Do I Have a Right to Observe My Child's Classroom?

The special ed director said I cannot observe the class because of confidentiality issues with the other children.

Answer: SCOTUS decision in Owasso v. Falvo addresses expectation of privacy. Learn how to deal when administrators take positions not based on law, or common sense.


My Child's Teacher Does Not Know Him - What Can I Do?

Answer: If the teacher does not know your child – then what?  You need to get to know your child’s teacher.

Advocate Pat Howey explains how you can jump in as your child's "case manager".


Must Teachers Provide ALL Accommodations in the IEP?

Is the regular ed teacher required to include all accommodations on every test or activity they create?
