Is Diversity Like A New Box of Crayons?
We are asking the wrong questions when we discuss whether (or when) a child with a disability should be included in a mainstream classroom, or integrated with typically developing peers in other programs. Mainstream students in regular classrooms already enjoy many accommodations and supports.
Car Safety Issues - Prevention is the Key
Summer safety issues include the dangers of cars and weather. Never leave a child alone in or near a car; something as simple as keeping a teddy bear in your child's car seat, or tying a ribbon on your antenna, can save the life of the child you love.
