Get the educational services and support your child deserves
Federal law guarantees every child a free appropriate education, and the goal of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) is to assure that every child with special needs receives what the law promises. But if you have a special ed child, you know that your family must make sure the school follows through. This powerful book covers:
eligibility rules and assessments working with outside experts developing your child’s ideal educational program preparing for and attending IEP meetings, and resolving disputes with school districts.
The 10th edition includes summaries of important court decisions, expanded information on independent evaluations and bullying, and additional real-life tips. It provides key forms, sample letters, and resources you need at every stage of the IEP process. With it, you can make sure your child gets a good education―the education he or she deserves.
With downloadable forms, letters and resources inside. Includes IEP blueprint.
