1. Victoria asks: "How can I protect our childrenís rights to inclusion?" 

"As a consultant to a preschool program, I supervise students who provide language therapy to a play group of children. Some of these children have disabilities. We use very innocuous books and fun activities."

"Today, I learned that some parents of non-disabled children have complained and donít want their children in this play group. If the play group ends, our kids will not get to have language with their non-disabled peers. What can we do about this?"

Read Pamís response to Victoria and their discussion of inclusion and parents


2. Suzanne asks: Isnít full inclusion a childís right?"

"The IEP team wants to place a child with autism in a self-contained class, despite the parentís objections. Am I missing something? Isnít full inclusion a childís right?

Read Peteís answer


3. Attorney Needs Advice About Preparing For A Hearing

An attorney writes: "I am preparing for my first due process hearing. Can you give me some pointers?"

Here are two suggestions:

1. Read Peteís "Attorney Manual"

A few months ago, we revised this article, and made it available in the Wrightslaw: Tactics and Strategy Manual.

2. Read the excellent article by Sonja Kerr about how to prepare for a due process hearing. Sonja is a parent attorney from Minnesota


4. More Creative Ideas For "THE SECOND BOOK"

When we made the FREE BOOKS OFFER, we asked what you planned to do with "The Second Book." We knew you'd have "creative ideas" and have been overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness and generosity.

Why does Sue from Oklahoma plan to give one book to an attorney and another to a psychologist? 

Why does Fran from Vermont want "Wrightslaw to help "right" perceptions and practices?"

Read what John from Delaware, Pat from Kansas, Peter from Virginia, and Lori from New York plan to do with their second book


5. Update on Free Book Offer

Free books are being shipped out daily. More than 100 were shipped out yesterday. Several hundred are in the pipeline. 

If you sent a note about your plans for "The Second Book" but don't see your idea listed, bookmark this page and check back again in a few days. These ideas are from letters we received by March 15. We'll continue to add creative ideas from the letters we receive.
