Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy, 2nd Edition (5/5) Dec 14, 2007 Joan Long Island NY
  I've been involved in advocating for my special needs son for 14 years and this is the BEST book I've ever read on the subject. A real "how-to." I just walked away from an IEP meeting with MORE than I asked for and it all happened in less than an hour. I was SO prepared. In particular, the chapter on the Rule of Adverse Assumptions helped me prepare. Thanks to this book, I had the confidence and the information that allowed me to effectively go to bat for our son.

  I wish I had read this 2 years ago!! This is a great resource for any and all parents who are fighting the special education maze. It gives great advice and practical strategies on how to approach team meeting and not let them railroad you. They also provide great tips on creating your own file on your child and how to effectively write letters. This is a must have for any parent with a child in special education.

  I didn't know anything about my rights for my daughter. Parents to play an active role in their children's rights. This book will give you all you need and a lot more. If you need somewhere to start this is it.

  This book is by far the best I've read regarding Special Education law and how to successfully advocate for your child within the school system. It shows you how to level the playing field and become an equal and effective member of the IEP team. The commentary provided by the authors is invaluable and something you'd probably pay top dollar for if you had to hire your own attorney. We as parents can be effective advocates. "From Emotions to Advocacy" is the one tool in your box you can't do without.
Godsend, is spelled Wrightslaw! (5/5) Mar 9, 2012 Suzanne Arena Cranston RI US
  Godsend! All I can say is if you are preparing for a simple 504, IEP or filing a Complaint this was key for me. Another VERY valuable tool is the Wrightslaw website. I found the Timeline was the best thing I could have done, albeit it took me more than 24 hours to complete. The Wrights have taken the term "pay forward" to the highlest level of compassion. I am so incredibly thankful and share this information with all that approach me.
