VA Tech shootings

President Bush has asked the Departments of Education, Justice, and Health and Human Services to conduct a "review of broader questions raised by this tragedy" says a Reuters report.

There is already some chatter on some news services and blogs that the shooter was diagnosed with Autism when his family immigrated from South Korea to the United States. Maybe the question should be: will the government fund social skills training for bilingual children with disabilities?

Handouts are available at the New York Association of School Psychologists website:
