigate a wheelchair and other assistive technology or interacting with peers.
