The current SE-PAC advocacy agenda includes the following areas of concern:
- Universal Design and other specific inclusion initiatives that are good for students with disabilities (PBIS, Leveling Up / de-tracking, RtI)
- Disproportionate disciplinary rates of students with disabilities and particularly African American boys with disabilities
- Racial equity in referral to the office of student services for behavioral concerns
- Racial equity in placement of students with disabilities
- Quality of Services in Substantially Separate Programs
- Inappropriate referrals to Sheltered English Immersion for immigrant students with autism and language based learning disabilities.
- Specific concerns around services for students with dyslexia, including early screening and the research-based requirement of providing Orton-Gillingham 1:1 to students with disabilities. Research has shown that Reading Recovery is counter-productive for students with language based learning disabilities.
We want to make the system stronger – not just for our children, but to improve learning for all children
