I like to think of my readers as graduate-level experts on special education, but a little refresher never hurts: This site has some nice basic information about what disabilities are covered under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and what rights are due to a child with a disability. The “14 Rights of Parents” is quite helpful.
If a parent came to you for help with information about navigating the special education system, where would you send them? What tips would you want to make sure that parent was aware of?
