Thanks to Chicago Special Education Examiner, Kindall Nelson, who reviews and recommends books every parent of a child with special needs should read.
Several of Kindall’s favorites, she says are “invaluable to parents, teachers, and others,” are our favorites too.
Don’t miss what Kindall recommends:
Wrightslaw: Special Education Law by saying “Nobody who buys this book will be disappointed. This book is the second edition and is significantly expanded to include IDEA 2004 as well as the No Child Left Behind Act and Section 504 laws.”
And, Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy is “written especially for parents who have not traveled the path of the IEP before. It is great for parents who have experience with IEPs also. This book takes each law and breaks it down, showing how it will benefit your child.”
Time to get busy, only several more weeks of summer left. You can find more of Kindall’s reviews and recommendations in
