50 Ways to Support Your Child's Special Education: From IEPs to Assorted Therapies, an Empowering Guide to Taking Action, Every Day by Terri Mauro

More than six million students in the U.S. receive special education services and that number is on the rise. Frequent changes in educational philosophy and special-education law have made it increasingly difficult for parents to establish an appropriate education plan for their children. This book looks at the many ways that parents can advocate for their children. including how to:

  • Communicate with teachers
  • Get homework done
  • Become involved at school
  • Ensure their children are well rested
  • Start a school day on the right foot

Advocacy comes in all forms, and sometimes itÆs as simple as helping people get to know their child and family in a positive way. This useful book will serve as an invaluable tool for parents looking to establish the best educational plan for their children.
