January is Braille Literacy Month, in honor of the birthday of Louis Braille, who was born on January 4th, 1809. Braille Literacy can be a vital component to independence and employment for people who are blind or visually impaired. Children who are blind or who have low vision have the option to learn Braille at an early age.
The Early Start program, which provides early intervention services, has experienced a decline in referrals since the beginning of the pandemic. Because early intervention is critical for children to achieve the best possible developmental outcomes, the Department of Developmental Services and partners are working together to share information and resources.
The North Region SELPA staff and all member Districts stand united with students, staff, local communities, and everyone across the U.S. who has experienced racial bias, violence, or discrimination. I challenge myself and those around me to go further with our actions to stand up to bigotry, hatred, and intolerance. I hope when we look back on 2020 we see how the focus on two viruses (that of Covid-19 and that of systemic racism) caused a tipping point toward making our society a healthier one. In the meantime, we take action as individuals, schools, districts, and communities to refuse (and support others to refuse) racism in our educational mission, because it starts with the words and actions we use to support children. Our influence and responsibility are huge because children look to us for models on "how to be." -- Katy Babcock, North Region SELPA Director.
