It’s all about the money as Central Oregonians head to Salem. Concerned Central Oregon parents will make the trek over the mountains this coming Monday to lobby lawmakers on behalf of disabled children. “Just like all of the programs they are talking about more cuts to funding for early intervention and early childhood special education. We have already taken a 57% cut to that program. And frankly, as important as that age group is, we just can't afford to have any more cuts.” Diana Hanson is President of the Central Oregon Disability Support Network. She says humans develop more from birth to five years of age that at any other time in their life. She wants to tell lawmakers they will need money ahead to help take care of issues while kids are still in their formative years than to try and re-train them later.
