Scout leaders should be aware of the programs and resources offered within the Council for boys with disabilities or needs requiring special services. Scout leaders are encouraged to include boys with disabilities into regular Scouting units where appropriate. Youth with learning disabilities, hearing impairments, mild to moderate mental retardation, and orthopedic handicaps can often participate satisfactorily in regular Scouting units. Regular Scouts can benefit from the experience of working and playing with these "special" Scouts, and the Council will help to facilitate these opportunities. Scout leaders have available to them, through the Council and districts, the following resources to assist with "special needs" youth: References

Budget fails to address special education problem
Michelle Malkin

Columnist Volume 86 Number 63
Tuesday, April 17, 2001 Printer friendly version Buried in President Bush's liberal-spending, a $44.5 billion education budget is a little-noticed proposal to increase funds for special education. The budget item intends to help states and school districts comply with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The law theoretically guarantees a free and appropriate education to disabled students. In practice, it provides neither. The feds spent $6 billion last year on IDEA, which covers an estimated 6 million students with physical, learning or emotional disabilities. Bush's budget allows states to steer up to $1.2 billion more in federal funding toward special education needs. Ma ny advocates for the disabled complain that this commitment from Washington is inadequate. (In New York City alone, where disabled students comprise less than 13 percent of the school population, the annual cost for special ed is an estimated $2 billion, or nearly one-quarter of total education spending.) But more money will not fix the myriad problems with this fundamentally flawed government mandate.

    1. Special Education: Going Too Far For Disabled Children
    Article Printed in the ARC of Missouri April 1999 Newsletter Going Too Far For Disabled Children
    By Joseph Bauers A new student will be coming soon to an Illinois third grade classroom. He cannot speak; he cannot read; he cannot walk. He can go only a minute or so without drooling. He has no bladder or bowel control. Like an infant, he needs frequent changes. He makes wild, uncontrolled movements and loud, involuntary noises. Whether he can learn anything beyond simple gestures indicating yes or no is, as of yet, unknown. But this child, like thousands of others around the country, is part of a little known revolution in education. It is called total inclusion, and it proposes the removal of disabled and retarded students from special education and their reassignment to regular classrooms.

    Inclusive practices transform special education in the 1990's are the outcomes fornondisabled students? College of Education, University of missouri-Columbia.

    What is the impact of inclusion on students and staff in the middle school setting?
    Defining Inclusion Inclusion can be deeply disturbing because it challenges our unexamined notions of what "ordinary" and "normal" really mean (Pearpoint and Forest, 1997). To understand inclusion, we must look at its definition , origins, implications, and past and present research. In the educational setting, inclusion means that all students, including those with mild and those with severe disabilities, be placed in the least restrictive environment available. This often means the regular classroom. Inclusion is not synonymous with mainstreaming. While mainstreaming is viewed as a benchmark where students "earn" their way back into the classroom, inclusion establishes the student's "right" to be there in the first place. Services and supports are brought to the regular classroom as needed. The current inclusion movement challenges educators to look beyond mainstreaming to find inclusive strategies to meet student's individual needs. Inclusion calls for a more complete merger of regular and special education (Hines and Johnston, 1996). Inclusion is a philosophy. The philosophical position of inclusion is based primarily on two arguments:

    Ad Hoc Committee to Effectively Integrate the Services of School Psychologists into Missouri Schools A Position Paper of the Missouri School Counselor Association For many years, Missouri school counselors have been called upon and expected to provide a wide variety of services to meet the needs of students. The increasing complexities of society today and into the foreseeable future have placed our schools in the position of providing a broad range of services more than ever before. To meet the challenges of the past and future, the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program was developed to clearly define the responsibilities and duties of the school counselor. The primary purpose of the program is to meet the developmental needs of all students. This program is defined as: Guidance and counseling is an integral part of each school’s total educational program. It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by certified school counselors with the support of teachers, administrators, students and parents. The guidance program includes: 1) Guidance curriculum 2) Individual planning 3) Responsive services 4) System support The program is designed to address the needs of all students by helping them to acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self and others, and educational and vocational development.

    Program Description Course Requirements Course Descriptions
    The Special Education program prepares students to teach educable mentally retarded, early childhood special education, emotionally disturbed, or learning disabled children. Students also receive certification as regular elementary school teachers upon completion of the curriculum. New Missouri certification standards require a student teaching experience in each area of special education. It is possible for students to become certified as secondary special education teachers with appropriate advising and additional course work. At the graduate level, requisite course work for Missouri certification in Special Education is available, as is the M.Ed. Degree. Note: The State Board of Education developed standards for renewable, professional certificates, based on specific requirements for training and experience. Details regarding these standards are available in the Office of Undergraduate Studies in Education. For further information contact Tom Shea.

    United Way of Central Missouri Organization History The organization started in Jefferson City, Missouri, as a branch of the ‘Community Chest,’ in 1922. The Community Chest had its beginnings after World War I when businesses expressed exasperation at the difficulty in deciding which charities and agencies to support. Community Chest groups around the nation solved that problem by holding single campaigns for groups of local agencies—not much different from how the United Way operates its fund-raising today! In 1954, the Jefferson City Community Chest was renamed the United Community Fund; in the 1970’s it was renamed the Jefferson City Area United Way; and in 1997, it was renamed the United Way of Central Missouri to reflect its increasing role in rural areas of the region. The United Way of Central Missouri 2003 Fact Shee t What is the United Way? The United Way of Central Missouri is Mid-Missouri’s largest and most extensive service organization. Volunteers and professional staff assist our neighbors in 6 counties through a broad range of human care services.
