HSLDA Media Release September 4, 1997 Children With Learning Disabilities Do Better in Home Schools than in Special Needs Programs at Public Schools For immediate release September 4, 1997 Contact: Rich Jefferson (540) 338-8663 or Children with learning disabilities do as well, if not better, in home schools than in public schools according to researcher and public school psychologist Dr. Steven F. Duvall from Kansas. The results of his study were published by the a scholarly journal, in the May 1997 issue. The May issue of the journal was not published until the end of August. Dr. Duvall, along with contributing authors Drs. D. Lawrence Ward, Joseph C. Delquadri, and Charles R. Greenwood, found that because of the one-on-one student teacher ratio provided in a home school setting, learning disabled children made more academic progress than their public school counterparts. In the study Dr. Duvall examined eight elementary and two junior high students with learning disabilities in home schools and public school special education programs during the 1993-1994 school year.

Teaching for Inclusion: Curricular Adaptations for (Learning Disabled) Students in Mainstream Schools 1999 Klingenstein Project Prof. Pearl Rock Kane Submitted by Kara Baronian April 28, 1999 TEACHING FOR INCLUSION As a high school English teacher at The Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School, a small pre-K-12 Independent school in Manhattan, I have been privileged to work with a wide diversity of students. For me, meeting this challenge has meant continuously reworking the English curriculum to ensure that it reflects all of my students. In recent years, as we have become more aware of differences in learning styles, I have come to understand that learning differences are just another type of diversity represented in my classroom. While recognizing and appreciating this, I also have been struggling to find effective ways of teaching to the range of abilities I have found in each class. Slowly it has become clear to me that adapting the curriculum also must mean finding ways to adapt my teaching style, otherwise I am not being responsive to the true diversity of my students. Defining the Issues In thinking about the classroom experience of students with LD, I ask you to imagine the following scenario: You are a student with an upcoming science test. In order to succeed, you need to know several key formulas that were taught in class and were in your text. What do you do? For most students, the answer is to study your notes and review the underlined parts of your book; distill the important information into flashcards or other abbreviated notes; memorize the formulas by rehearsal or devising mnemonics.

Special Education Inclusion: (Part 2)
Making It Work "Successful inclusive classrooms accommodate children with a wide range of intellectual and emotional developments, learning styles, and capabilities," said Kean University special education professor Art Shapiro. Today, in part 2 of "Special Education Inclusion: Making It Work," Education World writer Wesley Sharpe, Ed.D., examines ways of organizing inclusive classes and the demands inclusion places on teachers. Included: Three models of successful inclusion!
Three Models For Successful Inclusion Consultant model.
This model works best in schools with a low incidence of special-needs children and a small overall enrollment.

15. Give Your Special Child The Gift Of Tomorrow
KIC gives every disabled child in kansas the possibility and practical informationthat can make you an effective advocate for your special needs child.
GIVE YOUR SPECIAL CHILD THE GIFT OF TOMORROW Editorial by Gwyn K. Iken Is your child with special needs receiving the education to which he is entitled? Are the goals in your child’s IEP specific to your child? Are all your child’s teachers fully implementing every aspect of the IEP? Are all services listed in the IEP being provided? Do you look forward to your child’s IEP meetings because you enjoy being treated with respect and as an equal participant when IEP decisions are made? Do you feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about your next meeting? If you answered “no” to any one of these questions, you have come to the right place. Becoming a member of Kansans for IDEA Compliance (KIC) can help you change those “no” answers into “yes” answers. Why become a member of KIC ? Why fill out that membership form? KIC is not just another special education website. It is a life preserver for all parents of children with special needs who are drowning in the sea of ignorance, arrogance, and illegal behaviors that characterize Special Education in the state of Kansas.

Text Menu Last Updated: Article of Interest - Special Education Special Ed Gender Gap Stirs Worry Some say boys singled out for wrong reasons. by Anand Vaishnav, Globe Staff and Bill Dedman, Boston Globe Correspondent, The Boston Glove, Public schools in Massachusetts and nationwide place twice as many boys as girls in special education, a gender gap that extends from the biggest cities to the toniest suburbs to the tiniest towns, according to a Globe analysis of state and federal data. But the size of the gender disparity in special education is not uniform from district to district. For example, for children diagnosed as emotionally disturbed, one special-education category, boys make up 90 percent of emotionally disturbed students in Kansas City, but only 55 percent in Milwaukee. The more subjective the diagnosis of the student, the wider the gender gap, records show. In Massachusetts schools, boys are slightly more likely than girls to be identified with hearing or vision problems, and 11/2 times as likely to be retarded. But boys are twice as likely to be labeled with a learning disability, and more than three times as likely to be called emotionally disturbed.
