The survey will examine whether parents are treated as equal partners in their children's education. We ask questions about whether the rights of students with disabilities and their parents protected throughout the special education process, including IEP meetings, decisions about special education, evaluations and eligibility, and Due Process and Impartial Hearings. We also ask about inclusion and whether children with disabilities receive the education they need, or whether they are deprived of important services. We will be using your answers to compile a report about the experiences of parents and children with disabilities and these issues. See the survey Privacy Policy http://www.advocacyinstitute.org/IDEASURVEY/policy.shtml for more information. All disabilities are welcome! The survey is not limited to the disabilities on which the sponsoring organizations <blockedhttp://www.advocacyinstitute.org/IDEASURVEY/sponsors.shtml> focus. We are studying these issues as they affect all children with disabilities and special needs. We also have surveys for all members of the community.

Mean What You Say and Say What You Mean with ACS Couples Communication Seminars It is no secret that men and women communicate differently. Sometimes these differences can lead to huge misunderstandings which can cause friction in a relationship. Whether you have been married for just a little while or for several years, communication plays a vital role in all aspects of your relationship. Army Community Service understands the impact that good and poor communication can have on a relationship, and is inviting couples to participate in a Couples’ Communication Seminar taking place April 18 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Family Resource Center. Using curriculum from several different programs and resources with a primary influence from the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP) out of the University of Denver, the seminar facilitators like Marianne Erdman, are able to give couples a different perspective as to what might really be going on when communication is lacking in a relationship. The workshops include power point presentations, DVDs, videos and natural, frank group discussions. Marianne states that workshop goers are willing to discuss their situations because “whatever goes on in the workshop stays in the workshop.” The Couples’ Communication Seminars are open to all couples, other than those involved in domestic violence, and usually are a good mix of all ranks and marital lengths. This diversity allows for the couples that are struggling in their marriage, couples that are getting accustomed to newlywed life, or couples that want to ensure they are on the same page to learn off each other by sharing what does and does not work for them. Hitting on why communication is so important in relationships, Ms. Erdman pointed out,

“that if couples come away from the workshop really understanding that good communication is the real key to getting your relationship to not only survive, but to thrive, then the seminar accomplished what it is designed to do.” Limited child care is available for those with children. In order to utilize the child care, the child must be registered with Child, Youth and School Services (CYSS). Registration is required for the seminars and interested parties should call (270) 412-5500 or 798-2045 for more information. Baby and Me Lapsit at R.F.

Joe Swing Facility Offers New Recreational and Event Location Many places on military installations are named after important and prominent people who have influenced history; Joe Swing Recreational Facility and Park is named after Major General Joseph Swing. Swing was in command of the 11th Airborne Division, nicknamed “The Angles,” from February 1943 until January 1948. As a tribute to Maj. Gen. Joseph Swing’s accomplishments for the 11th Airborne Division, it was only fitting to name such a beautiful area of Fort Campbell after a great man. Located just inside gate one behind Richardson Army Lodging, you will find one of the best kept secrets of Fort Campbell - a true place of peace and tranquility, Joe Swing Park. The park is shaded by numerous trees and has stone picnic benches atop a small hill overlooking the rock quarry. Although the rock quarry still remains on the Fort Campbell off-limits list for swimming, climbing, and playing in/on, there is now another reason to enjoy the serenity of the natural landscape. In the fall of 2009 construction began on a state of the art facility located inside the Joe Swing Park area. With construction completed in the spring of 2010, this beautiful facility is now available to reserve for your events. The breathtaking view overlooking the lake makes this perfect place for a wedding and/or wedding reception, military Hail and Farewell or retirement party, Family reunion, or any other special function. This large A-Frame structure will seat two hundred people inside with additional seating available on the patio that looks out over the picturesque rock quarry. The Joe Swing Recreational Facility functionality can serve many purposes as it is outfitted with a state of the art audio and visual support system and limited kitchen equipment. Tables and chairs are provided and available for use by those who rent the facility. Patrons have the option of bringing in their own food and beverages in a pot luck style, or may utilize a catering service. If a catered meal is desired, coordination with Cole Park Commons Eagle Catering is required. Cole Park Commons Eagle Catering has a wide variety of food and beverage options for you to choose from and is the only approved caterer permitted in Joe Swing. Whether you are having a sweet sixteen, wedding, wedding reception, hail and farewell, graduation, quinceanera, anniversary, bar mitzvah, or any other special occasion, Joe Swing Recreational Facility can accommodate your needs.

Families Can Get United Through Reading One of the most difficult parts of a deployment for Families and Soldiers alike can be longing to see a Family member’s face or hear their voice when they are miles apart. Families often look for new and creative ways to stay in touch with their loved ones, and United Through Reading gives them a resource to help melt away the miles. United Through Reading is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989 that unites Families facing physical separation by facilitating the bonding experience of reading aloud together. The United Through Reading Military Program provides a meaningful opportunity for powerful emotional connections that help relieve that stress of separation by having deploying service members read aloud to children via DVD. In 2006, the USO joined forces with United Through Reading. The USO at Fort Campbell can provide pre-recording opportunities. The service member reads a book while being recorded on a DVD and sends the DVD home to the child. The child then watches the DVD and follows along with the book if it is available. While the child watches and follows along with the DVD, a parent or guardian captures the child’s reaction in an email, video, or picture; and sends it back to the deployed service member. The process is repeated as often as possible throughout the time of separation. If you are interested in having the United Through Reading Military Program available to you throughout the deployment, please contact the USO Fort Campbell Director, Stacia Holland Sparrows, by email at SHolland@uso.org or via phone at (571) 236-9118. USO volunteer teams can provide filming opportunities and USO Program Managers can provide command briefs, training seminars, a library/DVD starter kit, and ongoing support.

CYSS Now Offering Strong Beginnings Child, Youth and School Services (CYSS) is now offering a program that prepares your Pre-K aged child to become acclimated to the world of kindergarten. Strong Beginnings is a Pre-K program designed to prepare children to be successful when entering school. Curriculum focuses on the social, emotional, and physical development of children. Equipping your PreK child with the basic academics and “kindergarten classroom etiquette”

and skills to enhance their “school readiness” can be a crucial difference in a child who has participated in the Strong Beginnings program and one who has not. This part day program is offered Monday through Friday at 3301 Indiana Avenue at two different times, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., and 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. The cost for the program is based on total family gross income and will be determined upon registration.
