by Rae-Ann Arevalo,
This training was provided last week and was developed to review the CLM learner binder, which was specifically designed to formulate, implement and monitor learner behavior.
Information was also covered about the flow charts that provide the ‘big picture’ and explain the process of the advantages of the systematic design of the learner binders. These have recently been updated by Vicci Tucci.
This training not only incorporated information from last summer’s CLMMIS training but also provided an opportunity to learn about the rationale of the learner binder layout and how it can make our jobs easier.
Everyone had a great time and we want to thank everyone for coming and for making of this day a great learning and reinforcing opportunity.
THANKS, TUCCi TEAM!!!

This conference was held in Spanish and English for parents and families of children with disabilities and/or special needs. The objective was for parents to participate in the different workshops that would provide them with educational, medical and legal information about the services and rights of their children with different abilities.
“The event was awesome! Some of our learners were able to attend the event and we were able to support them with the help of our awesome South County staff. We had a good turn out and many parents, as well as vendors, were interested in our services. We got many compliments from parents and vendors.” – Cynthia Valencia, South County Coordinator.
“Overall, we all had fun at the even and feel thankful that our staff was able to take time to come out and help at this conference!” – Cynthia Valencia, South County Coordinator.
THANK YOU SOUTH COUNTY CLM STAFF FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOR THE INCREDIBLE WORK YOU DO FOR OUR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES. WE REALLY APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO!

Water parks are the definitive location for cooling off in hot-as-hell summer weather. But the hot spots for fun in the sun are notoriously inaccessible to people with disabilities.
A new water park called Morgan’s Inspiration Island was designed for people with a wide range of disability identities — and it’s mind-blowingly accessible. The park, which opens June 17 in San Antonio, Texas, is fully wheelchair-accessible and hopes to welcome people with disabilities through careful consideration in design.
The tropical-themed park features six major attractions, including …
