Be The Exception

Let's face it, IEP meetings can either make or break a special education teacher. If we can approach it as a positive, a road map to help our students, then we can really get behind the purpose and give it our all. But they can also be overwhelming and sometimes those meetings can even be a little scary. So how do we prepare to make sure that we are ready to lead the IEP meeting with confidence no matter what?   In this week's episode I am chatting with my very own co-worker Meredith Mitchell from Meredith Mitchell's Methods. She is an IEP guru in my opinion and has so many wonderful tips and strategies to help you feel fully prepared! In this episode you will learn: The benefits of sending home a draft IEP BEFORE the meeting. How to adapt the order that you write the IEP components so that it doesn't feel so overwhelming. How to say “not yet” to a parent instead of “no”. About the benefits of working ahead so you aren't working behind.

Episode 93: What Parents Want Special Education Teachers to KnowSupporting our parents should be high up on your priority list. One way to do this is to provide parents with a Parent Handbook. This handbook is the perfect introduction into the confusing world of Special Education and will show your parents that you want to work together with them to give their child the best possible education. Today's guest is a special one because not only does she work within the field of special education, she is the mom to a son with autism which gives her an in depth insight into all things special education…the IEP meetings, the services provided to her son and  so much more.This episode is set up a little differently than my other guest interviews in the fact that I'm not going to be asking Markeisha specific questions but instead giving her topics and just letting her tell us what she, as a parent, has to say. I'm hoping that through her words and her insight of having a different perspective, that we as special educators can take her words to heart and make significant improvements in the way we engage with and support our parents.Listen in as Markeisha and I discuss:Draft IEPs (yes you should send them!)IEP meetingsInclusionPull out servicesTransitionDisciplineYou can connect with Markeisha with the links below and recommend her services to the parents of your students.Facebook Instagram PinterestWebsite https://markeisha-hall-a7ed.mykajabi.com/empowered-parent-newsletterhttps://www.markeishahall.com/iep-training-parent-coaching

We are taking a break over the summer, so this is “goodbye–see you later” for a few weeks. We will return for the 2022-2023 school year, hoping for a smoother and better-executed plan for our students. We hope that we've brought some helpful information and inspiration to get you through these challenging times in education. Join us today for a few key takeaways and reminders. *We will be replaying some of our favorite episodes over the next few weeks until we are ready to start off the next school year with a bang! In the meantime, connect with us on our social media pages! Show Highlights: Remember to continue to push for virtual IEP meetings if those better fit into your schedule; we've proven that those can work during these past two years! Recognize that there are amazing teachers and administrators who are not the norm; they push the envelope and fight through the red tape for their students. Let them know that they are appreciated and supported! Remember, if your child was recommended to do ESY, but they need a break, you have the right to say NO.

Het werd een gezellig en heel informatief gesprek met de heren, samen met Tim de Jong en Iep van der Meer. Met Edward Doorten ging het vooral over de doelstellingen van Green Planet met betrekking tot duurzame brandstoffen.

We will be joined by Diane Cooper-Gould who will talk about how she helped form a Special Education PTA and how SEPTAs can provide support for children and families.Diane is a dyslexic mother of two neurodiverse children and a lifelong advocate for those in need. Diane has a passion for supporting individuals with disabilities and their families. She believes that it is critical that all people are empowered to reach their full potential.Diane's disability advocacy began in 2013 when she founded an online support group for caregivers of people with disabilities. What began as a small group of 12 individuals has since grown to over 250 members acrossthe United States and Europe. Soon, Diane began to realize that though our specific circumstances might vary, we all faced similar challenges navigating the special education system and disability services. In 2015 Diane and another Fairfax County Parent decided to join forces to start an organization that could advocate for systemic change and improvements for students with disabilities and their families. This labor of love became Fairfax County Special Education PTA, which launched in April 2017. Diane has been on the Board of Fairfax County SEPTA since its inception, served two years as the Inaugural President, and currently serves as Advocacy Chair. Our advocacy is on behalf of the over 30 thousand students in Fairfax County Public schools who have a disability and are served by either 504 Plans or IEPs as well as their families and the professionals who work with them. Initiatives of particular focus for our SEPTA led are changing the FCPS policies on restraint and seclusion, advocating for special education students and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, the implementing best-practice literacy instruction based on the science of reading for all students regardless of ability, the implementation of programs with fidelity and accountability, and accessibility in resources and programming for all students.Additionally, Diane has created or co-created, and taught numerous courses related to special education advocacy for a variety of organizations including, VA Parent Education Advocacy Training Center (PEATC), Virginia PTA, NoVA District PTA, and Fairfax County SEPTA. Course topics have included: Navigating Special Education - 504s and IEPs, Building a Community of Support, Organizing your IEP records, Working Collaboratively with an IEP Team, Social/Emotional needs of Dyslexic Students, Tips for 2e Parents, Successfully Leading a Support Group, Supporting Special Education Students in Inclusive Classrooms, and Travelling Tips for Families of Students with Disabilities.Support the show

