Forbes Selects Wrightslaw as a "Best of the Web" Site


Forbes selected Wrightslaw.com as a "Best of the Web" site.

Forbes "Best of The Web"
have reviewed more than 3,700 different Web sites in more than 250 different categories since 1999.

"These web sites set the gold standard on the Web . . . our editors cut through the clutter and noise of the Web to bring you the absolute best sites for investing, business and pleasure."

Because special education programs and procedures vary from state to state, pursuing the services to which a child is entitled can easily become all-consuming. If you want a general special education portal, try Internet Special Education Resources (www.iser.com).

But your best bet is to visit Web sites that educate parents about how their children learn and direct them to relevant experts and advocates at the local level.

At Wrightslaw.com, "you'll find plenty of clear, helpful information about just what your child is entitled to from the education system.

"On the home page, click on Topics and then Advocacy to read the Introductory Articles for an overview of what you can expect--and what will be expected of you--in securing special education assistance for your child.

In Parent Advocacy: What You Should Do--And Not Do, attorney Leslie Margolis lays out the ground rules, while When Parents and Schools Disagree is educational consultant Ruth Heitin's primer on maneuvering effectively within the system.

The state-by-state Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities doesn't merely list experts and organizations; it walks you through different approaches to finding them and allows you to choose one you can feel comfortable with."
