Special Staff for Special Kids
PSRPs play vital role in providing services to the students who need them the most At A ndrew J ohnson E lementary S chool in Oklahoma City, the principal sometimes takes applicants for jobs as special education paraprofessionals on a school tour. They usually stop in Terry Goforth's room, where the veteran paraprofessional works with disabled preschool kids. That's often the last time Goforth sees the job applicants. "Once they get a view of what's involved with the job and the pay," they decide they can't handle it, says Goforth, a member of the Oklahoma City Federation of Classified Employees. Of the six children in her roomstaffed by a teacher and two education assistantsonly one can walk on her own. The job applicants "are just not prepared for special education," Goforth says, adding that starting pay for some positions works out to less than $9,000 a year. Wilma Rose, a Colorado paraprofessional working as an occupational and physical therapist, knows exactly what Goforth is talking about. "It's hard to find someone who will stay with it because of the needs that are required," says Rose, a member of the Colorado Classified School Employees Association who works in Brighton, Colo. Some of the duties are "not fun," as she delicately puts it.

speech language impaired, visually disabled, seriously emotionally who, because ofimpairments, need special education for students in the oklahoma City District
Before placing a student in a special education program, every attempt is made to provide for their learning needs in the regular classroom. Students evaluated and identified by the school staff as disabled are considered for placement in an educational program especially designed for their needs. All personnel involved in a child's educational program, such as the principal, psychologist, counselor, special education teacher, regular teacher and parent review the child's progress to verify the need for special education. Parental consent is required prior to special education evaluation and/or placement. Hearing impairment, orthopedic impairment, visual impairment, deafness, serious emotional disturbance, multiple disa bilities, specific learning disability, autism, traumatic brain injury, mental retardation and developmental delay, deaf-bli nd, other health impairment, speech and language impairment services are offered. If a limited English proficient student is suspected of having a disability, the student may be referred for an evaluation by the Special Services department. It is recommended that the classroom teacher, bilingual assistant and parent confer before the referral process is started.

Education Legal Provisions Individuals with Disabilities Education Act
First enacted in 1975 as P.L. 94-142, the major federal law affecting educational services for children with disabilities is now called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
IDEA sets forth the rights of children with disabilities to receive a free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. The law authorizes federal financial assistance to states so that they can help local school districts cover the cost of providing full educational opportunities to children and youth with disabilities.
IDEA has been amended repeatedly over the years, with the most recent changes enacted in 1997. For information on IDEA and a summary of changes made by the 1997 Amendments, visit the NICHCY web site at http:// . Select the publication "Education of Children and Youth with Special Needs: What Do the Laws Say?" and "IDEA Amendments of 1997."
These are major provisions of IDEA today:

    Chairman Burton and Members of the Committee: Thank you for the opportunity to speak with you about the critical issue of special education. My name is Ed Amundson and I have served as the Chair of the National Education Association’s (NEA) Caucus for Educators of Exceptional Children for seven years. I speak to you today not only in this capacity, but as a teacher with years of hands-on classroom experience with special needs students. I have taught for over 20 years in California’s Sacramento City Unified School system, working with learning disabled students in reading, English, and government studies. I previously worked with severely disabled students in San Mateo County. I have a Master’s degree in special education, and am credentialed in both general and special education. The members of the National Education Association – like all of my colleagues throughout my nearly 30 years of teaching are committed to providing the best possible education to all students, including those with disabilities. NEA has long supported the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) a good law that holds a lot of promise. Unfortunately, lack of information, inadequate funding, and a misplaced emphasis on paperwork rather than on teaching have created onerous burdens for educators and have jeopardized the education provided all students.

AIDS Coordination and Information Services
The ACIS program provides a central contact point for persons with Human Immunodeficiency Virus disease and their families to obtain information on a variety of health care and social services needs. The ACIS program coordinates HIV/AIDS- related activities within the Department of Human Services and provides assistance to various DHS divisions. ACIS oversees statewide operation of the HIV/AIDS Case Management Program for the Department of Human Services. Case management is provided through professional care coordinators located in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Lawton who are trained to assist HIV-infected persons in accessing needed services. Care coordinators provide information and referral, client assessment, advocacy and intervention, access to contract services and follow-up services to assure the client is receiving needed services. These staff are also involved in the development and coordination of community resources to fill gaps and eliminate duplication of services. There are no income or resource restrictions for case management services. HIV infection is the only eligibility criterion and referrals are accepted from any location in the state.
