Read what this mother of four children with special needs wrote about this training:
WOW! When I used this training about test scores, I got a new plan, a new evaluation, additional services in the IEP – all in a one hour meeting.
"I have four children with special needs and little time to spend learning the law or strategies. This CD training is great! I listen to it while I’m getting ready in the morning, packing lunches, doing laundry. Even with my busy schedule, I get repetition and review – I pick up something new every time I use it.
"I learned how to understand Sam’s test scores and how to chart the scores to show lack of progress. I also learned how to work with the school to be part of the solution. I did it!"
"This is advocacy training at it's best..." Read reviews