Welcome to the official start of summer and to our exciting conversation with author, innovator, researcher,  educator and teacher, and entrepreneur, Barbara Fernandes, as we discuss her involvement in technology.  Barbara Fernandes, an award-winning Brazilian-American Speech-Language Pathologist, immigrated to the United States as an adult with very limited English skills. She went on to become one of the most successful entrepreneurs in her field, founding two businesses and revolutionizing her field with nearly seventy successful product launches to date. She has released 70 apps in the iOS app store. Show Highlights: Barbara shares what initially drew her into technology and how she decided to continue working in her field. Barbara knew what types of technology was needed in the speech-language field, so building the apps related to speech-language was a natural fit. Barbara tells about her development of Smarty Symbols, which has been adopted as the symbol of choice in many other technology technologies developed in the field.  https://www.smartyearsapps.com/barbara-fernandes-2/ (https://www.smartyearsapps.com/barbara-fernandes-2/)  Vickie, Amanda, and Barbara discuss the importance of photos matching what kids are familiar with; ie. not using obsolete phone pictures but using present-day phone pictures When ipads were introduced into education, many people thought technology would be too expensive and that students would destroy the devices. Barbara shares how expensive apps were in the beginning.  There has been such a progression with the availability of technology within and outside of the classroom and it is much more widely accepted now. The use of technology has been a gradual progression. Barbara says there are many outdoor/community places where kids do not have access to their devices. (museums, pools, beaches, waiting rooms, etc.) Communication boards installed in various places help kids when they do not have their devices. This is something for which Barbara advocates within her area in Texas. Technology can go beyond the classroom and Barbara shares about attending a meeting at city hall, where she convinced the city to purchase a communication board.

91. Exploring Tic Disorder and Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is a condition of the nervous system. It is a neurological disorder that involves often sudden and repetitive movements, twitches, or unwanted sounds (tics) that cannot be easily controlled. Statistics show that around one in five children with Tourette Syndrome also meets the criteria for Autism. All the research that I have done, says that it is unlikely that so many children have both disorders but instead, Tourette's symptoms often mimic or seem quite similar to those of autism. No one knows exactly what causes tics to occur and they often change in type and intensity. You will usually notice that they might increase in times of excitement, anxiety, anticipation, stress, AND sleep deprivation. They can also change over time and appear, disappear and reappear, they are considered chronic. Screen time on electronic devices increases dopamine and tics are dopamine-related so if your child is using electronics in excess and experiencing tics, whether they are vocal or motor, I really would like to encourage you to evaluate their screen time and consider lessening their daily time. If your child's tics are negatively impacting their education in the educational setting, we recommend that you request a meeting to discuss the possibilities of a 504 plan or an IEP to give them the necessary accommodations or services to help them. Have you checked out our PRIVATE SISTERHOOD? You should see all the training, resources, coaching, and above all, community inside.

We made it! This long and awful school year is finally over. It was its own unique beast unlike any other with so many challenges. COVID has disrupted two full school years now, so we have high hopes for a more normal upcoming school year. With that in mind, accommodations are a big part of the IEP for any student, and this conversation takes a closer look. Join us to learn more from today's guest! Maggie Staub has been an educator and learning specialist for over ten years. Most of her career has been spent in NYC, working in public, private, and international schools with students from Pre-K through 10th grade. Most recently, Maggie has worked for an educational technology company to make learning evaluations and support services more accessible. Her excitement comes from reaching more students, breaking down barriers, and educating families about what can help their child learn best.  Show Highlights: How “accommodations” are defined as giving students different tools and modalities to help them learn Why the biggest challenges are in educating teachers and parents about accommodations Why being very clear about accommodations shows the individualization for each student What Maggie would say to teachers who are skeptical about accommodations A look at the future real-world implications of accommodations Why teachers need to identify the overall goal of what they want from the student in that moment Maggie shares a success story of working with an ADHD student and helping to level the parents' anxiety about accommodations with a perspective shift Links/Resources: Connect with Maggie through email:  maggielstaub@gmail.com   Thank you for listening!  Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to the show to receive every new episode delivered straight to your podcast player every Tuesday.

