Keep Your Special One in Mind First
1. Read the book, “Your Child Is Smarter Than You Think,” by Wanda
2. Find a person to ask if they really know about resources. If they can
answer these questions that follow they might know a thing or two;
my opinion for sure!
>What does NCII stand for, what is it, and is it worth using?
>NCPD? Does the one for those with disabilities differ? Do those
that do what it doesn’t want them to come from boredom,
feeling a lack of respect, a waste of time and feeling of being
given useless information regardless of level, disability or other?
My father gave me this answer thirty years ago.
3. Figure out what ODEP http://www.dol.gov/odep/ is.
4. Find out what O*NET is http://www.onetonline.org/.
5. Here in Oklahoma the Head Transition Specialist it Kim Osmani with
OKDRS; email firstname.lastname@example.org and I believe her office contact info is
Transition: School-to-Work 5813 South Robinson
Oklahoma City, OK 73109-8521
405.635.2768 Voice 800.845.8476 Toll Free – See more at:
A few questions for her?
If OKDRS says Transition should start as soon as possible; Why do
services have to wait to start with to start until a person is 16?
Why has she as the head Transition specialist done little Benchmarking
against other surrounding states to see where Oklahoma falls? See what
innovations Oklahoma may be missing?
How come no workshops are done for middle school parents explaining
online job inventory interests such as jobfit
http://www.swwdb.org/JobFit/jobFit1.html? Taking the IEP and making it a live working document? No money? She could do a video workshop on line in virtual time or leave on DRS website. She did one already. Then
send out information to the school systems.
Does Osmani understand Designer Employment? You want to know more send me the question as a post. I am happy to help.

7. Here is another good place to turn, http://www.ncwd-
youth.info/ksa/demo. A PDF can be obtained here called, “PAVING THE WAY TO WORKA Guide to Career-Focused Mentoring for
8. A new source I have stumbled across called the Lead Center at, http://www.leadcenter.org/webinars/promoting-
9. I want to give so much. I will have to wait for another blog.
Henceforth, I am going with the new today. Be sure please to ask those charged with knowing this information if they
do first before you inform this, including Sooner Success.
Why? My point is best use of tax dollars. The info I am
giving you cost nothing as in increase in tax dollars. Thus, a priority in connecting parents, and teachers to these seems
obvious. In accounting they are known as SUNK COSTS! Check out, https://www.opressrc.org/.
10. Do you know what STEM is? Is it this;
http://www.k20cetc.org/stemplan.pdf? Or, a PDF of
“CAREER PATHWAYS TOOLKIT: Six Key Elements for
Success?” Go to http://www.acp-
for-success.html for a peak. Or, perhaps,
http://www.okcareertech.org/imd? Might it be,
Wanting more? OKAY, OKAY!!

In a July 24, 2013 Tricare announces it changes in autism Coverages on DIvids by video at this web address: http://www.dvidshub.net/video/297093/tricare-changes-autism-coverage#.Ui0gD2SG1vY.

- If you are a retiree or retired family member’s suvivor with autism;

^^^^^^^ Those with autism are often consindred Visual Thnkers. “Thinking in Pictures,” by Temple Grandin often comes to mind when this is said. The NIH funded a study in mice recently that shows the “way the brain develops a visual circuit in growth.” This could be important to autism and the understanding of the processes that go on in this type of classing of a number of spectrum characterisics.
