Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language Is Known As

Mandy asks…

Are schools required to provide American Sign Language Interpreters for deaf students?

I worked with a student with autism for a few months in school. He was also deaf. He had an interpreter and other staff who knew quite a bit of sign language. But, I have been told there is a deaf student at an elementary school in my school district without an interpreter. (This child is also mentally handicapped.) Are there any laws, state or federal, that require schools to hire interpreters for deaf or hearing impaired students?

admin answers:

If the child has an IEP or 504 (which they should) then absolutely the law says the school MUST hire one however if the parent doesn’t know this and request it then the school isn’t required to do it. They are only required to provide what is writen in the IEP. If the mother wants her child to have that she needs to call a meeting and submit a request for an interpreter in writing. Then the school has to give reasons why they are saying no and the mom can get a due process hearing if they refuse.

This is all part of “IDEA” which stands for Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Children with disabilities are protected under this law and the school must provide anything the child needs in order to get a free appropriate education.

Susan asks…

Is 50 years old too old to start a special education job?

I am 48 and thinking about going for Special Education program. However, friends told me that sped jobs are exhausting. Do you know anyone who worked as special education teacher AND retired on this job? I worried if what my friends said was true, then I might work a few years and burn out before I retire. Is it better if I go for Mild and Moderate disabilities such as ADHD and Autism?

admin answers:

What about learning sign language and becoming a deaf interpreter in a public school system?

Once in awhile I will look at the job postings in public school districts. The deaf interpreter can make $15.00 to $30.00 an hour working with a student who is hearing impaired.

Plus if you feel that working with children & adolescents is difficult. You may enjoy working with adults who are deaf or hearing impaired. There is also an opportunity to be a freelance interrupter. (meaning you can sign for who ever you want!)

Steven asks…

How do I potty train my 18 months old daughter?

My mother bought me a new potty for my daughter a few days ago and said it’s time. I don’t know what to do. I’m hearing impaired and I won’t be able to hear when she says “pee” or something. How will I know whenever she needs to go? I also have pullups for her just in case.

admin answers:

If you’re deaf you should be showing her sign language right? Teach her the sign for bathroom and once she learns that, and knows how to pull her pants up and down and is not having as frequent wet diapers, THEN it will be time.

Don’t rush it because if she’s not ready it will be a huge pain! Just wait until she’s really showing the signs.

Having a potty now isn’t bad though, let her sit on it and get comfortable with the idea. I bought my daughter a potty when she was 18 months and she’s no where near being ready but she does sit on it and say “pee pee” so I know she’s sort of getting the idea.

Good luck!

Your Questions About For Those Tears I Died

Laura asks…

How and what did Eleanor Rossevelt die from?

I heard that she died from cancer. A serious blood disease or bone marrow if you know please tell me soon.

Ps I need to know asap because my report is due in a week.

admin answers:

In 1960, at age 76, Roosevelt’s health began to fail her. While leaving a hair appointment in New York City she was knocked to the ground by a car, taking a heavy fall that tore several ligaments.* Coupled with the increasing signs of the heavy toll her active life seemed to finally be taking on her she was finally persuaded by family and friends to seek the advice of a specialist. Not long after she was was diagnosed with aplastic anemia, though at the time it was misdiagnosed as another form of anemia and thus mistreated. During the course of her treatment her immune system was weakened and she developed bone marrow tuberculosis, recurring from a primary 1919 infection. The original infection occurred during her trip to France with FDR following the end of WWI. Complaining of severe “pain in her side”, after an initial consult with a physician at their hotel who suspected Pleurisy, but feared Tuberculosis as not unlikely, she finally sought the advice of a physician in Paris who misdiagnosed the condition as Pleurisy. Thus the infection went undiagnosed and untreated, only being fully confirmed during the post mortem. Roosevelt died at her Manhattan apartment on the evening of November 7, 1962 at the age of 78.

•it should be noted that Eleanor Roosevelt was also involved in a car accident in August of 1946, “[...]as she was driving down New York’s Saw Mill River Parkway on her return from Hyde Park. Her car collided with two other automobiles. Mrs. Roosevelt’s face was smashed against the steering wheel. Four other people were also injured.” None of the injuries were life-threatening and no charges were brought against Mrs. Roosevelt (though she did loose her license for 31 months) who admitted to having fallen asleep at the wheel, before drifting into the oncoming traffic. It was in this accident that she lost her two front teeth and had them replaced by white caps much straighter then her former, famously poertruding ones and not during the 1960 incident. (quote from a TIMEc article)

Susan asks…

Why are christians obsessed with the idea that jesus died for our sins?

