Welcome to my site – I hope you find it helpful. If this is your first visit, click here for a guide to the site. This site is named after the book Uniquely Gifted: Identifying and Meeting the Needs of the Twice-Exceptional Student , edited by Kiesa Kay. Twice-exceptional children (that is, intellectually gifted children with special needs such as AD/HD, learning disabilities, Asperger Syndrome, etc.) have a hard time of it in our education system - because their giftedness can mask their special needs and their special needs hide their giftedness, they are often labeled as "lazy", "unmotivated", "not trying". Many people don't even realize that a child can be both gifted and learning disabled; however, Linda Silverman, Ph.D., the director of the Gifted Development Center has found that fully 1/6 of the gifted children tested at the GDC have a learning difference of some type I am a special needs educational advisor , as well as co-founder and co-listowner of the GT-Special email list for families with gifted/special needs children - founded because my co-listowner and I needed a place where we could talk with other parents about our uniquely gifted children.

6. "Special Education Changes Take Effect"
Starting Wednesday, massachusetts' schools will no longer be maximum feasible servicesto disabled students private day and residential-special-needs programs
"Special education changes take effect" by Dan Ring, December 30, 2001, from and Union News For more stories like this, visit BOSTON — Parents and advocates are deeply concerned that schools across the state will be forced to scale back services to disabled students under a new special education law that takes effect on Wednesday. The law, passed in July 2000 after years of controversy, significantly revises what was widely considered the most generous special education law in the nation. Starting Wednesday, Massachusetts' schools will no longer be mandated to provide "maximum feasible" services to disabled students. Instead, the new state law adopts the federal standard, which provides for "free and appropriate" services and is the rule in every other state. Supporters and opponents said the change will give school officials more leeway to deny costly, extra services such as private speech and occupational therapy or full-time personal classroom aides. Schools might also cut back on payments for students to enroll at private day- and residential-special-needs programs. "They have a new tool to use to limit the amount of services," said Gwen K. Gosselin of Chicopee, whose daughter, Joy, 15, has Down syndrome and attends Chicopee High School. "School systems give nothing more than the law requires. I'm going to think positive and yet be aware that it may not be positive."

Reforms Crucial to Special Education
by Marie Gryphon June 14, 2002 Marie Gryphon is a policy analyst with the Cato Institute's Center for Educational Freedom. The Washington Education Association recently released a survey revealing that two-thirds of the state's special education teachers plan to quit over the next five years. Teachers of special needs children cited excessive paperwork and too many meetings as leading reasons for their decision to hit the road, exacerbating a serious existing shortage of qualified personnel. Predictably, the WEA used these results to call for two favorite union remedies, higher pay and smaller class sizes. Union President Charles Hasse said the survey confirms "a compensation and workload crisis among special ed staff." In fact, Washington's teachers and students would benefit most from a rarer prescription - fundamental reform. Washington is held hostage to a federal statute that governs nearly every aspect of special education. Passed in 1975, the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) mandates a complex series of meetings, paperwork, notice requirements and legalistic due process procedures for developing each disabled child's educational plan. While IDEA played a positive role in opening the doors of public schools to disabled children, the statute is a disaster when it comes to the thing parents need most: peaceful, efficient provision of high-quality educational services.

    Charter Schools: A Look at Accountability
    Accountability in charter schools is a bottom line concern in this new experiment in public schooling. Charter schools receive freedom and autonomy in exchange for improvements in learning and climate. Are charter schools indeed accountable to their constituencies: students, their parents, and the taxpaying public at large? This paper looks at the issue of accountability in three broad categories: student learning; equity concerns, and public accountability. In each category, the goal is to raise points that can, in the long run, lead to the weakening of this experiment. Policymakers owe it to students, their parents, educators and the public to ensure that charter laws and the oversight of charter implementation will lead to strong performance and equitable outcomes for all involved.

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.