We've discussed assessments before in previous episodes, but today's episode is unique. Parents and educators may be unfamiliar with dynamic assessments and how they can not only benefit the educator in driving instruction, but also help the student learn more about the ways they learn and achieve success. Dr. Daniel Franklin is no stranger to the ChildNEXUS community as a ChildNEXUS provider and the Diverse Thinking Different Learning Podcast. In a previous episode, Dr. Franklin discussed his book Helping Your Child with Language-Based Learning Disabilities and he joins me today to share his expertise on the topic of dynamic assessments. For the conversation today, Dr. Franklin discusses this type of assessment from the point of view of the practitioner, but he also shares a lot of the history and science behind why dynamic assessments can benefit students and educators.  What sets these assessments apart from other forms? Listen to find out more.   Show Notes: [2:24] - Dynamic assessments are not as well known as other forms of assessments to parents and educators. [3:12] - Dynamic assessments involve a high level of interaction in varying degrees. [4:23] - Dr. Franklin describes the history of dynamic assessments dating back to the 1930's. [5:46] - The younger the student is, the more necessary it is for instruction to be mediated. [6:32] - How can we use assessments dynamically to determine a student's potential? [8:44] - You can have two kids get the same exact score on the exact same test but they can have their score for very different reasons. [10:55] - When a child takes a test, they may have a behavioral or psychological difference that impacts their ability to perform on the test. [12:04] - Dr. Franklin demonstrates how he proctors a dynamic assessment. [13:27] - You can have a child take a test that they should do very well on, but they may shut down on the first question. [14:52] - Teachers may not be available to provide a dynamic assessment. [15:51] - Dynamic assessments are a reasonable and appropriate accommodation on a student's IEP. [17:33] - Are guidance and prompts permitted during dynamic assessments? Dr. Franklin says there are different approaches. [21:14] - Repeated mistakes can be examined quickly. [23:02] - The valuable information gathered from a dynamic instruction is why a student is struggling. [24:51] - Another key element to dynamic assessments is in writing. [26:32] - Within writing support, there is the concern about authorship. [27:31] - Practitioners should be in contact with educators to clarify all the notes taken and the legitimacy of the assessment particularly in the area of writing. [29:17] - Standardized tests are given to all students under the same conditions and cannot be deviated from the set guidelines. [30:50] - Dr. Wilson gives an example of how she creates a report to show what a child could do outside a standardized test and what information can help guide teachers in their instruction. [32:52] - One of the benefits of dynamic assessments is determining the potential of a child. [34:02] - If children continue to experience struggle and failure, it can unfortunately become how they perceive themselves. [35:18] - Sharing your observations with the child is an opportunity to model instruction and boost confidence. [36:53] - A parent can also use a homework assignment dynamically to help determine where they can help in a meaningful way. [37:50] - Traditional testing often makes the assumption that every child comes to the assessment with the same tools. About Our Guest: Dr. Franklin is the author of Helping Your Child with Language-Based Learning Disabilities, and a co-editor of The Los Angeles Psychologist. He holds a master's degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a PhD from UCLA in Education.

