As the parent of a child with a disability, you need to know what the law actually says. You need to know how to find answers to your questions in the IDEA statute and regulations. 

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to use IDEA to negotiate a better educational program and develop your child's IEP. Find out how to use IDEA to improve educational outcomes and results.

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