This law can be summarized by the following statements:
1. Every handicapped child in Michigan has the right to a public school education designed to develop their maximum potential.
2. From birth to age 25, or until graduation from high school, each child is entitled to an education, regardless of the handicap.
3. The Educational Planning and Placement Committee (E.P.P.C.) and not a single individual will plan and make decisions regarding an educational program for each child.

Special Report
$3.5-Million Wasted Yearly In Lockport Special Ed
Experts cite faulty student diagnosis and fraud as reason for soaring spending
A small think tank of local community consultants, assembled by the Lockport Home Page , has estimated that the Lockport School District could save over $3.5-million annually (reducing current expenditures) if it were to streamline its special education program. The Lockport Page plan is expected to encounter strong opposition from current administration, teacher and psychologist groups, along with some parents who have been using Special Education to get extra welfare payments. The plan, if effected, would lead to substantial reductions in the number of special education teachers, aides, and school psychologists employed by the Lockport School District. Special Education in Lockport Schools impacts most of some 733 "disabled" children (January 2001 figures) of which 625 are educated in district facilities, many through the use of "Special Education" teachers and aides. Our consultants find the number of children who are labeled "special" has dramatically increased in Lockport over the past thirty years. Most of these are not physically disabled but rather allegedly suffer some type of "learning disability." Our think tank has identified the reason for this: mis-diagnoses of children's learning problems and parental insistence that their children be so classified so that they can reap additional allotments of government payments.

The poll, being released Monday by the advocacy group Public Agenda, suggests parents feel that while teachers care and school personnel are qualified to deal with disabilities, school systems don't offer special help to children unless families insist. Ann Duffett, an author of the study, said parents have a different perspective from policy-makers.

Special Education can be a complex matter.

michigan state university extension programs Educational Terminology Not only is the ways of communication changing in schools but also one has to learn new words to explain the trends in schools. Below are some of the more commonly used terms that you may hear when you go to school to talk with your grandchild's teacher. The following words are commonly used in many schools today but may not have been important terms during your last school experience. Keep this list as a handy reference for future use! Hands-on Curriculum Today's educators realize that children of all ages learn best when they are active participants in the learning process. Experimentation and active experiences increasingly replace textbooks and worksheets. Since pencil/paper type activities have greatly decreased, children typically don't bring home many papers. This makes it more difficult for grandparents to keep aware of what the grandchild is learning. Communicationboth with the grandchild and with the teacheris the key to success. Developmentally Appropriate Curriculum-(Development:: A child's development in the physical, social or cognitive area.

Special Education
" Given the importance of reading to so many young lives, not to include the discoveries on reading disabilities into teacher training on all levels constitutes educational malpractice ."
Report of the Summit on Learning Disabilities, Washington D.C. 1994
Shocking words from the federal government: The term "learning disability" has appeal because it implies a specific neurological condition for which no one can be held particularly responsible, and yet it escapes the stigma of mental retardation. There is no implication of neglect, emotional disturbance, or improper training or education, nor does it imply a lack of motivation on the part of the child. For these cosmetic reasons, it is a rather nice term to have around. -U. S. Government Study On The Labeling Of Children The Epidemic - " When 35% of the population is affected by a disability, it is an epidemic. When that disability is the leading cause of emotional problems in children and adolescents in North America, we are talking about a serious public health problem." Is IDEA being implemented as congress intended?

A Day in The Life at Camp K.O.O.L. (Kids Organizing Opportunities for Life.)
by Bill Pieri, Coordinator, Transition Services, Grand Rapids Center for Independent Living
A Summer Camp Story:
For the early risers, there is the POLAR BEAR SWIM at 7:00 a.m. It's not as bad as it sounds because the hot August sun keeps the water temperature around 68 degrees at Big Blue Lake in Northern Muskegon County. Ten campers arrive at the dock ready to take the plunge while the other 25 campers and nine counselors try to put another half-hour of sleep between them and the night before. Camp K.O.O.L. is a camp where students with disabilities who want to learn to take an active part in their Transition Planning and life beyond high school may come, but we still know how to have fun! At 7:15 everyone gathers just outside the Mess Hall because 8:00 the breakfast bell rings and there is a busy day of activities planned around the days' theme of self-determination. By mid-morning, we have broken down into small groups. Each group will go out on the lake in the pontoon boat with two counselors. It is quiet on the lake and the conversation easily drifts to what the campers see for their future and what plans they may or may not have to arrive at where they want to go. Much of the time at camp is devoted to making sure that the youths understand that they are at the center of their future planning and that there are resources out there to overcome any barriers between themselves and their life after high school.

Testing Students with Disabilities Back to Spotlight Issues Back to CTEST Home Introduction to the issue Official Documents regarding special needs students Special needs testing in the News Weblinks for further information
Introduction to the Issues As increasing numbers of students with disabilities apply for admission to institutions of higher education, many are seeking modifications during admissions testing to accommodate for their disabilities. Many of these accommodations are granted. The most common modification is extended time for test administration, although large print versions of tests, readers for tests, and other types of accommodations are also provided. When these accommodations are granted, many of those taking the tests with modifications are unaware that the score reports for such testing usually are sent to colleges or universities with a "flag" or other designation indicating that the test was given under nonstandard conditions. This nation currently embraces important social policy goals of allowing persons with disabilities to participate as fully as possible in society without having to face negative bias or stereotypes. For too long, many individuals with disabilities have had to confront unfair presumptions about their abilities to succeed in education and employment. There are now laws in many states and two federal laws designed to prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities.
