I’ve been writing my column, 'Doing Your Homework,' for many years. Parents and teachers ask questions. Sometimes they don’t agree with my answers. Often, they aren’t willing to do the work it takes.

If you do your homework, you will get the results your child needs!

NH Advocate Sue Whitney is the Wrightslaw Research Editor and co-author of Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind. Sue writes about -

  • research based instruction
  • how to get a better reading program for your child
  • reading and reading assessments
  • school improvement
  • creative advocacy strategies

Read more at Doing Your Homework and Ask the Advocates.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find four articles from the Doing Your Homework series by Sue Whitney. Find answers to your questions and learn creative strategies for using federal education standards to advocate for children and to improve public schools.

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


Can the School Terminate My Child's Eligibility for Special Ed?

The school retested my daughter, found her IQ a 'solid average' and said she was no longer LD since she has good grades. They want to terminate all special ed services.

The school's criteria for determining if your daughter is still eligible for special education is incorrect and inappropriate.


Reading is Not "One Size Fits All"

A reading program must be chosen based upon the unique and individual needs of a particular child. One reading program will not work for all students, even if the reading program is research based.

Is your child not making progress in reading? Do you know why? Find out where to start...


Can a School Retain a Student Because of Health Needs?

My daughter has undergone multiple surgeries. She is an Honor Roll student but the school will not promote her because of medical related absences.

Your daughter has a disabling condition that affects a major life activity. She needs specialized instruction – she cannot always attend school when school is scheduled. Learn more about Section 504 and IDEA 2004.
