Subject: Monthly Webinar Video and Q&A from January 4, 2008

Source: Heidi Atkins Lieberman, Assistant Commissioner

Intended Audience: Directors of Special Education, Special Education Coordinators, Superintendents

Date: January 11, 2008

The video and Q&A of the January 4, 2008, webinar is now available at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/mnthlywebstrmHAL.html. The topics included VR eligibility, NIMAS/NIMAC, preschool relationship to the "private school" issue, caseloads, child complaints, and transition liaisons.

For those of you who had been hoping for an answer to the question regarding LD eligibility (full scale IQ and use of the General Ability
Index) as promised in the December webinar, I apologize again for forgetting that I was to cover it in the January webinar. Rather than make you wait for the February webinar for an answer, I have posted the answer to the question in the Q&A for the January webinar. See question #4.

Please note that the video of each webinar is usually posted on our web site shortly after the webinar; you do not need to wait until you receive the SELS announcement about the posting before viewing the video, as the SELS announcement is really to announce that the Q&A has been posted.

The next webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, February 6, 2008, from
11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. A reminder will be sent closer to this date along with the web address needed to access the webinar.

If you would like to submit a question or topic for a future webinar, please send to: lina.browner@dese.mo.gov (indicate "Webinar" in the subject line of the email). Please ensure your questions are not specific individual children questions, but rather are more systemic in nature.

Thank you so much for your participation and feedback.
