C.H.I.L.D. (Children Having Individual Learning Differences) awarded three $500 grants to staff members in the Verona Public School District at the Board of Education meeting held on April 30.

The grant winners are Linda Barone, a special education teacher at Verona High School; Tatiana Fella, a resource room teacher at Forest Avenue Elementary School; and Felisha Camacho, a registered behavior technician at Laning Avenue Elementary School.

Barone will use the funds to purchase a Newsela subscription, which will enable her to adjust the reading levels of high-interest informational texts. Fella will use the funds to purchase items that will provide a multi-sensory experience for students in the Forest Avenue resource room. Camacho will use the funds to purchase reinforcers that promote positive behavior for the LSS classrooms in Laning Elementary School.

C.H.I.L.D. is a non-profit organization made up of caregivers dedicated to providing support for children who are classified under IDEA, Section 504, or facing a learning challenge. Our goal is to provide a solution-oriented forum for families, educators, and administrators to effectively communicate and collaborate and help bridge the gap between special education and general education.
