Most parents do not need an attorney - they need a plan.
During a crisis, your first response is likely to be a big mistake!
Think. Regroup. Analyze the issues. Gather information. Locate the high ground. Plan a strategy.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to manage a conflict or crisis with the school and long-term planning strategies you can use to weather the storm.
Please don't hesitate to forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
