What is the Best Way to Support Your Child in the Classroom?

Accommodations and Modifications There are several accommodations and modifications that can help reduce the added pressure these deficits create while allowing the student to more accu

But is soy really a health food? Read on to learn why you may not want to make soy a regular part of your child s diet, as well as some alternatives that may work for your family. The Dark Side of Soy You may already know that soy is highly allergenic. But there are reasons for those of us that are not allergic to soy to avoid it. It is full of anti-nutrients. It also has potentially harmful estrogenic effects. There are also other significant health risks associated with soy consumption. Even organic, non-GMO soy has a dark side. Soy is broken down by DPP-IV, the same enzyme needed for the proper digestion of gluten and casein. This makes it an issue for many children. On top of that, the way we consume soy in America makes it even harder to digest

5 Tips For a Successful IEP When Inclusion is the Target

As IEP season is upon us, it is always good to remember these helpful hints to ensure that your child s IEP goes in your favor when requesting that he/she be included into a general education placement with typically developing peers. 1. Educate Yourself Become educated about special education law, specifically, the Individuals With Disabilities Act (IDEA). Your child is entitled to be educated in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). This can be an inclusion setting at a child s home school with his/her siblings and neighborhood friends! 2. Be Prepared to Advocate for Your Child Have a friend or consultant accompany you to your child s IEP for support. Sometimes a school is unable to effectively include a student with autism into the typical classroom without some support from outside agencies specializing in inclusion or behavioral intervention. This type of support may be needed in order for your child to have a successful inclusion experience.
