Thousands of autistic children ‘excluded from school’

I can pace myself. Self-learning, self-motivation. Not all home-schooled students relished their education. Kelsey Rusch, now 22, was home-schooled until seventh grade, when she started in public school in Bismarck first at Simle Middle School, then at Horizon Middle School. She struggled to integrate into the school, she said, because she wasnt as well-adjusted as some of her peers.

1446. One hundred volunteers helped more than 130 students last year, but Educational Surrogate Parents are constantly needed. There are hundreds of children in the foster care system with disabilities in the Clark County School District and more enter the system all the time, according to Barbara Buckley, executive director of Legal Aid Center which runs the Educational Surrogate Parent Program through its Childrens Attorneys Project. We have found over the years that having an Educational Surrogate Parent is a critical piece of the education puzzle for children in foster care to be successful, said Buckley. Our volunteers keep in contact with their kids schools ensuring appropriate school representatives know about particular issues and needs, provide the necessary educational support, and are aware someone will be there to prevent children from slipping through the cracks.Educational Surrogate Parents truly make a difference in the lives of their children. Volunteers will learn advocacy skills, school district procedures, how to use the law to support children with disabilities, and also how to support children in foster care.Experienced Educational Surrogate Parents will attend the sessions and share their experiences.

“The storm was much more intense than anyone knew, and even with our efforts of early dismissal, we still ran into the challenge of having the gridlock,” he said. Smith declined to say when the students would be home but said they’d be reunited with their parents as soon as conditions allowed it. Could the city have handled the situation better? Sure, he said.

Volunteers needed to help foster children with disabilities with school issues: Orientation/Training on Feb. 27

The charity suggests that schools may be resorting to informal exclusions – which it said can also mean refusing to allow youngsters to take part in social activities or school trips – because they are unable to support youngsters with autism. While schools do have a legal right to formally exclude a child, this should only be done as a last resort, it argues, and plans should be put in place to ensure the pupil is still getting an education.
