Hello everyone, and welcome to the latest blog to hit the First State: Exceptional Delaware!
I am a father of a special need’s son, and you can read all about my family’s journey with a Delaware charter school here: https://kilroysdelaware.wordpress.com/?s=a+father%27s+cry+for+his+son
Everything that happened with my son inspired me to want to do more, not just for him, but all the children in Delaware who have some sort of disorder or disability that gives them special education. I know a lot about Tourette’s Syndrome, ADHD, OCD, ODD, and Sensory Processing Disorder, but I need to learn about things like Autism, Asperger’s and other disabilities.
This blog will be a mix of news, interviews, spotlights, investigations, and more! I believe every single parent in America should know their children’s rights when it comes to special education. I will be doing features on IDEA, IEPs, 504 Plans, Manifestation Determination, FAPE, Child Find and more. If anyone has anything they would like to see on here, please feel free to comment or shoot me an email, and I will do my best to make it happen.
I have several ideas for potential legislation that will force all public schools in Delaware to become more transparent about the special education they have in their schools. I will go into great detail on my ideas in future posts.
To get the best and most truthful education news here in Delaware, I highly recommend you check out Kilroy’s Delaware, Kavips, Transparent Christina, theseventhtype, Children & Educators First, and Parents Of Christina. If you’re looking for the joys of Common Core, Standardized Testing and Race To The Top, you’ve come to the wrong blog. I can’t stand any of them, and I will go to great lengths to explain why.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope to see you again soon!
