LRS LARGE PRINT reproductions have been helping the visually impaired student for over 30 years, but are now being used more and more for LD students as well! Teachers and other professionals, working with adults who have learning disabilities, particularly dyslexia, have been telling us that LARGE PRINT books are an educational tool, which can facilitate the initial reading process. LARGE PRINT can truly "open up the world of reading" for LD students by unjumbling words, reducing focus demand and visual delineation between the text and background, and making the tracking process easier. back to top of page

Including special-needs students in regular classrooms seems to improve student academic performance, data show
by Peter Farley
AMHERST The inclusive-style classroom may be denying elementary school special needs students the attention they require and the education they deserve, according to some local teachers. But an analysis of available data gives a different picture. Now only one question remains: which method of grouping is most effective in helping students, with and without disabilities, to achieve their expected goals? IDEA requires that disabled students be placed in a setting that constitutes the "least restrictive environment." In other words, the government calls for disabled students to be educated with those who are nondisabled, to the maximum extent appropriate. However, teachers such as Mary Donovan, a fourth-grade instructor at Crocker Farm Elementary School in Amherst, say the law is often misinterpreted. The "least restrictive environment" isn’t always the regular classroom for special needs students, Donovan said.

    Link Between MMR Shots and Autism Disputed A theory that children develop autism as a result of having had measles-mumps-rubella vaccination is generating concern in both lay and medical communities, according to researchers who set out to determine to determine if there is any connection. First floated in Great Britain in the late 1990s by a medical investigative group, the theory holds that the combined vaccine given in early infancy may cause the developmental condition known as autism, which normally surfaces when children are 18 to 19 months of age, shortly after they have completed their vaccinations. Because autism is so difficult a condition for parents to accept, and because it is incompletely understood by medical practitioners, theories about its cause have been wide-ranging, from coldness in mothers to failure of parts of the brain to develop during pregnancy. In light of the serious implications for vaccine practice of the latest theory, a group of researchers in the California Department of Health reviewed the immunization coverage rates of children born between 1980 and 1994 who were enrolled in California kindergartens, to determine the age at which they first received MMR vaccinations. Those data were then compared with autism caseloads of children born in the same years who were enrolled in the California Department of Developmental Services regional service center system. They found that although there were only modest increases in the rates of immunization during those years, the numbers of autism cases increased markedly. This led the researchers to conclude that the difference is so wide that it's hard to see any connection.

    Homeschooling Laws
    for Children with Disabilities

    There are many advantages to home educating children with learning difficulties. These children generally do better in an educational setting with a higher student/teacher ratio, which is just what homeschooling provides. Instruction can be totally individualized to meet the child’s specific needs. The parent can take advantage of all the teachable moments throughout the day. Homeschool families don’t have to undo bad habits learned in the classroom.
    There are also challenges when home educating children with disabilities. The parent needs to spend extra time learning about the child’s specific learning challenge and appropriate teaching methodologies. Some children with disabilities will be dependent on the family for years and require an enormous amount of supervision. Overall, parents with children with disabilities say home- schooling, while challenging, is very rewarding.
    The homeschool statute, ORS 339.035, makes provision for home educating children with disabilities. This portion of the statute is interpreted in OAR 581-021-0029 which deals specifically with children with disabilities.
    If I have a child I think is disabled, do I have to follow these rules?

    You Are Here: Home Crossroad Special Inst. Education Funding: At the Crossroads Special Instruction Spending Outpaces Regular Classroom Instruction 4 to 1 Why are Oregon schools pinched for funds while national statistics show the state’s school funding levels per student are above the national average? In an attempt to answer the question posed above, the Oregon School Boards Association commissioned ECONorthwest to investigate the state’s K-12 funding situation since the 1990 passage of Oregon’s first property tax limitation measure and the start of the K-12 school funding equalization process. What did they find? Not surprisingly, the answers are complex. No 30-second sound bite answers emerged. Two key factors impact the funding-level debate:
    • Implementation of equalization, which provides comparable levels of funding for all students. Under the equalization formula, now completely implemented, districts well-funded prior to equalization dealt with budgets that grew at a much slower pace than districts poorly funded prior to equalization. Significant increases in special instruction funding. Since 1992 spending per student on special instruction in Oregon’s public schools increased 14.3 percent annually while spending on regular classroom instruction increased 3 percent annually.

    Gardening offers many benefits to children. It can be especially beneficial for children with special needs, such as physical, mental, social, and emotional problems. Gardening is a purposeful activity involving mind and body, and it is valued by society. Benefits can include:
    • improved fine and gross motor skills
    • improved communication and socialization skills
    • enhanced self-esteem and a sense of responsibility
    • an interest in the future
    • stimulation of sensory perception, creativity, and curiosity
    Here are some ways to keep gardening experiences happy and successful for children of all abilities:
    • Garden frequently but for short time periods.
    • Keep drinks and snacks available.
    • Provide child-size tools. Use small hand tools, old spoons, and plastic tool sets.
    • Bigger seeds are easier to manage for smaller or less coordinated hands. Mix small seeds with sand or peat moss and sprinkle from a spice jar for better distribution.
