In light of the detail that the book provides, it serves as a current and concise desk reference for educators ranging from building or district level administrators to classroom teachers to resource specialists in special education and related fields.

Editorial Reviews

Reverend Dennis P. Hartigan
This book is a clear and concise treatment of the laws regarding special education in non-public schools. This should be a part of every non-public school administrator's library. The final chapter of the book deals with some very concrete and practical advice for non-public administrators. This chapter puts the laws into perspective in a clear and practical manner. For the non-public and religious schools who often grapple with trying to offer special education this book is a good guide to help administrators deal with the complex issues and laws. This truly is a must-read for those who want to reach out to families and students who come looking for hope.
Robert J. Safransky
Finally there is a book for non-public school administrators and parents that explains four important laws and their implications for their children. The Section 504, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), and the NCLB (No Child Left Behind) are explained in one chapter. IDEA and its implementation or non-implementation in a non-public school is explored in a specific chapter so that all parties can understand it.
The concluding chapter is worth the purchase price of the book as it gives practical considerations for administrators and parents of religiously affiliated nonpublic schools or nonsectarian nonpublic schools on how to work with public school administrators to provide a quality education for the children in the nonpublic school.
