    access to specialized help and at times even barring them from evaluation for learning disabilities As is common with Ms Samuels report this is a valuable recitation of the situation I recommend it to folks who are concerned about high stakes testing and special education Link to the article Posted on 19 June 2009 18 June 2009 Author John Lloyd Categories Administration News Public Policy The Press Tags comments policy Public Policy special education NCD meeting 20 July 2009 National Council on Disability NCD has invited people to attend a meeting and contribute to a discussion of policies practices and etc that affect individuals with disabilities Although this meeting is not precisely centered on special education I ve posted it here for the benefit of those of us who work with families on transition issues or are concerned with other aspects of special education where larger issues of public policy intersect with special ed June 17 2009 Dear Friends and Colleagues On behalf of the National Council on Disability NCD it is my pleasure to invite you to attend NCD s next quarterly meeting which will take place at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center 30 South 7th Street Minneapolis MN beginning at 8 30 a m on Monday July 20 2009 and ending at 11 00 a m on Wednesday July 22 2009 This meeting is open to the public NCD is an independent federal agency composed of 15

mandate we gather public and stakeholder input including that received at our public meetings held around the country review and evaluate federal programs and legislation and provide the President Congress and federal agencies with advice and recommendations Continue reading NCD meeting 20 July 2009 Posted on 18 June 2009 18 June 2009 Author John Lloyd Categories Administration News Public Policy Tags comments families policy Public Policy Does retention protect kids from special ed Michael Silverstein and colleagues reported interesting data about whether children who are retained during the early grades later require special education Exploring the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study Kindergarten Cohort ECLS K they found that many children who were retained continued to experience academic difficulties but never received an IEP Receipt of Special Education Services Following Elementary School Grade Retention Michael Silverstein MD MPH Nicole Guppy MD Robin Young MA Marilyn Augustyn MD Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med 2009 163 6 547 553 Objective To estimate the proportion of children who receive an Individualized Education Program IEP following grade retention in elementary school Design Longitudinal cohort study Participants Children retained in kindergarten or first K 1 grade and third grade presumably for academic reasons were followed up through fifth grade Main Outcome Measure Presence or absence of an IEP Results A total of 300 children retained in K 1 and 80 retained in third grade were included in the study Of the K 1 retainees 68 9 never received an IEP during the subsequent 4 to 5 years of the third grade retainees 72 3 never received an IEP Kindergarten first grade retainees in the highest quintile for socioeconomic status and those with suburban residence were less likely to receive an IEP than retained children in all other socioeconomic status quintiles adjusted odds ratio 0 17 95 confidence interval 0 05 0 62 and in rural communities 0 16 0 06 0 44 Among K 1 retainees with persistently low academic achievement in math and reading as assessed by standardized testing 38 2 and 29 7 respectively never received an IEP Conclusions Most children retained in K 1 or third grade for academic reasons including many of those who demonstrated sustained academic difficulties never received an IEP during elementary school Further studies are important to elucidate whether retained elementary schoolchildren are being denied their rights to special education services In the meantime early grade retention may provide an opportunity for pediatricians to help families advocate for appropriate special education evaluations for children experiencing school difficulties Should retention be a flag for special education evaluation Some folks argue that it should For example using data from a study by Margaret Beebe Frankenburger and colleagues 2004 Ryan Kinlaw answers Yes Most students at risk of retention can be identified on the basis of ability measures and teacher perceptions at least by second grade Possible strategies for minimizing the likelihood of retention include focused and individualized assessment of their special education needs Kinlaw 2005 p 5 How does all this fit into the response to instruction efforts that are popping up in so many schools around the US If we had a database of the progress monitoring data that we could connect to data about teacher ratings retention in grade evaluation for special education and so forth what would we be able to learn Would we learn that when a child has been retained then he s protected from being referred for special education If so is that a good outcome My hunch is that we d find some students 5 10 not counting those who have physical disabilities who started at the low end of the distribution on measures of literacy and had progress rates that were lower than most of their peers They would very likely be among students who received tier 2 services And they would be significantly more likely to be retained evaluated for special education etc Sources Beebe Frankenberger M Bocian K M MacMillan D L Gresham F M 2004
