As many subscribers know, we are building a new site called FetaWeb.com as a companion site to our new book, From Emotions to Advocacy - The Special Education Survival Guide.
FetaWeb.com will allow us to add new resources and fresh information to supplement the book and advise readers of changes in the law and the book. People can visit the FetaWeb.com site to download sample worksheets, forms and letters.
