Indiana Department of Education Special Education Needs Assessment Survey

The Indiana Department of Education has released results from their Needs Assessment Survey related to Special Education. The information from this survey will be used primarily by those entities that are interested in creating a competitive proposal to become a resource center in a statewide network of resource providers. An agency would likely reference this data to support their rationale for their project design, activities, and deliverables, targeting one or more of the areas in their proposal. The Needs Assessment Survey was completed by 97 different corporations and 8 Coop Groups representing a total of 134 completed surveys. The respondents were from a mix of Metro (13%), Suburban (30%), and Town and Rural (46%) corporations; and came from all of the all corners of the State, with 75% of completed surveys coming from outside of central Indiana. Allocation of IDEA Funds Every General Purpose was ranked as the most appropriate allocation of funds on at least one survey ·

Arc of Indiana Conference 10/1

Family Voices is sharing this information as an opportunity for families and individuals with disabilities to give input on issues of importance to them. "This year's Arc conference theme, “Our Voice, Our Vision, Our Future," finally gives US - the people that are affected by the rules, regulations, stigmas and assumptions made regarding disability issues a chance to speak up, be counted and vote on what matters, in real time. If you want to finally have a real vote, please consider attending this conference. Go to for more information or to register. Conference fees are greatly reduced to ensure that all can attend. Coming together and speaking as one voice ensures that children like my son will get the services they need, when they need it , and allow them to grow to be a real part of their community."~ Michelle Robb Register On-Line! conference/default.asp Mail/Fax a Registration Form:
