New Mission

New Mission


My mission is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues.

I would like to visit and observe different types of schools that have proven records of success, wherever those schools may be. I would like to meet with school directors and administrators, government officials, leaders in the business world, and others who are responsible for implementing education systems or otherwise connected to education to learn more about how education is being addressed in their communities.

If you know of any remarkable schools in other parts of the world (especially special needs schools), please let me know about them. If you know of any education experts who are engaged in remarkable work in this field, please introduce me to them.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas regarding the above. Read more about my mission here.

New Part C Regulations Affecting Infants And Toddlers With Disabilities

As you may know, the U.S. Department of Education published new regulations relating to Part C of the IDEA affecting infants and toddlers with disabilities.  The Council for Exceptional Children, its Division of Early Childhood, and the IDEA Infant Toddler Coordinators Association have together produced a side-by-side summary of the new regulations compared to the old regulations from 1999.  That comparison can be accessed at:
