Now Your Turn!
Create a concept map using inspiration, a similar app, or paper to show how the following concepts relate to one another, the pieces of legislation discussed in the presentation, and to OT practice with children.
Title 1
Section 504
State testing
Go to the following websites (or the website appropriate for your state of interest) and answer the following questions about eligibility under IDEA.
What Else?
Go to the following link and choose one of the Supreme Court cases discussed, then find an article that discusses the personal impact of the case or a 'where are they now' story.
As a group, create a PEOP model to highlight the impact of the ruling on the student and discuss as a group how the ruling impacts OT services in schools.
Why Do We Care?
What If?
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act was signed into law in 1974 - it's basically HIPAA for schools.
#1 Jaydon
Missouri IDEA Part C Eligibility
Missouri IDEA Part B Eligibility
#2 Leon
Jaydon is an 8 month old child who was born at 40 weeks and had an APGAR score of 7 at 5 min. Since then, however, he has not developed typically. Last week, the doctor officially diagnosed Jaydon with hypotonia and failure to thrive. She referred Jaydon to Early Intervention. On the assessment, Jaydon was identified as having a developmental age equivalence of 5 months because he is not yet sitting and can only roll from prone to supine toward his right side. Can Jaydon qualify for services under IDEA?
Leon is a 3rd grader whose teacher is very worried about him. He performs well in many areas, but when it comes time for reading, Leon will not stay in his seat. He starts to wiggle back and forth, then he finds every excuse possible to leave his seat. Any sound, movement or visual clutter will cause him to lose focus. He has no formal diagnosis and an average IQ, but he's only reading at a Kindergarten level (more than 2 STD below his peers)!
His teacher wants to know how he can get OT - what do you tell her?
Discuss as a group, the following hypotheticals:
1. What if a child with spina bifida comes to your school and they use a wheelchair to get around, but perform average for all academic reasons. Would they ever get OT? How?
2. What if a student's aunt is the gym teacher at a school and wants to know how she can modify or adapt the gym class to accommodate her nephew. What should you tell her?
3. What if the government goes haywire and decides to completely erase 2 laws and all their effects from the timeline? (Your choice) What would OT for children look like in that world?
