Federal subsidies were created by Congress (through Public Law 96-272-the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980) to encourage the adoption of special needs children and remove the financial disincentives to adoption for the families. Children may receive a federally funded subsidy under Title IV-E or a state-funded subsidy as per state guidelines. Below we have outlined information related to definitions of special needs, benefits available, and procedures in your state.

Dr. James E. West, the first Chief Scout Executive, was himself disabled. Although most of the BSA's efforts have been directed at keeping such boys in the mainstream of Scouting, it has also recognized the special needs of those with severe disabilities. The Boy Scout Handbook has had braille editions for many years; merit badge pamphlets have been recorded on cassette tapes for blind Scouts; and closed-caption training videos have been produced. In 1965, registration of over-age Scouts with mental retardation became possiblea privilege now extended to many people with disabilities. Today, approximately 100,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturers with disabilities are registered with the Boy Scouts of America in more than 4,000 units chartered to community organizations.

Extractions: THE NATIONAL FOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT INSIITUTE This new publication is created to communicate National Food Service Management Institute (NFSMI) research and projects to you, the Child Nutrition Professional, in reader-friendly terms. Our goal is to help you incorporate state-of-the-art information and procedures into the daily operation of Child Nutrition Programs. We hope this publication will be read, used, and shared by all people interested in the health and well-being of children. The format of NFSMI Inslght is designed to slip easily into a file or a three-ring notebook. This publication will be produced periodically. Please let us know if NFSMI Insight has been helpful and we would be interested in your ideas for additional topics. Children who have a variety of special food and nutrition needs exist in every school district. Studies have shown that most school nutrition managers have at least one child in their school with special needs. The medical conditions reported most frequently include food allergies, diabetes, and a variety of disorders that require modifications to the texture of food. Federal regulations require school nutrition professionals to modify meals for a child with a medical authorization that his or her diet is restricted by a disability. Providing special meals need not be a costly undertaking for school nutrition services. This issue of NFSMI Insight presents recommendations for managing nutrition services for children with special food and nutrition needs These recommendations focus on administrative processes that can reduce labor and food costs.
