A guide to help you cope with the emotional aspects of pregnancy loss. This was given to INCIID in 1995 by a nurse who experienced the loss of a full-term baby just after she was born. Although it is an older article, the sentiments are timeless and comforting in the knowledge you are not alone.Please give this to anyone you know who has lost a pregnancy. This article is also excellent information for friends, families and loved ones of close to anyone who has lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or just after birth. The more people who understand what to say or more importantly what not to say, the better off those who have lost a child will be.

Four Part IEP Series starts Wed. January 17, 2018 

One day you left the comfort of your world and went to your first special education meeting. No matter what your background, education, profession, trade, or any other circumstance in your life, that meeting changed your world as fast as you can say IEP.Nothing in your experience prepared you to take on the countless policies, procedures, laws, or the language of special education. Nothing in your experience prepared you for the role you would assume. Nothing in your experience prepared you for the conversation during that meeting.

We are going to explore some ideas  that I hope will change the way you see your role and what I think is a more productive way to carry on conversations about a child's special education program. These ideas germinated and grew during our years as a practicing advocate and from exchanging experiences and insights with special education professionals from both "sides" of the IEP table. Came meet Brice Palmer and discover some things you don't know about IEP's.  (more)
