Maine isn’t treating children with disabilities as required under federal law

Although I do not doubt anything this article says, I did not have this kind of an experience with CDC.  We were referred to them for our youngest daughter.  They got us an IEP with the school.  That got her a year of speech therapy prior to her starting Kindergarten.  

The speech therapy was done by Northeast Hearing and Speech in Portland.  I have nothing but good things to say about them.
Maine’s statewide test results haven’t really changed for years. So we set out to understand what the state should be doing if it wants to see more young people succeed in school and eventually earn some type of post-secondary degree. 
This is a continuation of an ongoing series, Your School, that examines what is holding back teachers, principals, parents and communities from helping students realize their full potential, and aims to hold up promising efforts that other places might learn from.
