We belong to a select club, an elite group of people, who speak a foreign language (IEP, OT, PT) other parents do not know. We emit sensitive radar that only those of our own kind can detect, often with one look.
No words can adequately explain the dread and anxiety that accompany us everywhere we go.
For the sakes of our children, we must strive to be patient with those whose experiences have not given them access to our perspective. It is our duty to lead these people to a fuller understanding of the beauty and ability within our children.
To do this, we must become effective advocates. - Jennifer Bollero

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate we wanted to share the stories of some of the most effective (and fierce!) advocates we know.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
