    INTRODUCTION TO TOPSOCCER TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based training and team placement for young athletes with disabilities, organized by Mississippi Youth Soccer Association Volunteers. The program is designed to bring the opportunity of learning and playing soccer to any boy or girl, AGE 4-19, who has a mental or physical disability. Our goal is to enable the thousands of young athletes with disabilities to become valued and successful members of the MYSA/US YOUTH SOCCER family. Why do we need a TOPSoccer Program? TopSoccer was formed to perpetuate the US YOUTH SOCCER mission statement, which is, in part, "to foster the physical, mental and emotional growth and development of America’s youth through the sport of soccer at all levels of age and competition." There are thousands of children with disabilities who need, and can be provided with, the opportunity to play soccer through TOPSoccer program.

    The President's Commission on Excellence in Special Education was created by President Bush in October of 2001 to review and make recommendations about the current system of providing special education under the IDEA. Its final report, A New Era: Revitalizing Special Education for Children and their Families , was issued in July. The Commission's findings and recommendations are expected to be major influences on policymakers, especially Congress, as it begins the process of reauthorization of the IDEA. Parent and advocate groups are encouraged to read and disseminate the report and to discuss it among themselves. Following are two excerpts from the report: the Summary of Findings and the Summary of Major Recommendations. You can find the entire document through Advocacy, Inc.'s website ( ). It is also available through the government's website ( Summary of Findings Finding 1: Finding 2: The current system uses an antiquated model that waits for a child to fail, instead of a model based on prevention and intervention. Too little emphasis is put on prevention, early and accurate identification of learning and behavior problems, and aggressive intervention using research-based approaches. This means students with disabilities don't get help early when that help can be most effective. Special education should be for those who do not respond to strong and appropriate instruction and methods provided in general education.

    Home Children's Miracle Network Children's Rehabilitation Center Friends of Children's Hospital It Happens Every Day Children are struck down by illness and injury. It may begin with a simple cough or an accident. And often it strikes with sudden, unrelenting violence. Thousands of Mississippi children and their families must deal with this reality each year. At the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children, staff members work hard to overcome these obstacles. They cannot do it alone. It takes support from the community to keep the hospital on the cutting edge of contemporary health care. With the community's help, 1997 was a banner year for Mississippi's children. It was then the doors to the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children opened to begin offering state-of -the-art health care in a state-of-the-art facility. While the original Children's Hospital opened in 1968 and more than 40 pediatric specialists were on staff providing care only available at UMC, the environment and facilities were not ready for 21st century medicine. To meet that need, the new $17 million five-floor Batson Hospital was built atop the Mississippi Children's Cancer Clinic. It has prioritized children's care and placed new emphasis on the special needs of hospitalized children. Included in the 130- bed facility are areas for physical therapy, infant care, treatment rooms, bone marrow transplantation, a pediatric pharmacy, the state's only pediatric intensive care unit as well as patient classrooms and activity rooms.

    Preservice Special Education Teachers' Knowledge Of Technology Sara C. Jackson - University of Southern Mississippi-Gulf Coast Abstract A survey of special education undergraduates found little familiarity and almost no experience with 17 frequently used items of technology in teaching children with disabilities. The study implied a need to modify existing teacher preparation curriculum to require preservice special education teachers to learn computer and assistive technology competencies to better teach children with disabilities. The study also implied a need for professional development in the area of assistive technology. Insufficient technology skills can also be attributed to the widespread practice of establishing computer labs in schools, separate from the classroom, and thus removed from involvement with the classroom teacher (OTA, 1995). Exposure to technology is necessary to acquire skills in technology. This is an area of knowledge that demands hands-on opportunities during the learning experience. Doing is learning. This well articulated need for improved technology skills exists not only for teachers who are currently teaching, but for the students who have just completed the requirements for their undergraduate degrees and supposedly were recently exposed to the newest educational developments. Ketcham (1996) stated that few of the graduates he interviewed for teaching positions had insight about how to use technology in the classroom. Colleges of Education have a primary role to play in meeting this well documented and important need of teachers and future teachers. Teachers who have just graduated should have the skills necessary to be successful in K-12 schools. Without question, technological

    Schools cope amid growing disabled-student population, special-education expenses By Kathy Walsh Nufer Post-Crescent staff writer Freedom made the commitment to ensure all children equal access to a public education well before state and federal governments made it law in the early 1970s, he said. Yet, in times of tight budgets there is no denying the mounting cost of educating everyone from the blind, deaf and medically fragile to children with cognitive and emotional disabilities and speech delays. While Congress considers reauthorizing the 28-year-old law now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), area school systems are picking up the bulk of the bill for an ever-growing number of special-education children. Two dozen Fox Valley school districts spent more than $62 million in district, state and federal dollars in the 2000-01 school year to educate 7,597 students with disabilities, according to the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute. In the coming school year, Freedom, with a total enrollment of 1,590, will spend $1.9 million of its $12.2 million operational budget educating 215 children with disabilities.

    Charles P. Ewing, Ph.D., a nationally known authority, expert witness and author of "Kids Who Kill," said that the shooter had told friends of his plans before he took the weapon to school, opened fire and began the bloody rampage."
    Join the Discussion "I don't have a solution to the big picture of teenage violence but I do feel this particular act could have been prevented IF someone had taken this kid seriously. With all the school shootings over the last several years, why no one believed him is beyond me. Having a gun should never be a joking matter, and if someone tells you they are taking a gun to school (or anywhere for that matter), TAKE IT SERIOUSLY!!!

    "It is such a tragedy. And again, someone heard the warning signs, but did nothing because they believed the child when he said, he was just kidding. Something this serious should have been reported to the parents or school. Another thing I keep hearing is the parents should be accountable for this kids behavior. We are good parents here, we have done all we can to help our damaged kids, but it scares me that we would be accountable to the same punishment for something my kid would choose to do."
