Inaccessible This chart is your guide to the accessibility levels of Arkansas State Parks facilities. All new park facilities offer barrier-free access, while a wide variety of older facilities that have attracted visitors over the decades have been retrofitted to offer barrier-free access. Work is in progress to improve accessibility levels at more facilities throughout the parks system. Some facilities, however, due to the natural terrain in which they're located, are deemed inaccessible or impossible to access even with assistance. This information is intended to guide visitors to those park facilities that will best meet their individual needs. All park visitors are urged to take personal limitations into consideration when utilizing any Arkansas State Park facility. If you have specific questions about any state park or museum, park staff are available to answer your questions and provide any details you may require. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in finding the park facilities that will make your visit to an Arkansas state park the most enjoyable experience it can be. You're always welcome to phone or e-mail the individual parks and museums for details. Those phone numbers and e-mail addresses are located under each park listing. You're also invited to call the State Park Director's office in Little Rock at 1-888-AT-PARKS (V/TT).

Too Young to Die More of this Feature
Charles P. Ewing, Ph.D., a nationally known authority, expert witness and author of "Kids Who Kill," said that the shooter had told friends of his plans before he took the weapon to school, opened fire and began the bloody rampage."
Join the Discussion "I don't have a solution to the big picture of teenage violence but I do feel this particular act could have been prevented IF someone had taken this kid seriously. With all the school shootings over the last several years, why no one believed him is beyond me. Having a gun should never be a joking matter, and if someone tells you they are taking a gun to school (or anywhere for that matter), TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!!!

"It is such a tragedy. And again, someone heard the warning signs, but did nothing because they believed the child when he said, he was just kidding. Something this serious should have been reported to the parents or school. Another thing I keep hearing is the parents should be accountable for this kids behavior. We are good parents here, we have done all we can to help our damaged kids, but it scares me that we would be accountable to the same punishment for something my kid would choose to do."

She answered their questions, from how to obtain a driver's license to where to buy ethnic foods and where to take a sick child.

During her tenure with the National Rapid Response Corps, Argentina served long hours with numerous families whose homes and lives were ravaged by natural disasters. But her greatest accomplishments came in volunteer recruitment. The Miami Red Cross had a critical need for health care and mental health professionals trained in disaster response. Argentina put together a disaster response plan and recruited team members, doubling the number of nurses and mental health professionals available to assist with disasters.

Jenkins, Associate Editor, OF NOTE, a Brigham Young University Publication, Issue-July 1990 In small pockets around the United States and the United Kingdom, reading scores are making astounding gains thanks to a program developed by a BYU professor. Considered somewhat of a maverick, Dr. Grant Von Harrison realized 14 years ago-long before "holistic" learning was in voguethat simply dividing children into ability groups and then assigning them to basal readers was not working. "Thirty years ago the assumption was made that children's needs would better met by ability grouping," says Harrison, a professor of instructional science, as well as education. "But research conducted over the past 15 years has consistently demonstrated that the assumed benefits are not being realized and that some students are actually penalized." Based upon these observations and the research he had conducted as an instructional scientist, Harrison developed a whole new method of teaching- one that did away with ability grouping and basal readers as the sole source of reading material.

    Link Between MMR Shots and Autism Disputed A theory that children develop autism as a result of having had measles-mumps-rubella vaccination is generating concern in both lay and medical communities, according to researchers who set out to determine to determine if there is any connection. First floated in Great Britain in the late 1990s by a medical investigative group, the theory holds that the combined vaccine given in early infancy may cause the developmental condition known as autism, which normally surfaces when children are 18 to 19 months of age, shortly after they have completed their vaccinations. Because autism is so difficult a condition for parents to accept, and because it is incompletely understood by medical practitioners, theories about its cause have been wide-ranging, from coldness in mothers to failure of parts of the brain to develop during pregnancy. In light of the serious implications for vaccine practice of the latest theory, a group of researchers in the California Department of Health reviewed the immunization coverage rates of children born between 1980 and 1994 who were enrolled in California kindergartens, to determine the age at which they first received MMR vaccinations. Those data were then compared with autism caseloads of children born in the same years who were enrolled in the California Department of Developmental Services regional service center system. They found that although there were only modest increases in the rates of immunization during those years, the numbers of autism cases increased markedly. This led the researchers to conclude that the difference is so wide that it's hard to see any connection.

    Rivier student develops kit for using ASL in class
    From: Nashua Telegraph, NH - 31 Dec 2002 By LYNN TRYBA, Telegraph Staff
    NASHUA – Katie Hanna couldn’t always get through to her daughter, Mary, while the girl was upset when she was younger. Her attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and related language delays sometimes stood in the way of effective communication. But Hanna eventually discovered a way to reach her daughter at such times. When Mary became so frustrated that she couldn’t listen, Hanna would stop talking. Having regained her daughter’s attention, Hanna would use American Sign Language. Both she and Mary had learned basic signs to help them communicate with a friend’s hearing-impaired son. The shift from verbal to physical language forced Mary to stop and look at what her mother was doing. In this way, Mary was better able to “hear” what was being said. “When she was younger, sign language helped bridge the gap,” Hanna said. “It helped her calm down and communicate.” Based on such successful experiences with her daughter, who is now 8, and her friend’s son, Hanna was moved to create a sign language kit to help fellow education majors at Rivier College learn how to integrate ASL into classroom settings.
