The ultimate resource for success in special education—newly updated!
Authored by two past presidents of the Educational Law Association, this essential guide translates legalese into your language and allows you to focus on your core competency: providing excellent education for students with special needs. Updated to reflect significant court decisions and new developments, the book features:
"The material is useful to anyone needing a quick review of previous case law and regulations. It also addresses the history and legal processes involved in the IDEA and the delivery of instruction based on IDEA regulations. All of this is done in a concise format. "
"The major strength of this book lies in the fact that it provides information about legal issues in a way that appeals to educators. The authors do a good job of avoiding 'legal jargon' and instead rely on 'educational jargon,' which is, of course, more appropriate for the intended audience. "
