Our first FAQ book will feature everything you ever wanted to know about IEPs. OK…maybe not everything, but close. (More Details)

We Need Your Help

Our faithful readers have been asking for an FAQ series. You asked, we listened. 

Who better to name the book than our subscribers. You ask the questions and you will read our new book for answers. We thank you for helping us name the book.

When suggesting a name, remember, you will be naming the first book in a series. Our first topic is IEPs. Subsequent books will answer questions about Evaluations, Eligibility, Procedural Safeguards, etc.

You are always creative, so we know you’ll have suggestions that will grab attention and tell people about what is so important in this book.  The title should stimulate interest, engage readers, and surface in online and library searches.

About the Book

Wrightslaw receives hundreds of questions daily. For over 10 years we’ve been collecting questions from parents, advocates, attorneys, teachers, administrators.

  • What is…?
  • How do I…?
  • What do I do when….?
  • Suppose this happens…what then?
  • What are my rights when…?
  • Do I really need to…?
  • Who is responsible for…?
  • Does my child need…?

You’ll not only get answers to your frequently asked questions about the IEP process, but an explanation of what the statute and regulations require, practical examples, useful advocacy strategies and tips from expert advocates, plus resource listings for more information.

Need real, understandable solutions for IEP problems and information that will enable you to implement your solutions?

Check the preliminary outline of the Table of Contents for a sneak peek of topics.
