May 21, 2015 — Just yesterday the ALSDE released a statement that all changes to the present rules have been pulled off the agenda and are no longer being discussed. In view of this statement we no longer feel the necessity to rally the parents for the June 11th meeting since they are no longer proposing these changes.
I would like to thank each and everyone that has signed the petition and prepared to show up at the meeting. This could not have been done alone. It took each and everyone doing what they could to protect the rights of our loved ones on the spectrum. I would also like to thank the ALSDE for doing what is right and pray that they will not consider making changes like these in the future.
Special Thanks to Alabama School Connections, for helping mediate and communicate with the ALSDE. I do hope that we all become more conscious of what is going on in our state and learn that we can never sleep. YOU did it folks. Thank you and once again congratulations for standing up when the need arose. Any news that you get in the future regarding our loved ones in the future please let me know at Alabama Autism and if there is anything that I or we can do to make things better our primary concern is to help the lives of all on the Autism Spectrum.
Have a great day and enjoy the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Job well done! I am working on another more detailed "Thank You" and response coming soon.
Meanwhile here is ADAPs Take on how this all developed. Special Thanks to Nancy Anderson
