New Braunfels Developmental Program for Infants and Toddlers helps about 30 young children Comal and Kendall counties cope with developmental disorders. The local program, now four years old, is part of a larger program known in Texas as Early Childhood Intervention.
Child development professionals in the local program evaluate children to determine whether they are developmentally delayed and then identify the type of help each child needs in order to develop at a rate with other children. The program identifies children from birth to age 6 who have or are at risk of having delayed development of motor skills, learning proeeses, social skills or language and provides a statewide system of .services for these children.
The local program is looking for a new home. Professionals working with the program said they have outgrown their facilities at laurel Plaza where they pay no rent for the one office they use. Child developments workers and parents are looking for a new site in New Braunfels, hopefully one with a nominal rent.
The Developmental Program has an occupation therapist, physical therapist, nurse, social worker and child development specialist working with the program to identify and evaluate children who could benefit from the program and then work with those children. Once a develpmental disorder is identified, parents and staff work together to develop motor and speech skills, educational training and traingmg in social and self-help skills.
Sue Thiel, '’hild development specialist, said the program tries to involve the whole family in working with the developmentally delayed child. The major goal of the program is to help parents work with their child. Parents are encouraged to participate in the assessments, the training and all
meetings concerning their child A active parent group also is available to families.
Much of the specialists’ time is devoted to making home visits to about 30 families with developmentally delayed children. Thiel said referrals always are welcome and come in from doctors, nurses and parents not only when a child has a defined physical or mental disorder, but when conditions such as a pro-mature birth make a developmental disorder likely
“Our philosophy is the better we get to a child, the better,” Thiel said She added that studies show children who receive specialized attention early in life are more likely to overcome disorder The program is free and open to all children regardless of the family’s income. The goal of the program is to help each child fit into the normal education system. Thiel said.
The Early Childhood Intervention Program in Texas was created in 1981 by the legislature Before 1981 several state agencies provided services to children with developmental delays, but programs for infants and toddlers were absent in
Fred Astaire remembered
OS ANGELES (AP' - Fred Astaire, who flunked his first screen test but became the debonair dancer who could even make a hat rack seem graceful, will forever be the symbol of class and style.
(iinger Rogers said after his death.
Astaire, who died .Monday at age 88. danced million of moviegoers away from reality as he swirled Miss Rogers in elegant penthouses, high above Depression-era streets; glided romantically with Cyd Charisse in a nasty park; and, in “Royal Wedding,” twirled around a bachelor pad with a hat rack.
It all worked, and those who knew him said everything about Astaire seemed to be choreographed for perfection.
“His talent is one that is going to live forever and I think the centuries that come on, the youngsters will find, they’ll look to hun for class, style and charm, because he epitomizes it,” Miss Rogers said Monday night on ABC News’ “Nightline.”
“He brought extraordinary intellect, craft, poetry, spontaneity and musicality to his choreography and dancing, which remain a standard for us all and has come to represent the quintessential essence of the American theatrical style,” said ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Astaire, who had suffered from pneumonia, died at Century City Hospital.
“I just got in bed with him and put my arms around him and he died in my arms, and that’s the way
he wanted it.” said his wife. the former jockey Robyn Smith, whom he married in 1980 She said he asked her to share his last moments with the fans of his dozens of hit movie musicals. Burial will be private, but a public memorial service will be arranged.
“There hasn’t been such a talent as his,” songwriter Irving Berlin said tearfully by telephone Monday from his New York home. “He was an international star ... the purest talent I have ever worked with.”
Fellow song-and-dauce man Gene Kelly said; “Although we have lost one of the greatest dancers who ever lived, Fred Astaire will always be immortal and an inspiration to all dancers who come after us.”
For “Top Hat” in 1935. Astaire and Miss Rogers danced to such Berlin confections as “Cheek to Cheek.” “Isn t It a Lovely Day” and “Top Hat. White Tie and Tails.”
“Everything he did was with grace and elegance; The way he moved, the way he spoke, the way he dressed,” said Gregory Peck, who costarred with Astaire in Astaire's dramatic role as a doomed scientist in “On The Beach.”
“The last time I saw him, a few months ago, he still had that lightness of step; he was as graceful as ever.”
Born Frederick Austerlitz, the son of an Omaha, Neb., beer salesman felt uncomfortable with praise, and said all his achievement came from hard work and rehearsal. He
disliked formal wear, and lived a private life.
“I never thougfit a funny-looking guy like me would be suitable for pictures.” Astaire once said. and a studio executive in 1930 dismissed turn after his first screen test with the curt words: “Can’t act ... can’t sing ... balding ... can dance a little.” His only Oscar, in 1949. was honorary.
He was untrained as a singer, but introduced numerous hits. Berlin once said he’d rather have Astaire take his songs to the screen than anyone else.
Astaire’s top-hat-and-tails style dominated the Hollywood musical genre beginning in the 1930s, when he starred in a series of ll song-and-danee films with Miss Rogers, beginning with “Flying Down To Rio” in 1933.
The pair captivated Depression-era audiences, and the magic continued with Astaire’s later partners, including Miss Charisse. Rita Hayworth. Judy Garland and Audrey Hepburn.
Astaire and Miss Rogers appeared in such hits as The Gay Divorcee,” “Roberta,” “Top Hat.” “Follow the Fleet.” "Swing Time, “Shall We Dance,” “Carefree” and “The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle.”
PUBLIC NOTICE WHAT DOES THE TAXPAYER WANT?
Although the concept was great, most voters in Texas probably approved the establishment of a Central
Appraisal District, without realizing what they were
Now, Our School Districts, City of New Braunfels and County of Comal, are considering the possibility of having one Central Collection Agency for the collections of your taxes. Once again, the concept is great and COULD save many thousands of dollars. But, are you going to be happy with letting the Central Appraisal District take over this function; WHEN my office, already staffed and
equipped for collections (with facilities already ©stab
I i shed with taxpayer dollars) WILL perform this in an efficient and very cost effective manner
You TAXPAYERS out there that pay the bills (including mine) are not going to get to vote on this, but you can make yogi voices heard as to your preference. Call or write your elected representatives of the School Districts, City Council and Commissioners Court.
