Letter from Mary  . . .

about "lightening access to the regs" and wrightslaw.com as a comfort blanket!

Print this page

Dear Pete & Pamó

Thanks so much for your continued dedication to making a huge difference in the lives of my kids. You keep me informed with state-of-the-art practices. You give me immediate access to legal info which empowers me to turn "emotions into advocacy" (to coin your phrase <g>)!

Thanks for the lightening access to the regs. Iím currently involved in a leadership/ advocacy training program called Partners in Policymaking. The feedback from the other participants after logging onto your site has been understandably positive.

Iíve suggested that they invest the pittance you charge to publish your advocacy packet. My packet looks worse than my kidsí "comfort blankets" after years of use . . . in other words, I am never without the info I received from you. (Itís getting hard to read . . . thatíll teach me to make a copy next time)!

Hope all is well with you. I donít see you often in the ADD forum and miss your wisdom.

I think you should clone yourselves so you can be ALL places at once <g>.

Warm regards,


Dear Mary -

Itís Monday morning - what a great letter to find in our mailbox!

Quick update: "Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" goes to press soon.

"Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" includes IDEA 97, the newly released IDEA regs (in easy to read form), and Peteís commentary about the law and how to use it to get services for the child.

"Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" also includes the Section 504 statute and regulations, FERPA statute and regulations, AND U. S. Supreme Court decisions in special education cases - Rowley, Burlington, Honig, Carter, and the new decision in Cedar Rapids v Garret F.

If your group wants the most up-to-date legal information, they should save their nickels and dimes and order Wrightslaw: Special Education Law Ė itís a huge (400+ pages), comprehensive reference to the special education laws that will be available soon.

Our next book is "Wrightslaw Special Education Survival Guide - From Emotions to Advocacy" about how to advocate for the child using tactics and strategy.

Subscribers to The Special Ed Advocate newsletter will receive updates about the books, when they will be available, how to order online, etc.
