As a parent, you negotiate with the school for services.

To be a successful negotiator, you must understand the system and how it works.

Parents often don’t know how important decisions are made - or by whom.

You need a good game plan!

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find Summer School Session 1. Get "step #1" for gathering information and honing your advocacy skills and find out the next steps.

Please don't hesitate to forward this series to friends, family members, or colleagues.
