2A Wednesday, April 4, 2012 Indian Valley Record Girl&apos;s harsh diagnosis changed Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor aknadler@plumasnews.com Greenville and Taylorsville elementary Principal Gary Stebbins told Plumas County Office of Education directors a special story about a student at Greenville who has under- gone a miraculous transfor- mation since 2009, when she arrived on scene incorrectly labeled with a disorder. Young Angela Standley was pronounced severely mental- ly retarded before coming to Greenville Elementary School in 2009, and people at school could not believe it. Angela had no language skills, true, but she had a spark in her eyes that belied the harsh diagnosis. Her previous special edu- cation team had tried sever- al times to suggest her fami- ly have her tested by an au- diologist, but they had been unable to get her there. Meanwhile, she spent kindergarten in a class with four severely disabled chil- dren with no intervention services. In Greenville, members of her new team stepped up to help get her the testing she needed, and they were not surprised when results showed she was deaf, not dumb or mentally deficient. "Now that she has an inter- preter and access to language, she is reading and writing up a storm," Stebbins told direc- tors. "She is an inspiration to students and staff alike." Residents out and about town might have met her at the post office or other loca- tions, where her interpreter has been taking her on walks J' "2me community-based in- so IOl b ' to teach her the additinm" "hulary and sign After that, ds to be able will be $140, a, each additionat "nt Suc- member.
