New Mission

New Mission


My idea is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. I’d like to see different successful schools, wherever they may be, up close. I’d like to sit down with directors and administrators. I’d like to speak with government officials who keep a pulse on the education affairs of their communities. I want to learn more about education around the globe through speaking with locals, seeing the schools, and shaking hands with the people responsible for implementing the systems. If you know of any outstanding (public or private) special needs schools in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them. If you know any education experts from around the world, I’d love to be introduced to them. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas. Read more about my mission.

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:
