Students who qualify for special education services through and IEP or 504 plan may also benefit from extended school year services to focus on existing or emerging skills that can diminish or be lost be lost over summer vacation.

Terri Mauro has some suggestions about
Do It Yourself Extended School Year activities:
DIY ESY - An Extended School Year Program You Can Do Yourself
http://specialchildren.about.com/od/specialeducation/p/DIYESY.htm

And there are dozens of articles available via the internet about recent high school graduates that may inspire and delight you ~ remember that teachers, therapists and administrators often see only children of a certain age with your child's diagnosis ~ there are thousands of adults who grew up challenged by the same disability who were 'late-bloomers' or peaked early and wished they had enjoyed the journey more.

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a related community forum located here -

Johanna shares these resources for families caught in the economic crisis:

More affordable eyeglasses
"In this economy, for those kids who lose or break eyeglasses, for people like me who misplace eyeglasses ;) --- it might be worth checking into this company as an alternative to the more expensive stores."

Please post in the Special Needs Children forum or let me know of any money-saving ideas or resources for families ~ and share those above with friends and neighbors who do not have internet access.

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
