This issue of the Special Ed Advocate is Back to School Session 2: Mistakes People Make - Advocates.

An advocate (who is often the parent of a child with special needs) can provide invaluable assistance to parents trying to make their way through the complexities of special education law and procedures.

Anxious about this school year?

Remembering the frustrations, disappointments, and mistakes made in the past?

Caution! Learn how to avoid unnecessary mistakes!

Find out what advocates should do to keep a cool head and apply informed judgment every step of the way in the special ed process.

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


Mistakes People Make: Advocates

Because the non-lawyer advocate plays an extremely important role in the special education process, advocates must be mindful of the power of their role and the trust parents place in them.

The more serious mistake advocates may make are generally ones of excess. Learn to avoid these common mistakes.

Includes the Multimedia Special Ed Law & Advocacy Training (6.5 hrs) + Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Edition + From Emotions to Advocacy, 2nd Edition.
