UNESCO Survey on Special Needs Education Law 1996
CSIE summary
In 1996 UNESCO published the results of a world-wide survey of the laws relating to special educational needs in 52 countries. The report, Legislation Pertaining to Special Needs Education , is a useful indicator of how a range of countries have approached this area of education. This free CSIE Summary focuses on the integration aspects of the report. The full list of countries is given below and shows a mixture of developed and developing nations. UNESCO said such a study was timely because of the number of important landmark developments in this field of education in recent years. These include:
  • the International Year of Disabled Persons in 1981;
  • the Decade of Disabled Persons 1983-92;
  • the World Programme of Action in Favour of Disabled Persons in 1983;
  • the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989;

MEMORANDUM December 1, 2000 TO: Superintendents, Principals, Special Education Directors, and Regional Cooperative Directors FROM: Robert Pasternack, Ph.D., State Director of Special Education Cheryl Brown-Kovacic, Ph.D., State Director of Assessment and Evaluation RE: Guidance on Special Education Assessment Issues Due to the importance of the information in this memorandum, superintendents are asked to assure that all teachers receive a copy of it and that all teachers comply with the changes in testing requirements described. The State Department of Education believes and expects that all students should participate in the New Mexico assessment and accountability programs. When students receiving special education and related services are excluded from state and district accountability programs, they do not receive the benefits gained from participation, such as improved instruction, higher expectations and involvement in education reforms. The 1997 Amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the New Mexico Special Education Regulations mandate that students receiving special education and related services will participate in state and district assessments in one of three ways: in a standard administration; in a non-standard administration with accommodations as defined in the student's IEP; or in an alternate assessment.

by Joanne Hoover ABSTRACT: In 1992 Very Special Arts New Mexico became the first VSA in the country to develop its own arts center. As a result, major changes occurred in organizational structure, program, personnel and finances. Strategic planning proved crucial though surprises still emerged. The facility's model program for working with the disabled through the arts became a resource for others in the field.
HISTORY Started in 1981 as part of Albuquerque's Parks and Recreation Department, Very Special Arts New Mexico (VSA NM) was grounded in collaborative relationships and housed in other organizations' spaces. An affiliate of the national Very Special Arts organization, VSA NM 's purpose was, and still is, to provide arts programs and services accessible to individuals with disabilities. Initial efforts centered on an artist-in-residence program in public schools around the state, the Buen Viaje dancers housed in a community center, and an annual VSA festival in Albuquerque. Administrative offices were located in the Albuquerque Public Library. Primary funding came from government sources. As part of a city agency

  • 14% of all public school "instructional rooms" (classrooms, computer or other labs, and library media centers) were connected to the Internet, representing more than a fourfold increase since fall 1994, when 3% of all instructional rooms had access to the Internet.

What the schools are saying. LAS CRUCES PUBLIC SCHOOLS

January 14, 1994 Mrs. Helen Irlen
5380 Village Road
Long Beach, California 90808
Dear Helen, After the completion of the Scotopic Sensitivity Syndrome Project at Onate High School with learning disabled students, the response from not only the parents of these students, but the Las Cruces staff was overwhelming. Referrals appeared from everywhere! Parents of elementary students called; parents of mid-school students called; staff referred themselves and their own children. It was astounding! We trained pre-screeners and the screening process was in full swing! Unable to keep up with the referral demand, four screeners processed as many as they could handle. Students using overlays reported dynamic changes in their abilities to focus on the written page. Parents phoned to say that their children were reading at home, independent of an adult for assistance. Teachers reported their observations of students' motivation to read using their overlays. We have lost one screener. The referrals take up an entire file drawer. We are working on our IDEA-B federal grant to train one individual in each school and three individuals in each secondary school. The goal is to have screeners in all buildings. The Chapter I Reading Lab teachers will also pursue training.

About La Vida Felicidad, Inc. Mission Statement:
The mission of La Vida Felicidad, Inc. is life quality for individuals and families with special needs through individualized family services that promote full participation in the community, independence, and well-being.

La Vida Felicidad, Inc. was organized in 1983 with special funding (Department of Health) by the state legislature to provide early intervention services to children in Valencia County ages birth through 5 years with special needs.
After the public school age for children with special needs was lowered to include 3 and 4 year old children, La Vida Felicidad, Inc. contracted for several years with the Los Lunas Public Schools and the Belen Public Schools until those school systems were ready to assume complete responsibility for such services.
In 1990, the Department of Health requested La Vida Felicidad, Inc. to begin the provision of early intervention services to children, birth through three years old with/at risk for disabilities residing in Socorro County. With La Vida Felicidad, Inc.'s Board of Director's approval, such services began.
In January 1992, La Vida Felicidad, Inc. initiated respite services for both counties through an expansion grant with the Department of Health. Respite is short term care of a family member of any age having a developmental disability.

Volunteers with the State Agency on Aging's Health Insurance Benefits and Assistance Corps (HIBAC) provide important advice on how senior and disabled New Mexicans might receive help paying for medical care, food or electricity. The information is presented around the state by phone, through senior centers and direct door-to-door outreach. Volunteers are trained through an intensive, two-day program on Medicare health plan choices, Medicaid, Supplemental Insurance and all public entitlement programs to be able to respond to the same sort of questions the HIBAC staff answers. With the training complete, volunteers each work two to three hours a week answering a hotline, at senior centers or by traveling to people's homes.

Jack and the Giant School - by Stacy Mitchell, The New Rules , Summer 2000. Higher graduation rates, less violence, a sense of belonging instead of alienation: the case for small schools is supported by mountains of evidence and a growing number of innovative models. National Center for Education Statistics The Education Trust Education Week has a section School Finance Issues New Mexico's school funding formula has long been considered one of the most equalized in the nation. A state will tend to have more equalized funding when several conditions apply: a) the state takes on a larger share of the funding (as opposed to when individual school districts raise the majority of funds through property taxes); b) states target their funding to poorer districts, and; c) states take into account regional differences in the cost of education (for instance, it is more expensive to educate a child in New York City than in Plattsburgh.) Until 1997, the state of New Mexico contributed about 74 percent of school funds. In 1997 the legislature passed a revised school funding formula (S.B. 100), increasing the share of funds to around 84 percent and targeting more of these funds to at-risk students. Money raised in individual school districts may go towards construction and maintenance, but not for school operating costs. More:
