As lawmakers head to Salem, Central Oregon children’s’ advocates are holding their breath. They are concerned about the possibility of more cuts in early special education intervention programs: “The fact with the budget with the budget the way it is in our State, and all the cuts coming down. Services have already been dramatically cut for these programs. It’s close to 60% from 2004 to the current service level that we are providing children right now.” Diana Hansen is the President of Central Oregon Disability Support Network. She says kids learn more from birth to five years old than at any other time in their life, so it’s critical problems are corrected by then. A parents meeting is planned for the High Desert ESD room in Redmond Wednesday night at 5:30.
