Extractions: The Obstacle to Good Parenting Drs. Elliott and Smith bring a fresh and unique awareness to the realm of parenting. One that examines how parents fall into old patterns, despite the fact that they strive to parent at an optimum level. Families are not admonished for their loving and good intentions in this book, they are simply redirected to a new level of understanding themselves. "The Parenting Puzzle is at work whenever you do any of the following:"
Extractions: Keeping the Doors Wide Open by Kerry A. White t's all but impossible for an accountability system to say how well every student in every school is faring. In practice, experts say, many children with disabilities and those with limited English skills sit out state tests or stay at home on testing daydespite federal laws requiring their inclusion in large-scale assessments. The omissions have been a problem for years, and the problem is growing worse as schools feel increased pressure to win rewards or avoid sanctions based on test scores. Exempting disabled and limited-English-proficient students from assessmentsand thereby from accountability systemsmakes it difficult to gauge whether the billions of dollars spent each year on special education and language programs are well spent. "Educators, parents, and policymakers don't have the information needed to determine whether [those] students are meeting academic standards," says Martha L. Thurlow, the associate director of the National Center on Educational Outcomes, or NCEO, at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. "It's critical that all students be included when judgments are being made" based on test scores. But some relatively new federal mandates are slowly prompting change. Revisions in 1997 to the main federal special education law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the 1994 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act are closing the loopholes that have kept special-needs students away from their desks at test time. "States are making big strides in alleviating the problem," Thurlow says.

Extractions: These case studies of success were published two to four years following the treatment in 1989. ( Journal of Accelerative Learning and Teaching , Summer 1989, 14, 1, 113-141) These summaries have been updated to reveal the current status of each participant. Fifteen-Day (24-hours of intensive training) classes were taught in small homogeneous groupings by age and ability, according to their pre-course assessments. Various classes included both high and low academic achievers, and various Special Needs populations of Gifted and Talented, Learning Disabled, Dyslexic, and Developmentally Disabled. This data set of forty students had longitudinal maintenance gains. They all attended college and are successfully employed. The following cases reviewed within in each Special Needs category, with tests that were routinely administered in the early 1980's.

Extractions: Raising a disabled child is never easy. But some things can make it even harder than it has to be. Being a military family is one of them. Take Tyler, the 5-year-old son of Navy Petty Officer Second Class John Denman and his wife, Georgina. Brain damage at birth left Tyler prone to seizures and unable to speak. But "he will coo, and he will cry, and he will smile," said his mother, and "he responds wonderfully to music." Tyler breathes through a tube that must be carefully suctioned several times an hour, to prevent his saliva from choking him or breeding infection. Although Tricare, the health insurance program for service members' families, covers much of Tyler's care, his mother noted that "in April of 1998, Tricare pulled Tyler's nursing [care]. It has never been reinstated." So Georgina has learned to do much of the care herself, and gets help from nurses paid by California's Medi-Cal program. More than 70,000 military families have a disabled child or dependent who requires special care or schooling. Their ailments range from relatively minor learning disabilities to severe physical impairments such as Tyler's. Yet the system created to help them has disabilities of its own.