They introduce the idea that “Jesus died for our sins so we can be forgiven” like it’s some kind of compelling idea. They get really serious and whisper when they say it.

So many people in the world die every day, many selfless people who died so other people can live better lives. These people who die know that they won’t come back.

If jesus is god and god put himself on earth knowing that he will end up being god again, then jesus didn’t really have anything to lose when he was killed. Since your god is timeless, then that pain he experienced was nothing.

admin answers:

1 John 3:16 This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty. At the time crucifixion was the “worst” death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified.

Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied…Each nail
was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There’s a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the Wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself, so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that
impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs for long because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back and using his legs just to continue to breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds.

From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side…But do we remember the many wounds made to his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped and a nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. And…before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns (two to three inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.

He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds.The human adult body contains about 5 liters (just over a gallon) of blood. Jesus poured all 5 liters of his blood;
He had three nails hammered into His body; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond
that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest.. All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you may have free access to God. So that your sins can be “washed” away. All of them, with no exception! Don’t ignore this.

My faith in the One who died for me

Mark asks…

My pointe shoes died on me after about a month-should I get gaynor mindens?

the pair that died were extremely stiff. I have really strong legs, & ankles, and arches for a dancer who’s 13. Are gaynor mindens fine for me? I also have very wide toes, with really narrow heels. will gaynor mindens work well with my foot shape?

admin answers:

I wear them and they’re great shoes, but absolutely make certain they fit right. Unlike every other shoe out there they will not change according to wear and tear: no stretching, no softening of the shank or vamp, and be very careful with them. Don’t let the shoe do all the work.

Your Questions About For Those I Love I Will Sacrifice

Joseph asks…

Is there a verse in the Bible that says how loving God means sacrificing for him and placing his desires first?

I always just assumed that to love God means we put him first, and sacrifice for him if necessary, because that’s what Jesus did for us.

But I‘m just wondering if there’s anything in the Bible that actually SAYS this is what our love for God is supposed to be like.

Thanks!

How is love and sacrifice represented in Pride and Prejudice?

What is the impact of love and sacrifice on the main characters? What is the author the Pride and Prejudice suggesting about love and sacrifice?
What would be a good thesis statement for these questions?

admin answers:

A basic theme of the story, one could argue, is that love conquers all. Thinking about it in terms of that particular society, Darcy and Elizabeth shouldn’t have ended up together. He was well off, she was poor. He was upper class, had family connections, and was high up in society. She had no connections, had a family full of “silly” sisters and parents, and wasn’t too much in the company of high society. But, despite all the odds against them- family, wealth, their individual pride and prejudices, they ended up together. And why? Because they fought for each other. They fought for a true love that they both deserved.

Darcy sacrifices his pride by paying for Lydia’s shotgun wedding with Wickham. Though he despises the man, he patches up the marriage in order to protect Lydia, which ultimately protects Elizabeth, because then her family isn’t tainted with the scandal. We think Darcy has overcome his pride when he first proposes to Elizabeth, but he hasn’t done that completely yet: he tells her, rather condescendingly, that he wishes he didn’t like her because it’s imprudent for a man of his connection to love someone so beneath him. Ouch, can you say mean much?

Elizabeth, on the other hand, gets the benefit of this match in its social and financial aspects. You’d think she doesn’t give up much, but she does. She too sacrifices her pride, admitting that her first impressions of Mr. Darcy were very wrong, and that he was a much better man than she gave him credit for. She also admits to falling under Wickham’s spell and feels bad that she fell for his facade.

That’s what I have to say on it, really. Hope it helps.

i need to loss at least 10lbs. i’m 37yrs, 5ft. 130lbs i have been contanstly exercising ( running, race walking ) everyday for 3 months now. i have also lessen my portions in my meals and cut off rice.

admin answers:

1) See your doctor. You sound like you may have an eating disorder. You’re fixated on a number and a “bulky tummy” and you say you’re “desperate.”

2) Muscle weighs more than fat. When you consult with your doctor and lose weight in a healthy manner you don’t use a scale. They measure your body fat. Body fat is all that really matters.

3) You lost that 10 pounds a long time ago and don’t realize it. It was replaced by what is known as lean muscle.
