Subject: Welcome to the LD OnLine forums

Dear LD OnLine Community:

Welcome to our new LD OnLine Web site and forums. We hope you are enjoying the new site.

We know there are some changes in the new forums, and we've heard your concerns. We recognize that the new format may take some time go get used to, but we are trying very hard to include all of the functions you are all accustomed to.

Here are some answers to the questions we have received:

1) We removed the "posts since last visit" link because it wasn't working correctly. As soon as we figure out what's going on with that, we'll reinstate it.

2) Posts are not limited by length. Quick reply means that you can reply quickly, without having to go to another screen. If you prefer to have the regular post message interface, click the words “advanced options” above the quick reply text box. Or, to start a new thread, you can click on the New Topic button in the upper right side of each main category page, next to the page numbers.

3) We managed to import all of our archives, so you should still be able to go back to posts created before we switched over

4) We are working on implementing a search function specifically for the forums, and will alert you all when we launch it.

Please post your questions and feedback as replies to this message or click the email button at the end of this post. We may not be able to answer every question immediately, but will address common concerns by updating this post.

Please know that we are working diligently to make the forums fully functional and easy for you to use. Thank you all for your patience and for being a part of our community.

Best wishes,
LD OnLine

our director has just given us yet another form to fill out, the SOP or summary of performance.

i cannot understand why we need to rewrite what is already in the iep. our seniors meet with DVR on a monthly basis and most have completed their aps and are on the waiting list during their junior years. our dvr rep is included in all IEP meetings, annual and re-evals and receives a copy of the full IEPteam. the rep coordinates post high school assistance, and uses the IEP for their recommendations.

the I-11 addresses present level of performance
the I-13 addresses transition issues, including the new post-secondary goals
the I-14 addresses accomodations

so why are we taking time away from our real purpose, working with kids, to complete more paperwork? What happened to the paperwork reduction act?

I have noticed that many people who post with complaints or questions forget to leave out key information such as location (city and state).

Also PLEASE spell out the acronym first then use the acronym such as learning disabled, and then write LD. This will help those of us who are not familiar with your particular disability or issue.

Can you PLEASE if possible post that bit of information so that others can have a frame of reference location wise concerning your particular situation?

Thanks a ton!
