Tips for the Start of the Special Education School Year
With the new academic calendar just starting, here's a useful list of "10 Tips for a Successful School Year" by Pat Howey, an advocate at Special Education Consulting in West Point, Indiana. The list includes a set of good practices such as reviewing your child's IEP, getting to know your child's new teacher and breaking out a fresh notebook dedicated to managing the school year. The article is not specifically aimed at parents of students with autism, but rather at all families with a child receiving special education services. Click on the link and you will find a web page at Wrightslaw.com, part of a series of educational pieces designed to train parents to be informed, diplomatic advocates for their children.
