Pete Wright presents a Wrightslaw Special Education Law & Advocacy Training ConferenceSpecial Education Law & Advocacy Training Schedule

Pam Wright says you should view your relationship with the school as "a marriage without the possibility of divorce."

Unless you are prepared to remove your child from the public school system forever, you need to use your emotions as a source of energy and focus on solving problems.

As a parent, your goals is to make the school want to help your child and your family. Don't allow your emotions to control you.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to protect your relationships with school personnel, how you can insure your concerns will be taken seriously, and how you can put yourself in a stronger position to obtain better educational services for your child.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Parent Advocacy: What You Should Do...And Not Do

Be positive! But don't be naive! Are you getting the picture?

The skilled parent advocate knows negotiation and persuasion techniques. But you must also develop positive working relationships with school personnel to be an effective advocate.


Student Success: Set High Expectations

Ann Marie has 3 children with special needs.  Two children have dyslexia and one was born with Spina Bifida.  But Ann Marie understood the importance of keeping the standard high and establishing a strong work ethic for students with special needs.

Read the guidelines she used to help her children achieve success.


Mistakes Parents Make

Because the stakes are so high, it is difficult for parents of children with special educational needs to advocate calmly and objectively for the educational and related services their children need.

Don't let common mistakes undermine your ability to obtain appropriate services for your child.
