This is a wonderful and resourceful network, I live in South Jersey, My son Chris is having a very difficult time in school he is in a self contained LD-III. Are there any suggestions on how to teach basic math. Chris is on a second grade level. We are in the process of trying a new software program called math flash from the commission of the blind, he has tried the demo and seems to like the program, the real problem comes when he has to count on his fingers. He gets mixed up. Can anybody suggest an alternative to the fingers? Rick

Hi! I'm looking for help, and found your site. Situation: have an eight year old boy with autism. Just moved here from New Hampshire, where Andrew was in an inclusion class for 5 years. Inclusion works. We moved to Mendham. The school is un repared for inclusion--as it appears many NJ schools are--and expelled Andrew. We are soliciting help to understand how to motivate a good elementary school to comply with IDEA. This is crazy!

I'm the mother three. My oldest, Zack, is 10 yrs old and has ADHD, my second son, Blake, is 6 yrs old. We were told he was Autisic when he was 3 1/2 yrs old. Now, were told he has Asperger's Syndrome, (which is a form of Autism, we think). I quit my j b when Blake was diagnosed to try and get the boys to a place where everything was running smoothly, it still isn't. I would appreciate any information or comments you may have.

I really like your website. As a parent, I have been interested for many years in advocating for my daughter, and I am presently in training to be a SPAN resource parent in Burlington County. As a special education teacher, I often find myself biting my tongue when I see and hear what my district Child Study Team members say to parents. I am a board member of B.E.A.M., Inc.(Becoming Educated and Motivated About Special Education) and we are trying to help many parents in our area to advocate for their c ildren. It is always and uphill battle.

Becoming involved with the Parent Advisory Group for the North Hunterdon/Voorhees Regional District. We're just starting and want to invite all interested in participating to attend meetings (two a month) at N.Hunterdon. Next meeting is at 7:30 pm, May , in the library of North Hunterdon H.S. Trying to establish a basis for continuing communication through which we may ensure the best possible education for our children and, by extension, for all students in the district.

Hi, I am very impressed wit your web site! I am the Program Coordinator of the NJ Statewide Parent to Parent Program at SPAN. I was just surfing the web and found your page. I would like for you to consider adding us to your page. We have a Regional P rent Associate from our program who covers your region. Parent to Parent is a statewide network of parents supporting families of children with developmental delays, disabilites or other special health needs. We offer assistance in learning the necessary skills to help parents face the challenges of raising th ir child. Different than a Resource Parent who provides TA, we do one to one matching of families in similar situation to offer emotional support and encouragement. Please contact me at my e-mail address to let me know if this is possible. I look forward to hearing from you.

I have found your website to be simple and in-depth at the same time. It has provided us with a greater understanding of a number of disabilities we were interested in learning more about. The website is attractive and interesting without being flashy. It has a welcoming 'feel' to it, and makes one want to click on a link to find what little graphic or animated 'treasures' await us at the next site! Thank you for providing a valuable service to those of us, who, until we tap into this kind of resource, are ingnorant of much of the facts concerning the special people that are your focus.
