Read Chapter 1 of From Emotions to Advocacy.

If you missed the pre-publication offer, you can get details at the Wrightslaw site.

When will FETA hit Bookstores?

Several people have written to ask when From Emotions to Advocacy will be available in bookstores. Good question. It takes 4-6 months before a book gets into the distribution system for chain bookstores. We do not expect FETA to be available in retail bookstores until early 2002.

Online bookstores like Amazon.com and bn.com get new books more quickly. However, online bookstores will not have the book for several weeks.


Our search for "Best School Sites" Continues

We continue our search for the BEST SCHOOL SITES. We thank those people who have nominated sites for inclusion in the Directory of "Best School Sites" that will be posted on the FetaWeb site.

To qualify as a "Best School Site," the site must help parents and others advocate for children with disabilities by providing sample forms, worksheets, and accurate, useful information about special education.

How To Nominate a Site

To nominate a "Best School Site," please send an email to

In the SUBJECT LINE of your email, type the 2 letter identifier for the state (CA, NY, MN) and the words BEST SCHOOL SITE

Example: TX BEST SCHOOL SITE or AZ BEST SCHOOL SITE

In the FIRST LINE of your email, type the link or URL of the site you nominate. Your link should look similar to this:

http://www.schooldistrict.k12.state.us/xxx.html

Please do not send the school district web page as an attachment. We receive so many viruses that we DELETE all emails with attachments.

Please include two or three sentences that explain your reasons for nominating this site -- why this site qualifies as a BEST SCHOOL SITE.

Please send "Best School Site" info to
