Parents of kids with special needs no longer are content to sit on the sidelines while administrators and bureaucrats determine the future of their child's education. Special Needs Advocacy Resource Book: What You Can Do Now to Advocate for Your Exceptional Child's Education is a unique handbook that teaches parents how to work with schools to achieve successful learning situations and accommodations for their child's needs. Navigating today's school system can be difficult for even the most up-to-date, education-savvy parents. Washington, DC, area special needs advocates Rich Weinfeld and Michelle Davis provide parents with concise, easy-to-understand definitions and descriptions of legal terms and school regulations, along with checklists, tips, questionnaires, and other tools. Parents will not only feel informed by Weinfeld and Davis' vast knowledge of the inner workings of the school system-they'll be empowered to help their kids succeed in school.
