I've had a good many requests for link to the article I wrote about the devastating state of special education services and the children (and you parents!) who are being harmed by this situation.
You're getting ready to go back to school and need to understand it all.
Here's a link to a blog post essentially summarizing the article and here's the article that was published in a legal journal.
Here's the link to the article outlining how to request a special education assessment and the follow-up article about the special education assessment (and the contrast to a private assessment).
Hope this helps. Remember that you can send me a question over DrClaudia.net or you can call in to the show on Thursdays at 11 am (Central/9 am Pacific/10 am Mountain and 12 Eastern) when we're doing a live Facebook stream.
