During a crisis, your first response is likely to be a big mistake!

  • Think
  • Regroup
  • Analyze the issues
  • Gather information
  • Locate the high ground
  • Plan a strategy

Most parents do not need an attorney - they need a plan.

Conflict and disagreements between parents and school staff are normal, predictable events. You must learn how to manage a crisis with long-term planning strategies you can use to weather the storm.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn how to handle a parent-school crisis, what to do if you think your child's rights have been violated, and how to avoid power struggles with the school.

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