Disaster Preparedness for People With Disabilities (PDF) Establish a Personal Support Network
A personal support network is made up of individuals who will check with you in an emergency to ensure you are O.K. and to give assistance if needed. This network can consist of friends, roommates, family members, relatives, personal attendants, co-workers and neighbors. Some people rely on personal assistance services (attendants). This type of assistance may not be available after a major quake. Therefore it is vital that your personal support network consist of different people than those who are your personal attendants. If you employ a personal attendant or use the services of a home health agency or other type of in-home service, discuss with these people a plan for what you will do in case of an emergency. How will you get along in an emergency for as long as 7 days? A critical element to consider in your emergency planning is the establishment of a personal support network. Even if you do not use a personal attendant, it is important to consider having a personal support network to assist you in coping with an emergency. Do not depend on any one person.

    Social Skills Groups for Special Needs Students
    Denver Public Schools PURPOSE: Children who have special needs often experience isolation as a result of their disability. They face greater challenges in the area of social skills for many reasons including: self contained classes, missed or misinterpreted peer communications, and delays in language development. Even with partial mainstreaming, social circles are already formed, circles of friendship which the special needs child may find difficult to enter. Significantly disabled or special needs children are often seen by teachers and peers as “coming into” the regular education class as an “outsider,” as opposed to children with minor disabilities who “belong” in the class and “go out” for additional help or therapy. The purpose of the group is to facilitate the development of social skills including: making friends, being a friend, turn-taking, asking for help, initiating conversation, joining social groups, appropriate expression of feelings, recognizing and choosing appropriate behaviors, and “reading” other people These skills are interwoven with pragmatic language skills. TARGET GROUP: Our initial groups focused on hard of hearing children who had been identified with a mild, moderate, or profound hearing loss and placed in a self contained classrooms The curriculum we developed soon proved useful with students who had other disabilities, including ADHD, emotional disabilities, and developmental delays. Reverse mainstreaming was introduced so students in the mainstream classroom, with no identified disability were included also. No students with severe conduct problems or thought disorders were included.

    Charter Schools and Students with Disabilities: Review of Existing Data - November 1998
    Annotated Bibliography on Charter Schools and Special Education
    American Federation of Teachers. (1996). Charter school laws: Do they measure up? Washington, DC: Author.
      Based on the AFT criteria for effective charter legislation, this report analyzes the legislation in 25 states. These criteria reflect accessibility to all students, high academic standards, standardized methods for assessing student performance, collective bargaining agreements for staff, certification of teachers, approval of local school districts, and reporting requirements. None of the state laws met all of the criteria. Although special education was not identified as a particular point of analysis, it was addressed in several of the criteria. For example, effective legislation should start with explicit language that ensures participation of all public school students. Schools that target students on the basis of academic or athletic ability are risking discrimination against students with disabilities. Likewise, schools that recruit "at-risk" students are not inclusive if the definition of "at-risk" is vague. Strategies for assessing student performance need to be adapted to reflect the unique learning styles and curricular needs of students with disabilities. School reporting should include student demographics that reflect the special needs of its students.

    9. Myth #6 : Charter Schools Promote Equity
    This is true in colorado, where only a few of approximately 7,000 enrolled studentswere special education students were meeting the needs of disabled children
    Myth #6 : Charter schools promote equity
    Reality: There is growing evidence that charter schools promote inequity everywhere they have appeared. Despite their genesis in the political Right, charter school advocates have appropriated the language of the Left: "[The affluent] do not need charter schools. The poor and the disadvantaged, however, have never had such choices. It is they and their children in poor schools and programs who need charter schools." (Freedman, 1996, p. 34) Yet scratch the surface, and it becomes clear that for some proponents of charter schools and other schools of choice, equity is the problem, not the goal. According to John Chubb, the problem with public schools is that they " ‘must take whoever walks in the door.’ " (Kozol, 1993, p. 18) Who Chooses? Who Loses? Culture, Institutions, and the Unequal Effects of School Choice , the available empirical research concludes that "increasing educational choice is likely to increase separation of students by race, social class, and cultural background." (p. 189) The authors found this to be true even when choice programs are designed specifically to reduce inequities (Henig, 1996; Lee, Croninger & Smith, 1996; Martinez, Godwin & Kemerer, 1996; Waterman & Murnane, 1992; Wells, 1996; Witte, 1996) – suggesting that good intentions cannot overcome the gravitational forces of competition applied to schools.

    20. Colorado Education Reform | Resources For Teachers
    was to convene A colorado Conversation with is specifically designed to account fortheir special needs. Less severely disabled students take the regular CSAP.
    1. Who developed the CSAP and the model content standards? The CSAP and standards were written in the early to mid-1990s by Colorado educators after meetings across the state were held with teachers, parents, and community members. CSAP assesses how well a child performs on Colorado's academic content standards, which spell out what a child should know and be able to accomplish at each grade level. The best and brightest Colorado teachers - urban, suburban, and rural - were brought together to develop these standards and assessments. 2. How does the Governor support teachers? The first thing Governor Bill Owens did in education was to convene A Colorado Conversation with Educational Leaders on Teacher Quality . This began the discussion on how to better serve teachers, improve teacher quality and professional development and discover what resources are needed for teachers to do their job to the best of their abilities. The Governor's other initiatives for teachers include:
    • $2 million annually in state funding for the Teacher Professional Development Grants - the first time in history state dollars are directly allocated for teacher professional development. These funds assist schools to provide training for teachers to upgrade their skills.
