Yes, you did. And I am not going to waste my time digging up more of your fictitious posts. Nothing in your story rings true. You need to do your research before attempting to write fiction.

You're not going to "waste time" because you know I never made that statement. In fact, you probably did look and when you didn't find it the above was the best you could come up with. Just because you say it's so, doesn't make it so.

A I have been asking around in the Deaf community about if they know of a school that has denied placemnt for a child with down's syndrome because I really would like to know what school did that so I can help out as I work in a program for deaf children with additional needs. Like if the school doesn't have th resources, I can contact their curriculm specialist and give them a list of resources so this child's are adequately met.

I really like that idea, Shel, that is great:wave:
I hope if you can find out they will take advantage of what you have to offer!

Yea because if the deaf school doesn't have the resources, it can make things difficult for the student ans staff trying to meet her needs. I just hope they do have the resources..I know many Deaf schools don't have the resources for deaf children with assitional needs due to either budget cuts, not finding the staff who are properly trained, or not having other students with special needs. However, there are many others who do and it is us who should reach out and help these schools or programs.

Although I should add that the attorneys are still on board if any funny business takes place. I suspect that everyone will be on their best behavior though, given that the DOE is involved.

I never said this was the result of a law firm being involved. This students placement was a direct result of the compliance complaint. I did say that a law firm was involved if we didn't get a successful resolution through the complaint process. If it had gone to DP, we would have needed attorneys to have navigated the system. It didn't go to Due process.

Please pull my quote where I said placement was a result of the attorneys being involved. You won't be able to because it doesn't exist.

There you go. Who's the one with the verbal diarrhea now?

:sure:

And don't even think of starting on semantics of what you've said. You have left everything too open-ended so you can have the freedom of dance around what you say.

Yes PFH- I said attorneys were involved if it had to go to Due Process. I never said placement was a result of the attorneys being involved which is what I was addressing with Jillio. This student got placement because of the Compliance Complaint.

If I had that little green icon you included, I'd post it here.

And yes, the attorneys are on stand by if needed.

Shel- they do have a "Special Day Class" so they do have the resources. Although, it certainly wouldn't hurt for them to have additional ideas and resources. I will connect with the attorney and see what he says about providing the name of the school.

The only documentation I have from the DOE is the report from the compliance complaint which clearly states that it's confidential. If I get the go ahead, I'll provide the name. I'm sure you can understand my hesitancy in making that public, before I have confirmation that it's okay to do so.

It was never my intent to "bash deaf schools"- more that I wanted to draw attention to this case which isn't that uncommon. This is another piece of the educational system that needs to be rectified.

Just because a child has a secondary disability doesn't cancel out the way they receive information.

So a little update. I filed a compliance complaint on behalf of the parents/student. A very well respected law firm has taken the case, and we are just waiting to see the schools next move. Hopefully we will be able to get the situation resolved without going to Due Process; but if we can't, I feel good about the fact that the family has the expert support of one of the best firms available.
Compliance complaints typically take about 60 days to come to a resolution so we just have to be patient. If it does end up going to DP, I'll post the information because at that point it will be a matter of public record. I just hope and pray we can come to a positive resolution before that happens.

Here you go.

CSign, don't listen to him. English is his first language, but he chooses to be that way.

Then why say it? It's no different than not being able to post PMs here. Which is ban-able.

His early education is not a secret on AD. He has said it many times. Report all you want. More scare tactics for you to use when someone disagrees with you. ;)

My initial point was that he was hellbent on distorting CSign's words...calling her a liar and using an obscene smiley, even.

edit: I reported posts myself, so hopefully a mod comes in here and reminds people to be civil.

No secret that I learned sign language first......... :giggle:

And if you wanted to get into obscenity I would look no further than your last few posts.

Funny how your history changes! Well, I stand corrected. English is not his first language, so maybe he can't understand it!
