    · July 31, 2019 @ 4:00 pm @ HES Library: Understanding the Special Education Process-Susan Riggs: How Does the Special Education process work? Referrals, Eligibilities, and Individual Education Plans can be confusing and overwhelming and we will go over the process. Why has my child not been tested or does not qualify for specialized services although a doctor has written a prescription for them saying they need an IEP? What do the 12 pages of Special Education Rights really mean? What are my child’s needs and rights? What are my rights as a parent?

    Help Child Find locate Children with Disabilities
    What is Child Find? Child Find is a statewide effort by the Alabama State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to age 21
    How does Child Find work? Early Intervention and Special Education Services work closely with community service agencies, parents, and local school systems to locate children with disabilities. A toll -free number is provided for parents or other persons interested in information about referring a child from birth to age 21.
    Why is Child Find Important? It helps the child, the family, and the provider to plan appropriate services and link families to services for students meeting eligibility requirements in the following disability areas: hearing impairment, deaf-blindness, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, speech language impairment, visual impairment, specific learning disabilities, autism, traumatic brain injury, developmental delay, and emotional disability. For more information about Child Find, contact your local school system, local coordinating council, or call Susan Riggs at 205-486-5181 for ages 3-21 or call 1-800-543-3098 for Birth through 2 years old.

  • Tuesday Update on Search

    The search resumed this morning.  Nothing new to report as far as findings.  Christian Aid Ministries SAR Unit is still utilizing sonar to try and identify objects that are on the bottom.  Divers are on scene to dive on targets that can’t be ruled out with sonar.  Divers have already been in the water this morning searching.  ALEA Aviation flew over the area this morning to do an aerial search.  ALEA Marine Patrol boats are on scene.  There are other agencies there as well.  I hope to have a full list of those involved in my next update.
