High Court Rules against Parents in Special Education Case

A new blow to parents of special needs kids... and in my opinion, it comes from the very court we expect to protect our kids the most. Here is the article and editorial post from Postcards from Holland. Needless to say, this is a message to all parents that we need to fight, and not give up on wanting better things for our kids.

Hey Kelly- I saw this video and thought of you. I am not a fan of country music, but I just LOVE the words to this song, and I think you might too. The video was made by a Grandma of a little one with special needs. Maybe you have seen it. Here ya go:

I would hope that the courts take each case independently. I happen to work in a School District that has an exceptional special education program. As a therapist in the schools, I am an advocate for the kids and my boss out and out says that we are, dispite the fact that we contract to the district.

I can only speak for my school district, but when there is a need, my district has never denied a purchase or disregarded a recommendation that I have requested or offered.
