TIME FOR IEP(4)’S FOR ALL: individual evaluation (of) planning/processing/procedures/policies.
TIME TO GIVE ALL GROUPS (NOT JUST SCHOOLS) GRADE FROM A to F?
A helpful group, self-defined, spent a day teaching t coalition building; preaching, “It doesn’t pay to do the same old thing over and over!” What are they doing different? Spreading program 1 person/county full or part-time. Half time salary is about $25K requiring no degree but desirable. Know little about resources(my opinion, they claim will help families/w)
Another group decrees by state plan responsibility keeping Oklahoman’s with this or families on most up to date best practices based on evidence.
Missing is this information: “Evidence-Based Practice &___ in the Schools.
Guide providing appropriate interventions to students w/__ Spectrum
Disorders. + National Standards Reports, National Standards Project –
Addressing need evidence based practice guidelines ____Spectrum Disorders.
When asked what % ___ develop Schizophrenia? Said none do! Wrong. Don’t believe this. Look it up. Einstein had a son that had Schizophrenia.
Did a Needs Assessment of people with this and families dealing with this, Review by posting on their website! How many small businesses fail? SBA recommended? How many groups existing 2 help disabled/special needs educational/vocational miss ½market (admit this is an estimate. However look at what I point out)?*****What groups dealing with health and learning, “That will bring us into the digital age,” missed resources on helping teens quit smoking (adults too)? Allegedly appears to a citizen to be stalling an Open Records Request that is no longer desired?>>>>>Simple Common Sense/Basic: Work email lists acquired (teachers), surely the Dept. Ed. would have thought of this. Educating teachers – get to parents. Nope.http://www.hhs.gov/digitalstrategy/mobile/mobile-apps.html, adult&teen smoking apps, health info apps, women’s info app 29 maybe + .Can this be found on ok.gov any place?https://directconnectnh.org/careerlattice.html – Direct Connect gives funding (scholarships & training within direct care field/aim improvement. Which group or agency can tell parents where to find free pre-vocational social skills curriculum? Has failed to make the IEP a working document drawing out the list of strength’s/weaknesses in regard to careers; by sending out a notification about Jobfit/Onestopcareer & other sites having job interest survey’s parents could complete in Middle School (especially special needs); maybe taking the child to sites related to this career (Fire Station); reading to the child about this? Fail to look at benchmarks other states have hit? How much do Vocational Rehab Counselors make? Teachers? Tell parents about 1? Teachers extended invitation 2 events w/groups? Not Dept. Ed – TEACHERS? CLIF OGLE, President of AFT Oklahoma, knew most, if not all, resources;
NCII, NCPD, Transition’s Digest (recently renamed) and more.WHAT IS GOING ON THAT PEOPLE ARE DOING WHAT THEY WANT INSTEAD OF LOOKING TO their mission…OASIS – like Dept. Ed.prevention could get list of hospital head social worker’s email and sent out their directory. SAD – SAC, INFO-SHARING OKLAHOMAN THAT KNOWS OKLAHOMA IS BETTER THAN THIS
