music

the insight into music therapy I had on Saturday afternoon was depressing. The talk by a rabid lawyer about how parents can squeeze maximum funding out of the LEA for their statemented children was almost equally depressing. Thanks for the link, Sue, others might also be inspired to go to http://www.seghea.com/becky/down/nephew.html and find that there are parents out there who are dedicated enough to their children to adopt Biblically principled methods towards their dis-advantaged offspring and who are also prepared to invest the necessary TIME required. How one can believe a 1-y-old is 'talking' when you can't understand a word she says, however, remains to be resolved in my mind, but for now, I am going to take Victoria out of the kitchen where she has been assiting Richard in the large-scale production of flapjacks, to the piano.....

    I am not easily shocked, but on the subject of squeezing funding out of L.E.A.s was most certainly astounded when I realised (quite recently) that there are financial incentives for parents to keep their children on drugs such as ritalin, deny that children are making progress, exaggerate claims of bad behaviour in the home, etc., etc.. The current system provides too much temptation for people who are on low incomes and goes against all the best interests of the child. Another example of how state funding is too broad, blunt and undiscerning to work properly.
