Start the Year Off Wright … Learn Advocacy Skills at a Wrightslaw Program

by Wrightslaw

As the parent of a child with special educational needs, you represent your child’s interests. When you know how to advocate on your child’s behalf, you increase the odds that your child will get an appropriate education. You can’t leave this job to others!

Although most people are focused on the holidays, IEP season will be here before you know it. A Wrightslaw training program will teach the knowledge and skills you need to be an effective advocate.

    I just had an IEP for my 8yr daughter that has cone dsytrophy. Her doctor said we should wait (for her next appt.in may) before we look in braile, since we are not sure she will need it. (he wants to see if her vision is getting worse or if its at a stand still. Her VI teacher keeps pushing braile on us. Even though we keep saying no. Can THEY make her take it? Also they want to take her out of a regular class setting and place her in the visionaly impared class room? Before we had a name for her vision loss. We took her to a low vision optometrist who said she would benfit from vision theaphy but the school keeps saying they dont cover it.
    How can I get them to cover it, the assement the doctor did is now over 1 yr old.
