From left to right: On the table: Eddy Franklin, Joanne Spinoza, and David Franklin (autism). On the floor: Nicholas Murphy (hemophilia) and Renaldo Rodriguez (visually impaired). Data collected by the U.S. Bureau of the Census suggest that as many as 20 percent of the American population live with some level of disability and as many as 10 percent have a severe disability. These Americans rely on libraries to provide a range of materials and services to help them meet their information needs. Traditional offerings such as adaptive technology, large print books, books on tape, and books-by-mail are a staple at many libraries. Other libraries have thoughtful programs to help the disabled and the mentally handicapped overcome more basic challenges of self-esteem and integration into everyday society.

Extractions: Chairman Burton and Members of the Committee: Thank you for the opportunity to speak with you about the critical issue of special education. My name is Ed Amundson and I have served as the Chair of the National Education Associations (NEA) Caucus for Educators of Exceptional Children for seven years. I speak to you today not only in this capacity, but as a teacher with years of hands-on classroom experience with special needs students. I have taught for over 20 years in Californias Sacramento City Unified School system, working with learning disabled students in reading, English, and government studies. I previously worked with severely disabled students in San Mateo County. I have a Masters degree in special education, and am credentialed in both general and special education. The members of the National Education Association like all of my colleagues throughout my nearly 30 years of teaching are committed to providing the best possible education to all students, including those with disabilities. NEA has long supported the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) a good law that holds a lot of promise. Unfortunately, lack of information, inadequate funding, and a misplaced emphasis on paperwork rather than on teaching have created onerous burdens for educators and have jeopardized the education provided all students.
