We Must Advocate for Those Without a Voice
Special Education Eligibility in America's Schools
As a leader in the community and taxpayer, I am hopeful that you will be share my passion to help children in our community. There is a serious injustice occurring is schools, not only in Orange County, but across the United States. Our children are being assaulted with political and corporate rapacity. Teachers and parents substantiate, that children in need of special education services, are being denied! Students with diagnoses from doctors, as well as parental advocacy are being deprived the right to a fair and equal education. This is a moral and legal injustice. As a veteran teacher, I am often disgusted by the changes I have observed in the educational system over the past few years. We possess decades of research demonstrating the most effective developmentally appropriate practices. Yet, this knowledge is being replaced by test preparation and financial budget boundaries.

The Developmental Stages of Writing
Children will naturally progress through the developmental stages of writing when they are ready. The key is to offer them opportunities to explore and create. Providing them with different writing tools, such as crayons, color pencils, markers, even shaving cream will build their foundational reading skills, as well as their fine motor skills!
I have been conducting informal research for the past eight years by guiding children through the stages. I hope to share my research once I complete my dissertation study on the impacts of reading with babies on attention span. I am happy to share my research with anyone that is interested.
Making this world a better place one baby step at a time!
I presented my research on the effects of bibliotherapy with children internationally. Feel free to contact me if I can help you or your child by sharing my resources.
"I will never forget the constant sound of oxygen tank alarms. I will never forget going to church of my lunch break every day to pray that we'd find survivors. I will never forget the sound of my student crying on 9/12 that a parent never came home the night before. I will never forget the heroic actions of everyday heroes in and out of uniform. I will never forget the patriotism we felt as we overcame. My heart goes out to all affected by this tragic day in our history." - Danielle F. Lowe
