This area is for articles on various topics for parents of children and young adults with special needs. At some future date we may include articles of immediate interest young people.
For now, our priority is developing program reviews, so this section will be slow to develop.
Currently we have a limited number of topics sufficiently developed to be useful. The section of the website getting the most attention is our symposium on Slow Processing. A second topic is neuropsychological evaluation, by Parth Gandhi, Ph. D. A third is entitled "Ethics Enforcement at NATSAP and IECA." We have a start but need to do more work on a fourth: Special Education funding through public schools. This has been available with a beginning and an end. Multiple choice "middle sections" to be written.
We are currently developing a discussion of teen problems that are vexing to adults, called "Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll." Problems with accreditation systems and misleading use of the term "Boot Camp" are on our list of topics to be developed.
We welcome guest submissions. If you are connected with a school or program of interest to us, your article must not be an "infomercial" for that school or program. But we would love to hear from you.
No program review, no
matter how positive, is a blanket endorsement. No criticism is a blanket
condemnation. When we express our level of confidence in a school
or program, that is our subjective opinion with which others might
reasonably disagree. When we assert something as fact, we have
done our best to be accurate, but we cannot guarantee that all of our
information is accurate and up to date. When we address compliance with
our guidelines, you need to remember that these are only OUR guidelines
-- not guidelines from an official source. We have also set the
bar very high, and do not expect any school or program to be in total
compliance. It is not appropriate to draw a conclusion of
impropriety (or even failure to live up to conventional wisdom) from our
lack of confidence in a school or program or from less than perfect
conformity to our guidelines. Some will say we expect too much.
