We are a team of dedicated professionals that seek to see a leveling of the field with the battle for the lives of our children and countless others who are affected by alcohol and the ownership it has of the political and social life of the united states. These efforts are lead by National Editor Bill A. Cohog. Many of the other members of this group do not publish their names due to the negative effects it sometimes bring to their lives and the lives of their families.

When Your Child Does Not Qualify for Special Education USA - If you have a child that does not qualify for special education but has a mental or physical impariment which substantially limits one or more major life activities, including learning, that child may qualify for special help in a regular classroom setting under section 504 of IDEA.
Training Teachers about FAS/E You finally have an IEP for your child, and the FAS or ARND is either diagnosed or recognized. Now how do you get the teachers to understand that your child needs intervention and teaching strategies that are specific to his or her disability? The teachers need to be trained in FAS issues. How do they get the training? You ask them to get it! Here is advice on how to go about this in a legal and effective manner. This advice comes from Jamie Erickson, an advocate trained in special education law (Level III) and a parent of a child with FAS/E.
