Reading Recovery as a Teacher Leader in South texas, Connecticut, and those children actually werenot disabled, but just peers, DiPaola (Office of special needs) said, special http://www.ri.net/sorico/reading_recovery.htm
Extractions: Reading Recovery Revived in Southern Rhode Island After a brief lapse in service, the Southern Rhode Island Collaborative has once again put the Reading Recovery intervention into the offerings to schools and school districts. Rhode Island has developed a consortium of sites to serve the State in the various regions. Because of the definite need in the area of reading and writing and the devotion of many advocates, the intervention has once again been reinstated in this area with hiring of a Teacher Leader in the Southern Rhode Island region. Patricia Starnes comes to us after working several years in Reading Recovery. She was trained by Billie Askew at Texas Woman's University and continued to work as a Teacher Leader in South Texas, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. While in Massachusetts, she worked directly under Irene Fountas at Lesley University and received further training as a trainer of Literacy Coordinators for the Literacy Collaborative (formerly ELLI). Starnes' bilingual proficiency led her to be involved in Descubreindo La Lectura, a Spanish reconstruction of Reading Recovery and the development of materials for use in Literacy Collaborative classrooms where children are learning to read in Spanish. Reading Recovery is a valuable service that schools provide for first grade children who are struggling in reading and writing. The intervention targets children before they have fallen into a cycle of failure and the majority of them become successful readers and writers. Actually, the program has two positive outcomes. The children who are unable to meet the average range of performance within 20 weeks of service are then clearly identified as needing Special Education services. This allows for better identification of the Special Education population and the children's programs can be more readily identified.

Special needs students can function in a regular education classroom as long as they are given the appropriate opportunities to apply themselves to the best of their abilities. It has been established by this empirical study that modifications are critical to the overall performance of the learning disabled; without these adaptations of lesson plans, homework and student/teacher interaction, the special needs student cannot fully comprehend what is expected. The writer addresses these needs based on an empirical study. Bibliography lists 1 source. Evaluating language disorders and learning disabilities is problematic for many educators, especially within the scope of changing student populations. As increasing ethnic diversity becomes a significant component of urban regions, the question of language performance, academic success, learning capabilities and language disorders have all some into play when evaluating the capacity of Hispanic individuals and differentiating between language disorder and language inability. This 3 page paper considers the scope of this problem, especially as it relates to application for special educators. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Extractions: The Improving America's Schools Act legislation passed in 1994 made it easier for schools located in high poverty areas to become and remain schoolwide programs. The purpose, scope, and intent of the schoolwide is comprehensive school-based reform focused on high standards for all children . When the schoolwide plan is integrated into the Campus Improvement Plan, there will be the opportunity for wholesale reform that moves beyond supplemental services and reconfigures an entire academic program to help every child meet the same challenging standards. To this end, this article can serve as a framework for schools and communities as they develop, rewrite and continue to assess their school reform efforts. The purpose of IASA includes encouraging educators and interested stakeholders to explore the common features of effective schoolwide projects and the Campus Improvement Plan. These features include:
