Last week, we advised you that the Tactics & Strategy Manual was being discontinued because our new book, From Emotions to Advocacy, would be available soon.
Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy is at the printer. We approved the bluelines yesterday. We will receive the book from the printer in two to three weeks.
Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy is a 380+ page book that teaches information and skills. In FETA, you will learn about the special education system, the playing field, and issues that make parent-school conflict inevitable.
You will learn about the child's disability, how the disability affects the child, and appropriate educational and remediation techniques. You will learn about tests and measurements, how to measure educational progress, and how to write SMART IEP goals and objectives.
In FETA, you will learn how to use tactics and strategies to prevent problems or resolve problems early. We teach you about parent-school conflict, how to deal with difficult people, and how to use worksheets to prepare for meetings. You will learn how to create paper trails and write letters.
The book includes forms, worksheets, and sample letters that you can adopt to your circumstances.
From Emotions to Advocacy (FETA) is more than a book. FETA has a companion web site called FetaWeb that is under construction. The FetaWeb site tracks the contents of the book. You can download articles, worksheets, forms, and tip sheets from the FetaWeb site.