Today's guest takes us on a fascinating and educational journey into ableism,  the study of disabilities and prejudices of disabilities. Dr. Michelle Nario-Redmond, a social psychologist at Hiram College in Hiram, Ohio, joins Amanda and Vickie to discuss changing people's perceptions about disability. Michelle is the author of Ableism: The Causes and Consequences of Disability Prejudice, and the mom of a 23-year old daughter with spina bifida, who was raised to be a proud, disabled woman. Show Highlights: Michelle provides an overview of the origins of ableism, and of which literature can be found in political science, psychoanalysis, psychology, and disability studies. There are several distinct sources of prejudice that impact individual thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, such as: an evolutionary/biological basis for fear: humans have a need to feel safe and secure, and might have avoided those who signaled poor health, even in those instances where there was no contamination factor.  the fear of becoming disabled, since most disability is acquired through spinal cord injury or old age. how the media portrays individuals. Ableism is the study of prejudice and discrimination against people who are considered to have a disability. The ABC's of ableism: A - attitudes  B - behaviors C - cognitions  Michelle addresses the preferred language to use when referring to the disabled. Are they “living with a disability” or do they “have” a disability? Just ask the person their preference! Everyone will have a reason why they prefer one term over the other. “Experiencing” a mental health “condition” is a kinder way than saying “mental illness” because the latter term pathologizes those who have depression, schizophrenia, etc. There's a new hashtag out from people working in this field doing disability studies and activism, reminding others that disability isn't a bad word: #saytheword. Although born of existing legislation, when we continue to use the words “special needs” we occlude the notion that these are human needs and civil rights. Michelle, Amanda, and Vickie discuss essential and non-essential qualifiers in the context of a conversation, and the “R” word. Peer-pressure holds a lot of power.  One way to speak up when someone is being micro-aggressive is to ask, “What did you mean by that?”  Michelle shares a personal story and the resulting lesson she learned when she made a faux pas during an encounter with a young woman with Down's Syndrome at a theme park. Michelle discusses her next steps, which include policy issues. Links/Resources: Thank you for listening!

In the world of education, we focus so much attention on academic progress and the details of those IEP meetings. One aspect of education that is often overlooked is the role that play and leisure can have in reaching students, improving their communication skills and self-confidence, and learning to engage with others while having fun. Join us to learn more from today's guest! Rose Griffin has unique expertise in teaching play and leisure skills that can be enjoyed over a lifetime. She has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for 20 years and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst for 10 years, making her one of less than 500 people in the world with this dual certification. Five years ago, she started her own business, ABA Speech, and has created products, courses, and a podcast, Autism Outreach. Through these efforts, Rose serves people all over the world. Rose's next career move is to step away from her work in public schools, which will give her more opportunities to help students and families through her private practice.  Show Highlights: Why Rose pursued dual certification to help more autistic kids Why collaboration from speech/language pathologists, teachers, and parents is essential How Rose incorporates play and leisure into her work in her private practice and with students in school How play and leisure are defined Why play and leisure skills are lifetime skills that begin with shared games and fun activities with family and friends How teachers can support more play and leisure into school days Why play can take many forms Rose shares a success story about a student playing “Simon Says” Thank you for listening!  Links/Resources: Connect with Rose and check out her courses, products, blogs, trainings, and podcast: http://www.abaspeech.org ( www.abaspeech.org)   Find Rose's podcast,https://abaspeech.org/autism-outreach-podcast/ ( Autism Outreach).

The teenage years can be tough for ALL involved. The child, the parent – the moments of frustration when trying to communicate with them and champion them, but seeing no result can feel almost too much to take sometimes!  Well, when Landyn stumbled upon a TikTok video that her friend Mary Jo sent her with the message ‘I think this is what our teenagers are trying to tell us' - Landyn's ears perked up. The man in the video was Jordan Toma. Jordan is a financial advisor turned speaker/coach from New Jersey that was diagnosed with ADHD, Dyslexia, and Auditory Processing Disorder. He struggled most of his younger years from a behavioral and educational perspective - until he was given the gift of an IEP - Individualized Education Plan. Being able to understand how to turn his struggles into his strengths changed his entire life. Jordan's mission is to be the person he needed during those developmental years. And now he's here to help you and your child, too. In this episode, Jordan is laying out: What an IEP is and how to access this for your child The words your child is longing to hear from you as the parent What to do if you and your spouse aren't on the same page on what's best for your child Resources available to your child from elementary to highschool if they aren't fulfilling their highest potential Encouragement for your parent heart to keep going   Let this episode be your reminder that you're doing the best you can – and to trust your gut. No matter the circumstances, your child is just one assignment away from their life changing. And YOU are the catalyst to help make that happen. You're doing a good job, mama.

