Extractions: As veterinary medicine advances, veterinarians are able to help an increasing number of animals with serious problems, and these animals are living longer than ever before. The number of animals with disabilities, chronic diseases, and other conditions that require special care is constantly rising, and these animals are beginning to find a special place in pet owners' hearts. "Animals are amazing in their ability to recover and adapt to life with a disability," says Dr. Robin Downing, a veterinarian in Windsor, Colorado. "Often it's much harder for us as people to get over our prejudices about special needs pets than it is for the animals to get over their disabilities." Less obvious needs Many animals with mental retardation or cognitive function problems can do quite well with a little extra attention from owners, though results can vary widely depending on the pet's condition. Dr. Downing's cat Kramer was born with cerebellar hypoplasiapart of his brain did not fully develop. He can think and reason as well as any other cat, but he has problems coordinating the movement of his legs, and he often stumbles and falls. When he does, he simply picks himself up again. "He was born this way," explains Dr. Downing, "and he's never known any other kind of life. He doesn't know he's different from any other cat." Kramer mostly lives his life as a normal cat, but he does require some protection from staircases and other precarious places where his falls could be dangerous.

Extractions: An Analysis of The Modified Census Based Special Education Program EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In May 1997, MAP recommended to the State of Wyoming a "Cost-Based Block Grant" for school finance. That recommendation has subsequently been adopted. As part of its proposal, MAP recommended that the State of Wyoming eventually move towards the adoption of a modified "census-based" funding mechanism for special education. This report attempts to initiate a discussion about how such a mechanism might be implemented. A modified census-based special education finance system, integrated with regular education finance, should be designed to improve the outcomes of Wyoming's special education and regular education programs, and may result in reduced costs of special education as well. If realized, these reduced costs will not stem from reduced services provided to children with disabilities. Rather, they will result from the fact that the regular education program funded in the basic block grant is intended to deliver educational services in a seamless fashion, whereas some of these services were previously delivered in a separate special education program. The elementary school prototypical model, adopted by the Wyoming Legislature and now signed into law by the Governor, included $152,514 per prototypical elementary school (or $530 per pupil in total enrollment), estimated to be the current (1995-96) average cost of special education in the state. The specific proposals to implement a special education finance system, when developed by the Wyoming Department of Education, will be a substitute, not an addition to, this current average expenditure. A modified census-based special education finance system will re-allocate this $152,514. Data eventually collected may support later recommendations to vary this initial total somewhat, although we have no present reason to believe this will be the case. For purposes of illustration, this report assumes the total will be unchanged.

School nurses need to let their Senators know that they are voting residents of the state and that they want the Senator to support the inclusion of "school nursing services" within Related Services of IDEA.

Extractions: An Analysis of The Modified Census Based Special Education Program EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In May 1997, MAP recommended to the State of Wyoming a "Cost-Based Block Grant" for school finance. That recommendation has subsequently been adopted. As part of its proposal, MAP recommended that the State of Wyoming eventually move towards the adoption of a modified "census-based" funding mechanism for special education. This report attempts to initiate a discussion about how such a mechanism might be implemented. The May 1997 report noted that a specific design of a modified census-based funding mechanism for special education could not be developed until the State "implement[s] procedures that allow tracking special education specific costs to each handicapping condition. When these data are available, MAP recommends adoption of a modified, census based formula." These procedures are not yet in place, and data are not yet available by which specific historical special education costs in Wyoming can be determined. When these data are available, the Wyoming Department of Education will develop detailed proposals to implement the modified census-based recommendation. In the absence of these data, the present report makes a number of estimates and assumptions in order to illustrate what these detailed proposals might look like. The eventual proposals of the Department of Education, however, may look very different from the illustrations in this report, as they will be based on actual data.

Extractions: Who? What? When? Where? ... How? N.E.W. BOCES is an acronym for the Northeast Wyoming Board of Cooperative Educational Services. It is a Cooperative, brought into being by a legal agreement, between twelve member public school districts that have joined together to provide educational services to special children residing in each district and throughout Wyoming. To meet the needs of these disabled children, the Cooperative designed and built the Powder River Basin Children's Center (PRBCC) in 1982. All children between the ages of five and twenty-one, who are deemed eligible for special education, are entitled to be provided an individually prepared program of special education by their school district of residence. The present participating school districts include: Campbell County #1 Platte County #2 Converse County #1 Sheridan County #1 ... Top The purpose of the educational cooperatives, as authorized by they Wyoming Cooperative Educational Services Act, is to provide educational services, including but not limited to Post-Secondary Education, Vocational-Technical Education, Technical Assistance, and services for exceptional children. The Powder River Basin Children's Center offers services for those exceptional children whose unique needs can not be adequately provided in the child's resident school district. The Northeast Wyoming BOCES/The Powder River Basin Children's Center services are designed to assist and enhance the local school districts commitment to successful student outcomes. Our on-site programs are especially designed for students with significant deficits in the categories of autism, deaf-blindness, behavior, orthopedic impairment, mental disability, language disability, vision, hearing and health impairments, and traumatic brain injury.
Extractions: Siblings of Kids with Special Needs How does growing up in an exceptional family affect siblings of kids with special health or developmental needs? Siblings of children with special needs have special needs themselves. Their sister or brother with special needs will get a bigger share of attention! While having a special needs sib presents challenges, it also comes with opportunities. When parents are tuned-in to each of their childrens individual needs, they can help ease the difficulties. A note from Jeffrey this letter, from a 9-year-old boy to his parents, serves as a reminder of the emotions kids go through when their brother or sister has special needs.
