Tips on participating in IEP meetings
Making sure IEPs are carried out and effective

2. Independent living
3. Self-advocacy
4. Continuing education

Due process and other legal recourses

Invaluable forms and charts help parents plan their IEP strategy, keep records and key contacts, log conversations and correspondence with important players, and track progress. This guide is one of the best tools available for understanding how to navigate the special education maze!

    Helpful Resource

    Because the laws differ so much state to state and the bureaucracy differs from district to district - the information in this book should be seen as a generalization. HOWEVER, it is extremely helpful in giving you a step by step approach in what to do if you think you're child should be classified or be receiving modifications. Hopefully there is a more updated edition that has come out since this one.