The end of the school year is happening over the next few weeks all around the country. Like us, many parents, teachers, and professionals are involved in IEP meetings galore. We believe that parents need to be empowered to take an active role in the IEP process. Join us to learn more from our expert guest! Beth Liesenfeld is the host of the Elevate Your Advocacy podcast and the founder of Parent Friendly OT. After learning ASL and interacting with deaf people, Beth worked with children with special needs and became certified as an adaptive horseback riding instructor. She figured out that occupational therapy was her “sweet spot,” and she worked in a clinical setting in early intervention, outpatient therapy, and in-home therapy. After seeing how the OT world functions outside the school system, Beth transitioned into schools. After participating in 80 IEP meetings each year, she learned the jargon and understood the process, now using her knowledge to help other parents learn what they need to know. With this big-picture view in our post-pandemic world, she stays busy with side hustles in investment and real estate fields, along with focusing on Parent Friendly OT.    Show Highlights:   How Parent Friendly OT offers workshops, courses, and summits to help others understand the OT process and help parents map out their parent input plan Why the parent is THE expert on the child, knowing what works and what doesn't work with that child Why the parent should be the accountability partner for the IEP team How an IEP meeting without the parent's input feels empty and ineffective What Beth tells parents about their role in IEP meetings in setting the vision and expectations and focusing the team's effort Why parents should communicate in IEP meetings about what language and measures to use to meet their child's needs Beth shares a success story from her experience with a middle school student's parent   Links/Resources: Thank you for listening!  Connect with Beth and check out her courses and products: http://www.parentfriendlyot.com/ (www. parentfriendlyot.com) Find Beth's podcast, https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/elevate-your-advocacy-through-the-iep-podcast/id1584271582 (Elevate Your Advocacy).

The pandemic brought many changes to the world of education, including how children with specific needs can access the services available to them. We still have SO far to go, and many changes need to happen to help parents and their children get the help they deserve. Join us to learn more! ToniAnn Loftus is a speech-language pathologist in private practice in Manhattan. After working at the Rebecca School in midtown Manhattan for ten years, she had her son during the pandemic. Knowing that her niche is teaching kids based on their passions and individual differences, she pivoted and opened her private practice, Seaport Speech and Feeding. Her practice is a licensed professional speech, language, and feeding therapy provider for children and young adults in NYC.  Show Highlights: How ToniAnn had to pivot, along with many others, as a result of the pandemic ToniAnn explains the new legislation in NY about parents' choices about services for their kids How DIR Floortime and ABA are different–and why ToniAnn embraces the Floortime approach How small things, like a comfortable sitting position, can affect everything about a child's engagement in a classroom Why we need to change and evolve as the world around us does–but we are still fighting an uphill battle How ToniAnn's experience at the Rebecca School (a non-approved private school) positioned her to be an expert courtroom witness in many cases How ludicrous it is for someone in a courtroom to make decisions regarding a child's education when they have never met Why parents need to know that they can file for services for their children who need them—and the immense financial burden for those who don't file How the system is massively overloaded in NYC with people going on a 6-8 month waitlist for speech therapy assessments How ToniAnn feels about the new guidelines from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Links/Resources: Thank you for listening!  Connect with ToniAnn: https://www.instagram.com/the_downtown_speech_mom/?hl=en (Instagram) or at https://www.seaportspeech.com/ ( Seaport Speech and Feeding) Email ToniAnn:  toniann@seaportspeechandfeeding.com   Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to the show to receive every new episode delivered straight to your podcast player every Tuesday.

Navigating the special education eligibility process is confusing for all parties involved (parents, professionals, etc.). That's why I wanted to get some insight from someone who understands the process inside and out. In episode 57 of Are they 18 yet?® I interviewed my colleague Jil Stauter, a school psychologist who has worked with students from preschool all the way through high school. I was fortunate enough to work on a team with her for a number of these years.In this in-depth interview, Jil and I deconstruct the process of determining if students are eligible for special education services under the label of “specific learning disability”.She also shares some essential advice for anyone who aspires to work in the school systems and be a part of the special education process.Here's a breakdown of what we cover in the interview:✅What types of data a school psychologist needs in order to determine if a student is eligible for services under the category of “specific learning disability” using the RtI process.✅What confuses people most about special education services in the schools (as it relates to learning disabilities and other diagnoses).✅What happens if a school IEP team disagrees with the recommendations of an outside evaluation.✅Plus more about the ins and outs of eligibility for services in the schools, and how special ed teams can work together. You can listen to the entire interview here. In this episode, I mention my Ultimate Guide to Sentence Structure.In order to build strong language comprehension needed for reading, writing, and other important life skills, kids need to have a solid understanding of sentence structure.In this guide, I outline common challenging sentence types, how to write goals to target them, and some evidence-based strategies for working on them.>>>You can get a free copy of the Ultimate Guide to Sentence Structure here.
