Joys and Challenges: Raising a special needs child
Parenting is always a challenge. But for some parents, whose children need extra help with day-to-day living, parenting can be especially difficult. Parents of special-needs children live lives most of us cannot imagine. For them, there is no down time. Not only do their children need them almost constantly as youngsters, many will continue to do so even into their adult years. Their dreams for their children are limited by the harsh reality of the disabilities that will always be there. On the up side, parents of special needs children have more resources than ever before, and their children have more rights and opportunities than in years past. There is a higher level of awareness and acceptance of special needs children today, in part because they are “mainstreamed” in schools rather than isolated in separate classrooms. Children who would have been institutionalized a generation ago can now stay with their families and grow up in a loving and nurturing environment with parents who can get the help they need. Parents of such children are often remarkable people. They find an inner strength they need to face their child’s disability. What’s more, they find blessings in situations most would consider hardships.

Schools Fail Under ESEA Maine’s Deputy Commissioner of Education Judy Lucarelli is predicting that within nine years all of Maine’s public schools will fail to meet the standards set by the new federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). If you are skeptical, just consider ESEA’s rules. Your school fails if you do not demonstrate increased student proficiency each year. Starting with a base line of 36% of students achieving the minimum standard in 2002, the requirement moves to 45% of students in 2004, 54% in 2008, 72% in 2010, 91% in 2012, and 100% in 2014. Your school fails if every student does not demonstrate proficiency by 2013-14. Your school fails if any subgroup of students fails to meet the yearly standard for proficiency. You fail if minorities, low-income, LEP, migrant, or special needs students do not meet proficiency standards. ESEA requires the state to set benchmarks for student achievement based on test scores and graduation rates for high school. ESEA supersedes Maine’s Learning Results, which must be revised to include achievement benchmarks for grades 3-8. Right now about 25% of Maine’s students are not meeting standards and 24 schools are being monitored for "low performance." As the bar on student proficiency is raised, many more schools will fail.

Parents of disabled children face unique challenges in planning for their children's social, medical and financial needs. It can be particularly traumatic for parents to think about who will care for their disabled child should both parents die. Planning for the unthinkable allows you to take control of your child's emotional and financial security. It will also give you peace of mind to know that your child will be cared for in the way you intended. First, you must decide where your disabled child will live if both parents are deceased. Depending on the kind and severity of your child's disability, your child may reside with a relative or close family friend, or be placed in an appropriate institution. If you want your child to live with a guardian, here are some points to keep in mind:

ORONO– The growth of alternative education programs reflects both an increasing population of students having difficulty learning and adjusting in traditional school settings and the escalating pressure on public schools to meet the diverse academic, social and personal needs of all children, according to a University of Maine study. Alternative education programs in Maine public schools increased about 25 percent during the past two years and serve approximately 2,225 high school students. The development of such programs appears to be a response, at least in part, to keep these students in school and working toward graduation while addressing their complex problems in a comprehensive way, says William E. Davis, UMaine professor of education and director of the Institute for the Study of Students At Risk, which conducted the research. Specific definition is difficult, but research estimates that more than 20,000 alternative-type programs are currently operating in the nation’s public schools. Maine has approximately 150 alternative education programs that offer credit toward high school graduation. While they vary in type, operation and enrollment, their driving force is similar, according to Davis. All work to provide a different type of instructional format and curriculum, and a more personal, responsive climate. Common elements include a heavy emphasis on individualized instruction, close instructor/student relationships, flexibility in school schedule and relevant hands-on experiential learning.
