We will be posting a list of possible talking points for the forums in the next few days.

Talking Points for public hearings and comments on Article 7

The following talking points for the public hearings reflect the major issues as identified by the Division of Exceptional Learners. They correspond with the online feature which allows individuals to comment online here: http://www.doe.in.gov/exceptional/article7/comment-article7.html The final box allows you to comment on ANY item and some suggestions follow.

We STRONGLY encourage families and individuals to ATTEND AND SPEAK AT THE PUBLIC HEARINGS. Special education personnel have been advised to do so and we do not want theirs to be the only voice heard. This law will affect your child for YEARS to come and outside of litigation, this is your only chance to affect change. You may wish to remind the state board that this law affects children and young adults with disabilities, and should protect their right to an appropriate education.
