You asked! We listened! Here comes the Wrightslaw Blog.

We've had repeated requests to start a blog for special education news and views - so this year Wrightslaw will enter the blogosphere.

Our mission has always been to provide accurate, up-to-date information about special education law and advocacy. The Wrightslaw blog will be a great way to share information, news, and for you to share your views.

Since you've shown so much interest in this project, we want you to be part of it.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate, we ask for your help in selecting a design for the blog. Scroll down to view the designs and learn how to cast your vote.

At the end of this newsletter, you'll find a special story. We think you'll enjoy it as much as we did.

Many thanks for your help!
Pam & Pete Wright

P.S. Stop by and say Hey! to Pete at the South Carolina Conference. Pete will be in Columbia on February 27. If you aren't in the area, look for a Training Program in your area.

Jason McElway's Basketball Story: An Unlikely Hero?

On these cold, dreary February days, we all need a story that will warm our hearts.

Meet Jason McElway, a high school student with autism. Jason is also the manager of his high school basketball team.

Jason lives for basketball. He loves basketball.

But Jason never wore the uniform and never played the game he loved. One day, everything changed. No one who saw Jason that day will ever forget it.

Warning: This video will make you want to stand up, clap, yell, and cheer.
