Wow. To *me*, this site potentially [i]is a wealth of pertinent[/i] information. I could be wrong. I could kick myself for not taking the time to comment. ([i]ooch[/i]) Maybe I was just overwhelmed with the amount of information *I found*.
[i]I searched for the [b]Position Statements[/b] immediately.[/i]
*Personally?* I think the School Psychologist is a *key player* in situations involving IEP's, IHP, 504's, etc.......... Even in the best of situations. Monitorability thing. They might bring some very valuable items to the table, so to speak.
Maybe it's just me. I could be wrong.
I mean, I was like: "Wow" (did I mention that?)

and I haven't even begun to explore the rest of the site. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
[b]Thank you synthia, you're a joy and a treasure.[/b] Thank you for this link and the many others you bring to my attention. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Please take my question at face value. It was not an attempt to criticize Synthia for posting the link.
I looked at the position statments (quickly, I admit), and at first glance, I didn't see anything that jumped out as supportive to the 504 process.
Perhaps some things that could assist with IEP's, but *personally* I wasn't looking for that.
Hence my question....I figured that if someone else had done more digging, they could share specifics.

I'm not, I just really wanted Synthia to know how much I appreciate the links she posts. I have been amiss in letting her know. It jumped out at me. (me being amiss in letting her know). Didn't mean for you to take it that way.

Did you see the [b]Position Statement on Children's Rights[/b]? (for example, from the Position Statements)
I also noted in this section "Basic Rights" "Principles of Education" and "Goals of Education".
I mean, would one say a child with a LTFA child has [i]the right[/i] to access an [i]education[/i] [b]safely[/b]?
to quote:
"[i]Combining our beliefs regarding children's basic rights with the stated principles and goals of education, NASP will join with others to help "build a world in which the human rights of all girls and boys are realized - a time of play and learning, in which they are loved, respected and cherished, [b]their safety and well-being are paramount,[/b] and they are enabled and supported to develop in health, peace and dignity." (NGO Alternative Text Response to the Third Revision of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, 2001.) NASP will work at the federal, state, and local levels to promote legislation that ensures that the rights of all children are protected and defended. Active collaboration with international, national and state organizations that strive to preserve the basic rights and education of children is critical to improving the welfare of all children, both in this country and around the world."[/i]
(bold added) [i]but the whole statement thrills me[/i].

*I* looked at the [b]Position Statement on Inclusive Programs for Students With Disabilities[/b].
I read it while thinking of the statement made to me by a school staff member:
[i]"You should homeschool your child"[/i].
I looked at [b]The Role of the School Psychologist[/b].
I think of the potential collaberation between a School RN and The School Psychologist [i]and other team members[/i].
[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I mean, does it behoove me to know Individual Roles and Expectations? I mean, I have a *good idea*, working in healthcare, what other Individual's roles might be (I could be wrong) but I like the reinforcement *seeing it in print* provides. I mean, is the NASP (National Association of School Psychologists) to School Psychologists what the NASN (National Association of School Nurses) is to School Nurses?

The school RN and the school psychologist are both part of my sons 504 team. I can't even begin to tell you how supportive they have been. Every suggestion made by the RN was countered by the s. psych asking "and he will be safe?" They have gone beyond what I expected.

I just had a "light bulb moment".
I think we all completely understand, nutternomore. It's a puzzle, and we're searching for puzzle pieces. Some bring possible pieces to the table (thank you synthia) and we see if/how we can find the fit (thank you MommaBear).
I definitely saw how my school RN's professional qualifications raised the standards addressing Mariah's LTFAs. That puzzle piece and fit was clear to me. While I appreciated our school [i]counselor's[/i] participation on the "team", I didn't think of her profession bringing standards to the table in the same way.
She is a school counselor, masters in Ed Psychology, [i]not a psychologist[/i]. However, the school district provided a [i]school psychologist[/i] to do Mariah's learning disability assessment. Beginning to contemplate how her role may[i]raise[/i] my expectations re care.

Yes Gail W,
And like a puzzle, you can start to see the
[b] big picture[/b] even before you have all the pieces! [Dh]
Love this site

I agree, synthia.
Our school does not have a school psychologist, but does have a school counselor. Here's a similar professional organization that would apply to my situation:
[url="http://www.schoolcounselor.org/content.cfm?L1=1000&L2=32"]http://www.schoolcounselor.org/content.cfm?L1=1000&L2=32[/url]
It's the [b]American School Counselor Association[/b]. I noticed their position statement on "Special Needs Students".
