IEP HELP:

WRIGHTSLAW-Parents, educators, advocates, and attorneys come to Wrightslaw for accurate, reliable information about special education law, education law, and advocacy for children with disabilities. 

The IEP Toolkit was created by the Educational Coordinator at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center to help families of children with Down syndrome become knowledgeable, prepared and empowered partners in the IEP process.

INCLUSION:

INCLUSION MATTERS-SNOHOMISH COUNTY-FACEBOOK GROUP-Creating this as a space to collectively, strategically, and pro-actively support families as we work to see our children with disabilities of all kinds included in General Education in their local/home school. This community is intended to support families in securing and maintaining successful inclusive placement.

The Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress’ Education Task Force created a guide, Meaningful Inclusion for Students with Down Syndrome—a Resource Guide for Elementary Educators that provides a comprehensive look at the learning profile of students with Down syndrome, as well as information on best practices and educational considerations that are based upon research-proven best practices.

HOMESCHOOL:

WASHINGTON HOMESCHOOL ORGANIZATION-The Washington Homeschool Organization (WHO) is a statewide, non-profit membership organization. Its mission is to serve the diverse interests of home-based instruction (the legal name for homeschooling) in Washington State. WHO is nonpartisannonsectarian, and non-discriminating in its views of homeschooling and participation in its activities. 

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR CHILD DEVELOPMENT-NACD's toolbox contains over 3,000 different methods and techniques; we investigate, integrate, and develop new tools daily. We believe that your child's education and development should be overseen by you, the parent.

HOMESCHOOLING SUPPORT-We will connect you with a local parent who is or has homeschooled their child with Down syndrome. 

GOVT. RESOURCES:

OFFICE OF THE OMBUDSMAN-We examine complaints from people who feel they have been unfairly treated by certain public bodies, for example, government departments, local authorities, the HSE and publicly funded third level education bodies.
