 Article Title :: Aptitude, Achievement, Processing Deficit - What Does It All Mean?
 
You are sitting with the professionals who know about learning disabilities. They have  been explaining what they will be looking for  when they test your child.  "We look for an aptitude-achievement discrepancy as well as a processing deficit,"  one of them explains.  Your eyes glaze over and you begin to feel you're not too smart.  It's like they're  speaking another language.  You haven't a clue  what these people are talking about. Actually, I've always felt that special education does use a foreign language. That doesn't, however, mean that you can't learn it. Like any language, after a while, you'll get it. When you meet with the Pupi  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Beginning the Special Education Process
 
Like anything else in life, there's a method to the special education process. It was put in place to  help people who deal with learning disabilities get the  best services possible. In order to help you understand  this method, here's a simplified version of the Special  Education process.  1) Request for evaluation Someone sees that the child is having difficulty in school and asks that testing be done to find out what's  causing the problem.  This request can come from parents  or educators.  If the parents make the request, the  district must agree to give a full and individual  evaluation. If the request is made from someone else,  such as a teacher, a   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Understanding Why Your Child Has Been Recommended for Testing
 
You have just received a call from your child’s teacher explaining that she has noticed your child having difficulty in school.  Your child is not understanding math or reading the way the other children do.  So she would like your permission to proceed with testing to find out if he has a learning disability. When this happens, it is always a good idea to meet with the teacher in person.  Being proactive is extremely important to your child’s educational future.  Arrange to sit down and talk with the teacher to discover specifically why she has recommended this.  You may want to include the special education teacher as well, as she may be able to further clarify just wh  (read full article)

 Article Title :: To Test or Not To Test - That Is the Question
 
Little Suzy has really been having a hard time getting some of her assignments done.  When she reads in class, she struggles with many words, and her mother reported at conference time that Suzy spends hours each night on homework.  At the same time, Suzy carries on intelligent conversation, and when you ask her about what she learned from the class, she has some good feedback.  She is getting excellent grades in math class and, when she does experiments in science class, she knows exactly what to do and gets great results. You’ve thought about referring her for testing, wondering if a learning disability is getting in   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Strengths and Weaknesses
 
All too often, children with learning disabilities are seen through their weaknesses. Like anyone else, however, they have many strengths.  It is of the greatest importance to focus on the strengths that your child has and show them to other people.  It will not only to help others who are involved in her life understand her better, but it will help the child herself know that she is loved and valued for who she is. I always found that one of my biggest questions was, "How do I see all of my daughter’s strengths, in addition to her weaknesses, so I can get a picture of her as a total person?”  The answer lies in what is called 'quality time.'" Here are some  (read full article)

 Article Title :: So, My Child Has Been Recommended for Testing - What Do I Do Now?
 
You’ve just received a call from your child's teacher.  As your blood pounds in your ears, you hear her explain how she has noticed your child having difficulty with some academic subject in school.  Your child is not understanding math or reading the way the other children do.  So she would like your permission to proceed with testing to find out what exactly is causing the problem. So what do you do next? The first thing is, Don't panic. This referral for testing simply means that she's asking for your permission to find out whether a learning disability is evident, or, if not, how she can help your child.  She wants to know  1) how your child lea  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Understanding The Report
 
"No thank you.  Don't bother to send me the report about the testing results.  I won't understand it anyway.  I'll just listen at the meeting." Those were the words of more than one parent I spoke with whose children had been tested to see if they  needed special education services. I could always hear the  discouragement in their voices as they spoke. I heard the same tone of voice in a person a little closer to home just recently.  A relative of mine has a son  who has just been evaluated, and the parents had been given  a copy of the report.  He and his wife both have college  educations, and they still had difficulty understanding what  was being said.  He   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Alias: Aptitude
 
Be aware. You may become totally overwhelmed when you get the results of the special education  testing on your child. There is a lot of "stuff" on  that report!  And much of it sounds like a foreign  language to many people. You get one piece the results from the Intelligence part of the test.   This is extremely  important information, but know that it will most likely  come in disguise. One of its disguises, or aliases,  might be "Broad Cognitive Ability". Another may be "Aptitude."  But, basically, they are measures of the same thing - your  child's ability to process and learn information.  So, for  the sake of keeping things simple, let's just call  it   (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Forgotten Secret of the Ancient Greeks that Shows Us How to Keep Our Teenagers Out of Trouble
 
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up (Ecclesiastes 3:1-3) Four of the boys at training tonight are preparing themselves for their first fight at our forthcoming Christians vs. Lions promotion, scheduled for only three weeks hence. All of these lads are boxers. Three of those four – Joel, Daniel and young Dave – are friends, finishing their last year of school together. They are a great example of how guys fro  (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Real Problem With Today's Teenagers (And Why Most Parents Just Don't Get It!)
 
An address given by Rev. David B. Smith (aka. 'Fighting' Father Dave)at the Sydney Town Hall, February 21st 2003.  Dave was addressing students, parents & teachers at the Fort Street High School speech day. "The inspiration of a noble cause involving human interests wide and far, enables men to do things they did not dream themselves capable of before, and which they were not capable of alone. The consciousness of belonging, vitally, to something beyond individuality; of being part of a personality that reaches we know not where, in space and time, greatens the heart to the limit of the soul's ideal, and builds out the supreme of character."(Joshua Lawrence   (read full article)
