Adelante—Abre Tus Regalos!!!

Los legisladores de California donaron a los distritos escolares $550,000,000 para estudiantes con discapacidades para ayudar a compensar la pérdida de educación y servicios debido a la pandemia.  Sin embargo, muchos padres no han solicitado ni recibido la parte de estos fondos de sus hijos.  Ahora es el momento de abrir sus regalos y obtener ayuda para su hijo! En julio de 2021, California aprobó AB 130, una ley que donó $ 450,000,000 a las escuelas para ser utilizados para la “recuperación del aprendizaje” para

ADAMS ESQ Special Ed Alert: Independent Studies

Schools are denying special education services to students with IEPs who opt for independent study.  Worse, some are forcing parents to sign away all special education rights–placing parents in a no-win situation. For health and safety reasons, many parents of children with disabilities remain reluctant to restart in-person schooling during the COVID-19 pandemic. In July 2021, California passed AB 130, a law that allowed funding (and lots of it!) for distance learning only for students enrolled in an Independent Studies program. Under this new law,

Alerta Especial de Educación de ADAMS ESQ: Estudio Independiente

Las escuelas están negando servicios de educación especial a los estudiantes con IEP que optan por el estudio independiente. Peor aún, algunos están obligando a los padres a firmar todos los derechos de educación especial, colocando a los padres en una situación de no ganar. Por razones de salud y seguridad, muchos padres de niños con discapacidades siguen siendo reacios a reiniciar la educación en persona durante la pandemia de COVID-19. En julio de 2021, California aprobó AB 130, una ley que permitía la financiación

The “Mommy Promise”

How I transformed from a flaky to a reliable parent, and what that means for our clients today I’m ashamed to admit it, but I was a very flaky parent.  In my defense, being a working mom, running a household and being anchor-parent to two elementary school kids was not easy.  Still. One super-busy evening while picking up my boys from after-school care, they asked for a special treat.  “Sure, later,” I said, which was my go-to response.  My son muttered tearfully, “That’s what you

La “Promesa de Mami”

Cómo me transformé de un padre faltoso a uno confiable, y lo que eso significa para nuestros clientes hoy en día Me avergüenció admitirlo, pero yo era un padre muy faltoso.  En mi defensa, ser una madre trabajadora, dirigir un hogar y ser padre ancla de dos niños de escuela primaria no fue fácil.  Todavía. Una noche súper ocupada mientras recogía a mis hijos del cuidado de después de la escuela, pidieron un regalo especial.  “Claro, más tarde”, dije, que era siempre mi respuesta.  Mi

Hey!! Where’s my ESY?”

Did your school district overpromise and underdeliver this Extended School Year?  Learn how to keep your child with special needs from falling further behind. Many school districts offered extended school year (ESY) services to make up for learning loss during the pandemic.  But the promised education and services never materialized. What happened to your child’s ESY? ESY is not “Summer School”.  Many parents believe ESY is the same as summer school programs—but they’re very different.   Summer school is a general education program open to all

Count Down To Graduation

Getting the Diploma and the Education! By now, most high school seniors are eagerly looking forward to the big day—graduation! Soon, school districts and charter schools will be giving out diplomas to IEP students as if the past year of “so-so” education never happened.
