Shame on YOU justsaying. Kathy is a grandmother. For your information networking is just as important in education as in any other profession.

And the parent who is calling other posters stupid you are ignorant.

Kathy Dykes as FCPS is the same person that is a PM. Recyclying is her hobby and the fact that people now her to be caring in that context proves that you are all just over demanding and needy and care more about your children to the detriment of others.

I will tell u first hand I have tried numerous times to talk with the Super....I believe it would be more likely to talk to Obama. He never returns calls, emails, even handwritten letters. You cannot back down from these ppl, they wait for any reason to pounce. I have heard wonderful things about Woodford and Jessamine. They are not allowed to diagnose your child, a doctor must do that. If they are diagnosing your child then that is a violation of your child's rights and yours.

You are stating the facts about a diagnosis, because even a school psychologist is not allowed to make a diagnosis, therefore, doctor is needed for an official diagnosis but school districts, teachers, SPED administrators and numerous others in the field routinely tell a parent in private what they feel the child should be diagnosed with overall. This IS a violation of the law and procedures guided by federal guidelines just as Candy states!

It is not true that medical doctors know more than educators with decades of experience.

It used to be that the diagnosis of autism was rare.

Some children are just stupid not autistic or ADHD. What they need is vocational training when they grow up not an IEP that aims them toward college.

IDEA has all parents thinking their kids can grow up to be normal and although it is politically incorrect to say it is not true.

FCPS has to think about the kids that will succeed too.

Tanya is the "autism" specialist. What she needs to accept is the parent will always be a better specialist then her. RachelBaker is over the high schools spec Ed. Ed dove takes payments is worth every penny. Just remember anyone who can be given a disability is nothing bu a money amount to te state and school.
You hit the nail on the head with the money and more $$.

I learned how 2 face Tonya is and will always be. Went to her for help... Knew her through other place. PRIVATELY. She has no ideal or cares what the word confidential means

Thanks.
I am really worried about all this I am hearing about FCPS.
Is the new superintendent going to replace these people soon?
Is it just better to avoid Lexington? Which surrounding county would be better?
No these people have been there for way to long and are probably even tenured.

I can't believe how many people have fled fayette for jess. Co. That I knew. Some choose to stay and dare to dream.

OK, WHAT DOES RECYCKING HAVE TO DO WITH SPECIAL EDUCATION. YOU ARE JUST STUPID AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN STUPID. AS YOU DARN WELL THINK THAT WHEN IT COMES TO MY KID AND OTHERS WITH AUTISM AND SPECIAL NEEDS YOU DARN WELL THINK THAT WE ARE GOING TO DO WHAT THE LAW SAYS WE SHOULD HAVE.
YOU HAVE NO BUSINQESS BEING A THERAPIST AT ALL AND YOU ARE PROBABLY THE LAZY ONE WHO CHOOSE NOT TO PROVIDE THE REQUIRED SERVICES TO MY CHILD THAT WERE IN THE IEP BECAUSE YOU WERE LAZY. NEEDY, AND ALL THE OTHER CESCRIPTIONS.
I WILL TELL YOU WHAT YOU AND KATHY NEED FULLTIME JOBS AT PEDDLARS MALL AND THE SO CALLED NETWORKING IS JUST RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY
WHEN IT COMES TO OUR SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS YOU DARN RIGHT WE WILL FIGHT FOR OUR CHIKD EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
I REALLY DO SUGGEST YOU GET AN ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT OR SELL YOUR JUNK AND RECYCLE

Just stupid. I wish I knew who you were, id have your job and yiur license in a minute by your comments. You are so apethetic and a shame to what ever label you are giving yourself.
Your of all of stupid. You think you know medical doctors no you don't have a clue
no one in the school ever has any business labeling, diagnoising or anything that violates Federal law.

Please do all a favor and stay in the recycling and junk world of peddlers mall

I never said Kathy Dykes was a bad person. I said Tanya Sturgill thinks because she has the job of autism specialist that she can tell me more about my child then I know. The involved parents are the specialist, none of them would last a week straight in our shoes. At the end of the day they go home and go about their lives while ours are the same day in day out. I have been robbed of my child graduating from middle school because promises by Tanya and others were never put in place. I have complained for yrs that the education our children in se receive is the basics that's it. I was told my son could not be in band because no other teacher could stay after school with him. Then u find out that the lady over se resource has her son in the band, and he is in se. Fayette County Sucks and so does the majority of the staff that is over special needs and se. They suck and I have told each and everyone of them exactly how I felt and have NO regrets.

Thank you all for being candid. My son is also autistic and is learning to play the trumpet. It would be a huge blow to his self esteem if they refused to let him be in the band.

Between your advice, and other internet information on FCPS special education, I convinced my husband that we should relocate to Jessamine County instead of trying to find a house in Lexington. He is willing to commute.

I have really focused in on this issue. I heard that Kathy Dykes may be leaving but that is just a rumor. Even if she is leaving, what if Tanya Sturgill gets her job. I am sure Ed Dove is a great advocate based on the advice from this forum and other forums, but I would rather avoid the the expense and trouble all together.

I am going to start a new forum now asking for advice on Jessamine county schools. If you have any leads can you leave them for me there? I am going to stop following this forum.

Thank you and god bless.

I have heard west is the best. I work with a lady and her son has autism. The football coach allowed her son to be an actual part of the team, not just a bench warmer. She said that west was so involved in furthering her sons education and socialization. Good luck to you. I want to stress that Kathy Dykes was resistant at first to what I was saying about my son but after she did her own research on him she has been very helpful. Determination is the key. If Tanya was to get that position I will be moving.

Agreed. You don't give someone a pass just because they recycle. Also isn;t recycling something you do for free. selling old junk used to just mean making a buck. By therapists logic used car salemen are the best recylcers. Not that i have anything against that way of making a living, used car salesmen don't get up every morning and think how to steal money from and harass handicapped children today.

Yeah that looks like her but its clearly manipulated to make her look younger I wonder by who? Online flirting only goes so far, when they meet you they can see your real face.
Pathetic but not surprising.
Nothing wrong with Tanya

Can't sleep tonight; I'm so upset about Boston. Surfing the web.

I am surprised by these posts about Tanya Sturgill who is very knowledgable, cares about kids, and a pleasure to work with. The children even sense this.

Dykes on the other hand is just a bureaucrat. Just stay under her radar, because she will cut away the services her own people recommend. Not surprising, this is true everywhere I've worked.

What's all this talk about her hobbies and dating life in all caps no less? Not very classy. I acknowledge she is disliked but people you are way out of bounds.

Fayette County schools are very good, there will be problems with services everywhere and obstructionist bureaucrats into every district. No need to live in JC. There are affordable homes in Lexington too.

We have to remember that the health and safety of our children is most important. Don't get too upset about the small stuff. Give us a chance, things will work out.

if your child is grade school age, Veterans Park is our best school and the neighborhood is affordable. Any teacher there will understand your child's needs so you won't have to worry about confrontational IEPs. Just let your teacher handle Kathy and you will be ok. Do your research, a few FC schools still need improvement.

Remember the Boston victims in church this Sunday. God bless.

Hmm. focusing on the kids that "will succeed."

This sounds like Dykes and Silverman. By their own admission they did some creative accounting with the federal money for special education to use on regular other projects.

Read http://www.kentucky.com/2009/12/18/1064295/fa... and judge for yourself.

I wonder were the 500 dollars to teachers went. Did they buy crayons or Ipads? Did any money get to Special Ed kids at all?
