  • A friend of mine with two kids on the spectrum just lent me the most useful and amazing book, and I just have to share.

    Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy - The Special Education Survival Guide (2nd. ed.) by Pete Wright and Pam Wright.

    I'll steal the blurb from their companion website to explain what the book has in it.

    In this comprehensive, easy-to-read book, you learn to:
    Develop a master plan for your child's special education
    Organize your child's file
    Work with consultants and evaluators
    Write SMART IEP goals and objectives
    Use test scores to monitor your child's progress
    Resolve parent-school conflict early
    Write effective letters and create paper trails
    Use parent agendas to improve meeting outcomes


    There's a companion website with downloads, links and tons of updated information too:
     


    I'm preparing for Lukas's IEP using this book, and I can't say enough about it!
