The Maryland State Bar Association’s Public Awareness Committee and the Advocates for Children and Youth, the Maryland Disability Law Center has prepared this information. It is intended to inform the public and not serve as legal advice. Please note that the online version contains information not available in the print edition. Introduction Under the federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and corresponding state law, a child with a disability, which affects his or her learning has a right to a free and appropriate public education. A child is entitled to a program, which is designed to meet his or her individual learning needs. This includes specially designed classroom instruction and related services needed by the child to benefit from the education program. Who is Eligible for Special Education Services?
  • Children with disabilities from 3 to 21 years old may be eligible for special education services.

Human/Animal Bond:
Pets Living With Disabilities
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.

To Guide Entry
The primary objective of this unit is to sensitize both students and teachers to special education students and their needs and their rights. Many regular education students and teachers have had limited contact with special education students. They have very little understanding of the various handicaps of children with special needs. The information and activities in this unit will help Non-handicapped students get past their misconceptions and misunderstandings about children with handicaps. Teachers must help their students to understand and accept their peers with special needs. Teaching students about the various disabilities the other students have will foster an understanding of students with special needs. It is ignorance about disabilities and handicaps that breeds fear. Through education, non-handicapped students will learn to respect and understand the handicapped students as individuals. The second objective of this unit is to help the mainstreamed child with special needs to feel comfortable, accepted and confident in his or her classroom.

June 10, 2004 Disabled Rebel Against County 'Neglect' Stage March in Rockville By Brendan Armbruster Staff Writer It may have been a bad joke that set things off, but a group of parents, teachers and students decided to march in protest through the rain on Monday against what they claim is the Montgomery County Public Schools system's refusal to adequately meet the needs of disabled and special education students. "This has been going on for 10 years," said Barbara Fichman, of what she called the MCPS system's neglect of special-need students. She was standing outside the Board of Education building with about 100 others. "And Greismann represents a culture in MCPS that denies services to special education kids," Fichman said. She was referring to Zvi Greismann, an attorney for MCPS, who made news earlier in the month for an appearance at an annual national conference last May that focuses on students with disabilities issues. Greismann made several comments in a skit performed at the conference that he has described as satirical but that many parents, who obtained a video copy of the performance seven weeks ago, said were inappropriate and offensive.

by Corinne F. Hammett Wheelchair mounts; a padded device holder; a Buddy Button Switch; an augmented computer keyboard for young children; talking word processors, and a Co-Writer that is a word prediction profile: this is just a tiny example of the complex and large array of often highly expensive equipment that special needs children require to learn skills for daily living and education. Though Maryland law mandates that schools provide the equipment, tight budgets, lack of information on what is available and limited teacher and professional training venues have resulted in enormous problems. Acting individually, schools and organizations often have neither the time or the money to plunge wholeheartedly into this vast resource of technology. Especially when one expensive device is needed for an individual child. D

Students with disabilitities receive friendship and support from general education peers.
Everyone can remember a best buddy he or she had in high school someone to share the highs and lows, to look to for support when things get a little out of hand, a person with whom to exchange hopes and dreams. At Bel Air High School and several other schools in the county, the term 'Best Buddy' has taken on a new definition. Part of a national program, the effort pairs a student with physical and/or mental special needs with a volunteer student from the general education rolls, encouraging the two to take part in school and social activities both during the school day and away from school. Nancy L. Davis, sixth year Special Education teacher at Bel Air High, started the school's chapter of 'Best Buddies' four years ago. "Best Buddies is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of students with special needs by providing one-to-one friendships," said Ms. Davis. "We have a meeting at least once a month and some of our activities have included a pizza party, bowling, movies, and going to Friendly's for ice cream.

The Maryland School for the Blind strives to be:
    The premier statewide resource for the specific educational and living skill needs of all individuals (particularly ages 0-21) with visual impairment in Maryland. The statewide training center for those who work or live with individuals with visual impairment. A model demonstration site for the education and employment of individuals with visual impairment.
Our Mission The Maryland School for the Blind educates children and youth with visual impairments, including those with multiple disabilities for functional independence. Children need to laugh and play. They need to feel good about themselves. They need to feel part of the world around them, to enjoy a beautiful day, to know that they are part of something larger than themselves. Children need time to be children. This is a simple truth that is so obvious that it is often overlooked; however, it is an important part of the daily routine here at The Maryland School for the Blind. Since we first opened our doors in 1853, we have treated the whole child, not just the disability. We provide instructional, residential, orientation and mobility, recreational activities, health services, physical, speech and occupational therapies and Braille instruction. We teach all of the basics, including math, reading and science, in addition to the specialized services tailored to meet the needs of our students. We also understand the role of caring and compassion as it relates to our students. We make them feel special and important. We encourage them to try new things, to make new friends, to expand their horizons.

Contact us Looking at Baltimore’s experience Small schools hold promise for students with disabilities by Pat Halle Question: Can small schools improve learning outcomes for students with disabilities? Answer: With lots of determination and deliberate effort at the community and school level by parents, teachers, and community members, along with clear and specific support at the school district level... yes. There is enormous potential in small schools to meet the individual learning needs of students with disabilities. The personalized learning environment in small schools creates the possibility that teachers will discover the particular kind of mind each one of their students has, will understand the kinds of learning skills each lesson requires, and will learn to provide the accommodations and modifications in instructional practice that students need. However, small school size alone does not assure that special education services will be delivered in compliance with legal requirements or that instructional programs will be designed for all kinds of learners.
