Here's the link to the podcast I did with Pamela Onoiwu, State of Education, regarding what to expect when you dare challenge a school district. Sorry about the beeping in the background. Her smoke alarm started beeping as we started! Oh, how life interferes with living!! It's not as bad as if it was in your home, so brave on!
We talked about a great many topics and I referenced:
Too Loud, Too Bright, Too Fast, Too Tight by Sharon Heller. Valuable resource about sensory issues. Insightful for both kids and adults with sensory issues. Don't let these issues be a mystery to you anymore!
Protection and Advocacy, Inc. Rights and Responsibilities for Special Education Law. Don't think this is legal-gobbledy goop. It's structured in such a way as to speak directly to questions asked by parents. It's a gift to all of us.
Check out two blog posts that will help you to understand the process and what you need to know to generate questions for your mission.
You Don't Know What You Don't Know: Part 1: The Special Education Referral
You Don't Know What You Don't Know: Part 2: The Special Education Assessment: Testing Your Child and Teen for Learning Disabilities
Here's a resource to help you get support so that you can advocate for your child. It's the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates, Inc. Do your best to find someone who works on contingency. Advocates are less expensive to work with than attorneys (of course!).
