Advocates meetingIt is good to have an expert in your corner during the IEP process. Experts provide valuable assistance. But sometimes experts make mistakes that can turn a positive situation into a negative.

This week, we give you more popular articles from the series Mistakes People Make.

Previously, we took a look at mistakes parents and advocates make.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate attorneys Pete Wright and Bob Crabtree offer advice about avoiding mistakes independent experts may make.
