Extractions: "I'd be happy to provide you with a status report on IDEA. As you probably know, a compromise bill reauthorizing IDEA recently passed the Senate and is expected to be signed by the President soon. I was a supporter of this bill, S.717, which balances the interests of school administrators and individuals with disabilities." "As you may know, IDEA was originally enacted in 1975. At that time, more than one million children with disabilities received no public education and another 3.5 million were unable to receive appropriate programs within their schools. In 1975, the Federal courts recognized that children with disabilities had a Constitutional right to equal educational opportunity. IDEA was enacted to help States and communities meet their obligations. The program currently serves 5.4 million children. Efforts to reauthorize IDEA floundered last year, leading to the development of a bipartisan working group this year."

Extractions: Ten Steps to Successfully Homeschooling Children with Special Needs If you are a parent of a child with special needs and considering homeschooling, you undoubtedly have many questions and concerns. Youre not alone, but you probably know more about homeschooling than you realize. For example, youve spent the first five years of your childs life as his most important "teacher." In addition, if your child has been in public school, youve probably spent many evenings and weekends helping your child do homework. Guess what? Youve been homeschooling. My husband, Clint, and I have "been theredone that," and now were on our tenth year of homeschooling. Our sons Cj (22) and Shane (15) have been diagnosed with attention differences, and had we left them in public school, it is my opinion they would have inherited more labels as well. Has homeschooling been hard? Sometimes. Interesting? Who said living with children with special needs is boring? Can it be done? Yes! Homeschooling isnt a cure, and it is easier for some families than for others. However, homeschooling has rapidly become a respected alternative, especially for those children with special needs who are being pushed out of public schools. Its not my place to diagnose, label, or tell you how to homeschool your child with special needs. And the issues of medication and counseling belong within the scope of each familys decision-making process. However, with the one-on-one learning that parents provide in a homeschool environment, children with special needs can soar.
