U Of NEVADA NEWS STORY to address challenging behavior of disabled children. Las Vegas and northeasternNevada, beginning as collaborate on tasks with specialneeds children, Olive http://www.unr.edu/nevadanews/vol3no6.html
Extractions: University of Nevada using $500,000 federal grant to address challenging behavior of disabled children Two College of Education professors at the University of Nevada, Reno will be using a $527,355 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to develop programs that help teachers and families decrease challenging behaviors in young children with disabilities. The new three-year research program, led by curriculum and instruction faculty Melissa Olive and Mary Ann Demchak, will provide teachers and families with training to properly aid youngsters who have special needs in the home and classroom. Many of these children have difficulty communicating and sometimes resort to biting, tantrum-throwing and hitting to get attention. The 1999 Nevada Legislature approved a bill requiring individuals to proactively intervene when children exhibit challenging behaviors. Programs funded by the grant will be available to help people comply with the law. The grant recognizes the growing reputation and influence of the College of Education's faculty in special education, said dean William Sparkman.

Extractions: POSTED: Jan. 4, 2003 9:52 p.m. Kendall is about to turn 3 years old. She lives in Rockaway, N.J., with her parents and 5-year-old brother. About six months ago, she was diagnosed with Rett syndrome, the same condition as afflicts my daughter Jessica. Her mom wrote us this week after our special section, Ethan's Story, was published. Looking through the eyes of 11-year-old Ethan Gray, the section was an in-depth report on how children with developmental disabilities and their families are cared for in North Carolina. Kendall's mom used words like "pilgrimage" and "journey" to describe the life her family now faces caring for their child. "Next month, we are going on a three-week family road trip. . Living life to the fullest. We don't like to waste time feeling sorry for our situation," she wrote. We published Ethan's Story as a way to help educate about such children in North Carolina and to shine a light on how the system works against them and their families. But we - even those of us who thought we were experts - learned a lot, too.
Extractions: Search Phone Search Keywords Calendar Maps Four-year-old Veronica was paying attention the day a speaker from the Fire Department talked to her Head Start class about what to do in case of fire. The firefighter carefully explained that if the children ever smelled smoke at night, they should crawl along the ground, wake an adult and call 911. Several weeks later, Veronica woke up and noticed smoke coming into her home from the garage. Recalling the firefighters words, she crawled along the floor into her grandfathers room. She awoke him and he started to jump up, but Veronica reminded him that they should crawl along the floor. They woke her mother and all three crawled to safety. Although the home was gutted by the fire, the family is alive and well thanks to Veronicas quick thinking. The Education Division has two major programs: Head Start and School-Based. The mission of Head Start is to promote self-sufficiency by providing quality, comprehensive child and family development services. The city of Phoenix serves about 3,000 low-income children each year. The program has about 450 employees, including both city employees and those who work for Head Starts 14 delegate agencies. Head Starts dedication to racial, ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity is reflected in its employees, who represent the rich heritage of Arizona. Head Start provides services in education, health, nutrition, parent involvement, social services and mental health. At least 10 percent of all openings are reserved for children with disabilities. Typically, at least 13 percent of the children in the program are disabled or have other special needs.

ERS Study Confirms Link Between Principal and School Success The widespread shortage of qualified principals has put a drain on the instructional leadership of the nation's schools, and is seriously affecting efforts in whole-school academic improvement, according to a new report conducted by the Educational Research Service (ERS) at the request of NAESP and NASSP. The report, The Principal, Keystone of a High-Achieving School: Attracting and Keeping the Leaders We Need, takes a close look at the shortage, suggests reasons behind it, and provides an overview of programs designed to address aspects of the shortage. The study identifies critical skills for qualified principal candidates, which include: being "educationally savvy," being innovative, having a clear focus and vision, being able to "sell the school," being a good manager, being interested in using and applying research to improve the school, possessing good conflict resolution and mediation skills, and being loving child advocates.

Extractions: Post-Crescent staff writer Freedom made the commitment to ensure all children equal access to a public education well before state and federal governments made it law in the early 1970s, he said. Yet, in times of tight budgets there is no denying the mounting cost of educating everyone from the blind, deaf and medically fragile to children with cognitive and emotional disabilities and speech delays. While Congress considers reauthorizing the 28-year-old law now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), area school systems are picking up the bulk of the bill for an ever-growing number of special-education children. Two dozen Fox Valley school districts spent more than $62 million in district, state and federal dollars in the 2000-01 school year to educate 7,597 students with disabilities, according to the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. In the coming school year, Freedom, with a total enrollment of 1,590, will spend $1.9 million of its $12.2 million operational budget educating 215 children with disabilities.
