An Online Celebration of Mother Language Day 2022

“I ka wā mamua, I ka wā mahope.”
Through the Past is the Future.

Hawaiian proverb

The Smithsonian Institution is hosting the online Mother Tongue Film Festival to celebrate cultural and linguistic diversity. The festival will showcase films and filmmakers from around the world, highlighting the critical role languages play in our daily lives and the importance of maintaining languages that are vanishing. For American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians, this is an urgent reality, because their mother languages are the only means to communicate with elders, the wisdom keepers, to learn about and from their collective pasts. These languages express ideas and values on which their cultures are built, and Native mother tongues capture concepts that don’t exist in English.

The festival events and film premieres span from February 17 – March 4, 2022. Check out the event schedule and learn more about the films on offer here.

Webinar | Return to School: Development and Implementation of IEPs

This webinar focuses on important guidance from the U.S. Department of Education, issued on September 30th and entitled Return to School Roadmap: Development and Implementation of IEPs in the LRE.

Have the needs and learning difficulties of individual students changed, given the impact of COVID-19, remote learning, and isolation?

Presenters from OSEP explore these and other questions, including compensatory services and addressing the school-related health needs of returning students.

Multiple TA&D Centers worked collaboratively to identify these resources and to create the videos that focus on addressing the academic needs, communication needs, and the behavior, transition, and mental health needs of students with significant disabilities. Watch the videos, and find out who the collaborating TA&D Centers were, what resources they have available, and strategies that both educators and parents can use to improve the learning of their children with disabilities.

Buzz | Supported Decision Making

As young people with disabilities grow into adulthood, they also grow into many new decision-making responsibilities–money management, living arrangements, and health care. For many, taking charge of their own lives is downright challenging. This is where supported decision-making (SDM) has much to offer. It “allows individuals with disabilities to make choices about their own lives with support from a team of people they choose.” Learn more about SDM in this issue of the Buzz and how it can be used to give people with disabilities a “voice and a choice” in how they live their lives.
