Exceptional Children
General Terminology
The following are brief definitions of terms with their abbreviations noted that will be helpful in working with the Exceptional Children's eligibility and placement process and programs in the Stokes County Schools. More specific information each of these terms may be found in the "Procedures Governing Programs and Services for Children with Special Needs", published by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, Division for Exceptional Children. LEA Local Educational Agency. Each school system administrative unit is a separate LEA. LEA Rep. The representative of the LEA is a member of the school staff, other than the child's teacher, who is qualified to provide, or supervise the provision of specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of children with disabilities. The LEA Rep is knowledgeable about the general curriculum and the availability of resources of the local educational agency. SAT School Assistance Team, a team at the school level that assists teachers in developing intervention strategies within the regular education program for students experiencing difficulties. The SAT may then refer a student to an IEP team for consideration for evaluation if the interventions tried are not successful within the regular classroom. As the SAT is a part of the regular education process, it performs as a separate group from the IEP Committee. The referral process for the exceptional child, with its required 90-day timeline, begins with the referral (DEC 1) to the Referral Coordinator/Case Manager. The SAT process is a regular education process and EC teacher involvement should be kept to a minimum.

BCPS Home Printable Version (PDF format) BURKE COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS Student Accountability Policy The Burke County Board of Education believes that all students can learn and that children learn at different rates and in varied ways. The Board, therefore, recognizes that promotion decisions should be based on what is in the best interest of each child. The Board also believes that promotion standards should permit schools to make decisions that best meet the needs of each individual student. These decisions will not be based on the results of a single assessment. To ensure that all students have the opportunity for academic success as they move through our school system, benchmarks will be established and students will demonstrate their mastery of knowledge and its application. These benchmarks will be established at the end of grades K-8 and will determine each student's next instructional level of schooling. In addition students will be required to meet statewide standards, also called gateways. Decisions made concerning student promotion and high school course credit should be based on classroom performance, grades, performance on tests, completion of tasks, attendance, and teacher observation. Each student should be evaluated objectively as an individual. A child's teacher should support, collect evidence, and advocate for her student to reach his full potential.

For and About Members Help for Parents Press Center News Releases ... Hot Topics April 14, 2002
On the Side of the Angels
A disabled child, like every child, deserves the very best education Bob Chase
President, NEA F or public school employees and their unions, the education of children with disabilities has long been a matter of principle. We strongly supported the historic 1975 federal law that directed public schools to provide a free, appropriate education to any child with special needs. And we did so with that happy sense of purpose people get when standing up for a principle. But like the parents of disabled children, public educators have learned a hard lesson in the years since then: it requires more than a big heart to implement a big-hearted law. It requires incredible vigilance, a jeweler's attention to details, and the persistence of a badger. The kids aren't the problem. Every person I've ever known who has taught disabled children has been energized by them. No, it's the adult stuff that will wear you down: mountains of paperwork, oversized classes, exhausting workloads-and above all else, the failure of Congress to fulfill its more than 20-year-old promise to fund 40 percent of the cost of educating children with special needs. Currently, the federal government covers only about 17 percent of the total cost of special education-creating a funding shortfall this year for local public schools of $10.5 billion.

A popular integration program for learning disabled could benefit children in Los Angeles.
By Sharon Schatz Rosenthal
Dr. Mel Levine, founder of All Kinds of Minds Institute, working with a student. Photo courtesy of All Kinds of Minds Eight-year-old Tamarís fingers dance across a set of harp strings like small waves rhythmically pounding the surf. While the large instrument dwarfs her, she doesnít seem to mind as she sits and plays a complicated classical tune. After the musical interlude, she hops onto her living room couch; her shiny dark hair bounces as she moves. Her bright smile reveals a missing front tooth with its adult counterpart just barely poking through. "Tamar is a real leader among her friends and sheís so good at sports. Oh, and she takes dance and gymnastics," her mother, Margie Levinson, informed me privately. With so many activities, boundless energy and obvious talent, it is hard to believe that like 40 to 50 percent of students across the nation, Tamar has faced serious learning problems in school.

LD Info Home Page Professionals Audiologists Educational Consultants ... Tutors Educational Consultants The Educational Placement Consultant helps parents and children with school placement. The consultant develops a detailed profile of the student from school reports, testing results, medical information, and interviews with the parents and the child. Students are asked to share their perceptions about the school experience and to discuss their specific strengths, weaknesses, special interests, and needs. This information is used as a basis for recommending appropriate school options including public, independent, day, boarding, special, and parochial. Specific Questions: Specific for educational placement consultants
  • Do you work with students who have generalized school problems, or do you specialize in a particular area? Do you work with all age groups, or do you specialize?
