In the Wrightslaw model of special education advocacy, you prepare for a "worst case scenario." You hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, you will learn how to avoid the conflict of due process and how to prepare if you must go to a due process hearing. Find a success story of how one family prevailed at due process - they refused to give up!
