women at computerEvery day, we receive dozens of emails from parents (and teachers) that begin with the word Help!

You are not alone if you have been tempted to send an email that begins with "help," requesting legal advice from Wrightslaw.

Most parents do not need an attorney - they need a plan.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to handle a parent-school crisis, what to do if you think your child's rights have been violated, and how to avoid power struggles with the school.

Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
