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!
