Kids Educational and Mental Health
Network have new plans for the year 2014. Our plans are to begin a scholarship
program so that we can work with children who have Educational
and Mental Health problems. This can help children with disabilities have one on
one teaching in smaller classrooms.
One out of every four children has
type of mental or learning disability. These numbers are growing yearly. Schools
are unprepared to manage or deal with children that are diagnosed
with the following disorders:
* Reactive Attachment Disorder
* Fetal Alcohol disorders?
* Bipolar Disorder
* Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
* Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
Children diagnosed with these
disorders also are challenged with learning disabilities and even social
problems. What happens to these children? Most of them get lost in the school
system with little or no help. Over ten percent (to be exact 10.9%) drop out of
school between ages 16 and 24. What is the future for the children? Most of them
become unemployable and go on to a public assistance program, while others end
up in prison. Our goal this year is to set up training programs that consist of
educating the teachers, parents and social workers about mental illness and
learning disabilities. Having children tested and working out a treatment plan
for parents, teachers and the psychologist will better help the child succeed in
life. Most of the children we work with come from drug abused homes, or are
under privileged where parents do not have the money or the insurance to get
them the help they need. It costs American taxpayers $30,000 per year to support
a prisoner, and yet for less than half of that over a five year period, most of
these children could be helped and become responsible adults. My question for
you is would you rather help them now while they are young, or do you want to
have the prison system deal with them after they are adults?
This coming school year, we are
hoping to raise the fund to have Jackie Jones, and a child psychologist be here
to work with children who have Individual Educational Plans. that. Below are
some of the goals that you should be looking at if your sending your child to a

We have also want to have the
opportunity to train teachers and parents on Autism, Reactive Attachment
Disorder, ADD, and ADHD. Jackie Jones, a Special Educational advisor, has tested
some of the children and helps them with their learning disabilities. To date
these children are succeeding in school. Dr. Burk, a psychological advisor, has
also organized and structured essential work testing and talked with the
children who have emotional problems. If you have a child with problems in
school, contact Kids Educational & Mental Health Network and see if we can help.
