In 1975, the Education for All Handicapped Children Act was passed, and in 1990, the law was amended and is now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Alaska's legislature has passed the Education for Exceptional Children Act. This article explores federal and state laws which pertain to the special education of children with disabilities. School districts are required to provide many services for disabled children between the ages of 3 and 22, even if a child is enrolled in a private school. A child is entitled to a referral and an evaluation to determine if the child needs a special education if the child has a problem that makes it difficult to benefit from a regular classroom education. Specially trained teachers identify and evaluate disabilities, provide speech and physical therapy, special materials, counseling, transportation, medical services, vocational education, parent counseling and other programs and services that are necessary for a child's education. A disabled child is entitled to have qualified teachers who will assist the child in becoming self-sufficient and learn basic skills such as reading, writing, math and speaking. Not all learning disabilities are obvious. Children who have a disorder which affects their ability to understand, speak, listen, think, read, write, or spell may have a learning disability. Disabled children may be physically, mentally or emotionally impaired.

Extractions: "Washington, DC has taken over jurisdiction of our schools. We need to give education in Alaska back to the teachers, parents and students who best understand how to educate the leaders of tomorrow." How "No Child Left Behind" Hurts Alaska Children The federal No Child Left Behind law is a one-size fits-all approach to education reform that takes schools and education decisions away from Alaska parents, students and teachers and puts them in the hands of federal bureaucrats. Despite the fact that the federal government is responsible for less than 10% of education budgets across America, theyre still making almost 100% of the decisions and refuse to pay even their small share of the burden. 282 of Alaskas 488 schools and thousands of students are currently labeled "failures" according to No Child Left Behinds arbitrary standards. Schools are failed for reasons invented in Washington, DC, without the input or control of teachers, parents or students in Alaska. No Child Left Behind is programming Alaskas students to fail, not giving them a ticket to success. The federal No Child Left Behind law has eliminated the special relationship that existed between parents, students and teachers in Alaska communities.

Extractions: Gwen Lee of Eagle River smiles as she holds her 24-year-old daughter, Melissa. Gwen Lee of Eagle River often sings the song "Special Angel" to her 24-year-old daughter Melissa. Melissa smiles. Her eyes light up. And that's how Gwen knows that her disabled daughter understands. "She just cannot talk to me verbally," Gwen said. "But she does in other ways." Gwen said Melissa's eyes are the key, and she has learned to read them well. "People who are around her and take the time to get to know her quickly learn how to read her expressions," Gwen said. "Lissie is excellent at communicating non-verbally." Melissa moves her eyes to the right or left to indicate no and yes answers to questions. Her eyes are turned upwards when experiencing stress and downward when comfortable. Melissa lost all other means of communication in a near-drowning accident on the family dairy farm in Wisconsin when Melissa was 18 months old. The dairy, operated by Gwen and her former husband, was undergoing expansion construction. They were eagerly anticipating building on their idyllic dream of raising their children in the country while running their own business.
