Nolo's IEP Guide: Learning Disabilities
According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, 2.4 million children in the U.S. are diagnosed with learning disabilities – and these children have unique educational needs. It's up to parents and schools to work together to ensure that each child's unique educational needs are met. But what if the school disagrees with your goals for your child? You are at a disadvantage if you don’t know the law.
While federal law entitles children with learning disabilities to an “appropriate” education, making sure teachers and school administrators are addressing a child’s special needs and providing the proper services can feel like an uphill battle. This book will help guide you through your child’s IEP process by explaining your child’s rights and teaching you how to draft educational goals and objectives, research school programs and alternatives, prepare for IEP meetings, and resolve disputes with your school district.
This book teaches you to:
- identify a learning disability
- understand your child's rights to education
- untangle eligibility rules and evaluations
- prepare and make your best case to school administrators
- develop IEP goals and advocate for their adoption, and
- explore and choose the best programs and services.
Nolo's IEP Guide: Learning Disabilities is written by an expert in education law who’s fought for kids for many years. The 8th edition provides the forms, sample letters, resources, and encouragement you need.
