NFDI2012 Video 7: Former Congressman Tony Coelho introduces a video message from President Barack Obama and speaker Ted Kennedy, Jr. for President Barack Obama.

The National Forum on Disability Issues 2012 featured Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy Jr., and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) speaking on behalf of their respective parties to present the campaigns’ positions on matters relating to Americans with disabilities. Ohio Senate Republican nominee Treasurer Josh Mandel and Ohio Senator Sen. Brown participated. The speakers were given the opportunity to provide their positions on a wide variety of disability issues directly to the disability community. Frank Sesno, director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University and former CNN White House correspondent, anchor and Washington bureau chief, served as Forum moderator. This is the only national event to focus specifically on disability issues.

 

*Coelho was credited by Congressional colleagues as the primary sponsor[9] of the Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. By 1994, four years after the law’s passage, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that some 800,000 more people with severe disabilities had found employment than were employed when the ADA was first enacted.[10]    * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Coelho

Obama plots new budget talks with Republicans
USA TODAY, on Fri, 25 Oct 2013 13:46:01 -0700

President Obama began laying out his strategy for new budget talks Friday, saying that efforts to cut the budget should not short-change essential programs like education.

“We’ve got the resources to be fiscally responsible and invest in our future,” Obama said at a high school in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

The president planned to speak later at a pair of Democratic Party fundraisers in Brooklyn.

Obama and New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio also made a stop at a Brooklyn landmark restaurant — Junior’s — to order some of its cheesecake.

“We’ll be eating it on Air Force One,” Obama said after …

Tuesdays are 13-year-old Monica Nunez-Gutierrez’s favorite day. It is the day she gets to see one of her special friends, Rosie, a furry medium-sized Collie from the K9 Therapists of Las Vegas group.

Rosie and other dogs from the group visit Laura Rehfeldt’s special education class at Bailey Middle School, 2500 N. Hollywood Blvd., on Tuesdays. Children play with the dogs and read aloud to them in a partnership with Heaven Can Wait Animal Society’s Tales to Tails program.

“I like when the dogs come to the school,” Nunez-Gutierrez said. “Rosie is my favorite dog. She is so cute. We just love playing. I read to her, too. I read books about pumpkins.”

K9 Therapists of Las Vegas is a nonprofit club aimed at using dogs to provide emotional support, physical rehabilitation and joy for people in facilities and hospitals.

Rehfeldt educates children with learning disabilities who have difficulty with verbal, reading and social skills.

“Kids in my class have increased their ability to speak to others without being shy,” she said. “Dogs are not judgmental. Children can talk to dogs and become more comfortable talking to other people.”  …for more of this story click here

Do we need to increase our language education in the US?

It’s bad enough that general education programs are being constantly cut.

Underpaid teachers with decreasing resources, increasing class sizes, and a general lack of administrative support are the first to be blamed for the dismal educational results in the US population.

However, there is nothing that can hold back a truly motivated student.
