Buzz | Dating, Romance, and Sexuality

The theme of this Buzz arises in recognition of upcoming Valentine’s Day, February 14th. Dating, romance, and sexuality are challenging, exciting, and on the plate for everyone, youthful and old, disabled or not. So let’s talk about it. Understand our normality. Prepare and protect. Accept what’s naturally part of us all.

This Buzz shares resources that shine a light on romance, sex, and dating for those with disabilities—and the rest of us, too!

Buzz | Kick Off 2023

This Buzz kicks off 2023 by bringing you a good handful of IEP resources to add to your collection, as well as two policy-related items.

Buzz | Video Libraries

Videos and webinars are good resources for professional development and for sharing with families. In this Buzz, we spotlight video collections on high-priority topics that you may find useful in the coming weeks and certainly in the coming year. Be well, enjoy the festivities ahead, thank you for all the hard and heartfelt work you’ve done in 2022. We’ll see you next year!

Buzz | Children’s Health

This Buzz focuses primarily on health issues such as RSV, children and the holidays, guidelines for medical care of adults with Down Syndrome, and how racism affects children’s development. We end with a resource connecting family engagement with inclusive technology practices.

Buzz | Potpourri of Resources

This Buzz brings you a diversity of resources to use in your work with families. Topics include culturally competent transition planning, the Dear Colleague letter on addressing the impacts on children and youth that losing a parent or caregiver has, and information for parents that will help them work with their child’s school.

Buzz | Children’s Mental Health

This issue of the Buzz brings you multiple resources in English and Spanish that you can share with the families you serve. First is the latest information on our children’s mental health, recommendations for treating symptoms of trauma, and guidance on where to get help, supports and services, and the school’s role in addressing mental health issues in students. The second half focuses on the upcoming holiday season and the issue of sensory processing disorders in children, as well as the most common food allergies, their symptoms and treatment, and how to prepare for eating out and dining in.

Buzz | Resources of the TA&D Network

Within the Parent Center network, we all work hard to develop resources and share our expertise with families, youth with disabilities, and professionals. The same is true of the Technical Assistance and Dissemination (TA&D) network, which is also funded by OSEP. While centers within the TA&D tend to focus their services on building capacity at the state level or within a specific topic area, the resources they offer to families can be very useful. We’ve highlighted several in this Buzz, as well as the centers that produced them.

Buzz | Back in the School Saddle

As the school year really gets going, it’s a good time to revisit several resources that will prove useful: talking about state assessments with parents, OSEP’s numerous reopening resources, and webinars about developing IEPs or providing compensatory services to children with disabilities. We’re also pleased to share with you two mental health resources relevant to schools and families.
