Dear (insert Assembly Education Committee member's name) :                                                                   


As you know, SB210 passed the Senate floor. On behalf of the California Association of the Deaf (CAD), I urge you to lend support to SB210 and vote for it.

Basically, SB210 requires the state’s Department of Education to assess, monitor, and track the language development of Deaf and levitra without prescription online hard of hearing (DHH) children with an IFSP (Individual Family Service Plan) or an IEP (Individual Education Plan). We support SB210 because, currently, a significant proportion of approximately 4,000 Deaf children between of the ages of 0-5 have minimal to http://morethantoast.org/daily-levitra no language instruction and arrive at kindergarten with inadequate and delayed language development. This makes it extremely difficult for them to achieve academic success and social and emotional growth. It is time to end this tragic statewide epidemic with accountability.                                                                           


SB210 enforces language benchmarks in ASL and English during each Deaf and Hard of Hearing child’s first five years to ensure they are on track to be academically and socially ready for Kindergarten. We all support this bill because we want children to be academically and socially ready for Kindergarten at the age of five. Deaf children have the same capability for learning language as their hearing peers BUT they must be provided the support and access they need during the critical period for language development that takes place from infancy through early childhood.               


The delays caused by language deprivation are a common problem that is not addressed by the various professionals working with Deaf and hard of hearing infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families. Language acquisition is a basic human right to ensure that all Deaf babies and joannelovesscience.com toddlers have full access to morethantoast.org acquiring a language and experience the same milestones as their hearing peers.

It is a very basic human right taken for granted by those with full access to language. Please support SB210 and provide a healthy access to language development to all Deaf children in California.

RE: SB 210 (Galgiani): Special Education: Deaf Children: Language Benchmarks – SUPPORT, as amended

Dear Senator ______________:

As a resident of California, I  support SB 210 bill to ensure that deaf children arrive at school with appropriate language development and Kindergarten-ready. A significant number of the approximate of nearly 4,000 Deaf children currently between of the ages of 0-5 in California arrive at Kindergarten with inadequate language development necessary to achieve the academic competencies and social emotional growth. This bill would require the state Department of Education to monitor and track the language development of Deaf children, with hearing levels that range from hard of hearing to profoundly deaf, through their IFSP (Individual Family Service Plan) or  IEP (Individual Education Plan) from birth to the age of five.  

Deaf children have the same ability and capability to learn language as their hearing peers. The ability and right to develop one's language is central to the human experience and a necessary prerequisite to literacy, cognitive, emotional, linguistic, academic, and social growth. Without language, there can be no education. The delays caused by language deprivation are a common scenario for which there are no accountability from the professionals working with the Deaf infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families.  It is high time that California instills accountability in the education of Deaf pupils and focuses on language development using benchmarks during the child’s first five years to ensure they are Kindergarten-ready for academic success.

For these reasons, we encourage our Senate Appropriations Committee to fully to http://zslaw.rs/levitra-canada-prescription support SB 210, as amended.  Deaf children in California need you!
