Squag for Teens with ASD

This site encourages kids to develop their “squag” by exploring themselves through art, photography, video and journaling, and to build connections to everything (and everyone!) that they love. This application is designed specifically for tweens and teens on the autism spectrum to self reflect, create original thoughts, and to reach out to their peers. Parent register their child and create a space of encouragement for them with photos, videos and positive messages.

Smart Kids with LD

From site:

Smart Kids with Learning Disabilities® is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the parents of children with learning disabilities (LD) and attention-deficit disorder (ADHD).

Our mission is to educate, guide and inspire families of children with learning disabilities or ADHD—and to change the perception of learning disabilities as a stigmatizing condition.

In striving to achieve our goal we aim to provide useful, authoritative information from experts, practical advice and support from parents, and inspiration from successful adults living with LD and ADHD. We also affirm and celebrate the talents and achievements of young people with learning differences through the annual Smart Kids Youth Achievement Awards.

CADRE

Initially funded in 1998, CADRE serves as the National Center on Appropriate Dispute Resolution in Special Education on behalf of the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education.

CADRE assists states with implementation of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) procedural safeguards provisions and the development of high-performing dispute resolution systems through the identification and dissemination of exemplary practices related to program design, implementation, evaluation and improvement.

As a member of OSEP’s national TA & D network, CADRE delivers high quality technical assistance, informational support and other services to state education agencies (Part B), early intervention lead agencies (Part C), federally-funded parent centers, local education agencies and early intervention providers, dispute resolution practitioners, family members and other stakeholders.

IDEA Website

This site was created to provide a “one-stop shop” for resources related to IDEA and its implementing regulations. It provides searchable versions of IDEA and the regulations, access to cross-referenced content from other laws (e.g., the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), etc.), video clips on selected topics, topic briefs on selected regulations, links to OSEP’s Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) Network and a Q&A Corner where you can submit questions, and a variety of other information sources.

Please note that this is a legacy site and some information may be outdated. Please visit the OSERS/OSEP website for the current IDEA statute and regulations.
