September 6 2009 Children with Special Needs Newsletter


Here's the latest article from the Special Needs Children site at BellaOnline.com.

Teaching Students in Inclusive Classrooms
http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art63003.asp
Teachers often build inclusive classrooms for mainstream children to develop better social skills, self discipline, higher self esteem, encourage academic competence or to support special ed students with IEPs through Universal Design in education curriculum, modifying lesson plans and peer support.

Please visit specialneedschildren.bellaonline.com for other great content about childhood disability, family support, education tips and raising children with special needs.

The Childhood Disability/Special Needs Children site has a community forum for parents, advocates, educators and medical providers located here -

Let me know if you would like to manage a topic or subject of interest to other families, educators or medical professionals. First days of school; transitions to new classrooms; Down Syndrome Buddy Walks; and What we did over summer vacation are available topics. Of course you are invited to start your own or respond to others at any time.

Advocate mom and writer Terri Mauro has a new book:
_Fifty Ways to Support your Child's Special Education: From IEPs
to Assorted Therapies, An Empowering Guide to Taking Action, Every Day_
http://tinyurl.com/50WaysSupport
She has a booksigning in Clifton NJ on Thursday, 9/10/09 at 7pm
Clifton Commons Barnes & Noble, Clifton Commons, 395 Route 3 East
Terri explained why she wrote her latest book:
"I think it's easy for parents of kids in special education to feel
cut off from their children's school experience. The process of
putting together an IEP (Individualized Education Program) can
be intimidating and scary.
Sometimes your child is bused to a school outside your
neighborhood, so you don't get that normal drop-off pick-up contact.
If your child isn't in a mainstream setting, you may not have a
good idea of what goes on in the classroom -- it doesn't relate
to your personal experience, or your experience with your
other kids. Your child may not be as involved in school activities
due to disabilities and lack of opportunity. I think a lot of
parents feel cut off, but if anything, children with special needs
need us to be more involved, not less. I'm suggesting 50 ways
that parents can plug back in and get involved ..."

Terri's previous book was
_The Everything Parent's Guide To Sensory Integration
Disorder: Get the Right Diagnosis, Understand Treatments,
and Advocate for Your Child_

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

Please pass this message along to family, friends,and other important people in your child's life, to share current information and start conversations about ideas issues that are important to you.
