Overview

Provides an insider's view of the special education process for parents and teachers

This book explores the special education process-from testing and diagnosis to IEP meetings and advocating for special needs children. Step by step the authors reveal the stages of identification, assessment, and intervention, and help readers to better understand special needs children's legal rights and how to become an active, effective member of a child's educational team. Grounded in more than twenty-five years of working with parents and educators, the authors provide significant insight into what they have learned about the special education. This book fills the gap in the literature for the millions of children receiving special education services and the parents who are clamoring for information on this topic.

  • Includes valuable tools, checklists, sample forms, and advice for working with special education students
  • Demystifies the special education process, from testing and diagnosis to IEP meetings and advocating for children

New editions covers Response-to-Intervention (RTI), a new approach to diagnosing learning disabilities in the classroom; expanded coverage of autism spectrum disorders and bipolar disorder; and a revamped Resources section.

We owned the first edition of this book. The second edition is even better! It is updated and includes many new chapters. I can't recommend this book enough. If you have a child with special needs (like we do) or teach children with special needs (like my aunt did), I know you will find this book helpful.

I bought the first edition earlier this year without knowing that a new one was coming out. I liked the first book but this one is much more comprehensive. I think it will be really helpful when I deal with my son's school. I haven't finished reading it but I'd definitely recommend it!!

It's just what we needed. Wish we had purchased it sooner, before we had all of our school meetings.
