Hard to imagine that expressions such as: easy to read book about IEPs, special education law explained in plain language and easy to find answers about key legal questions would ever be used together in the same sentence? Well, with this new book from Wrightslaw, this is all made possible! All About IEPs is a must-have book for parents, educators, advocates and anyone involved in special education. It is a wonderful reference tool that is laid out in a very user-friendly format that provides quick reference to specific topics related to special education. All About IEPs answers more than 200 frequently asked questions about IEPs (Individual Educational Plans) and the IEP process. The Q & A format makes it quick and easy to find your specific areas of interest without ever having to read the entire book from beginning to end, searching for the answers. Each chapter includes recommended resources on where to find more information, end notes that provide reference to the statutes and regulations which are then further detailed in Appendices A and B in the back of the book, advocate s tips, samples and checklists, and a summary. What is great about this book for parents is that it explains special education law and your rights and responsibilities in language that is easy to understand. If you are looking for answers to many of your unsolved questions or would like to know more about special education and the IEP process, I highly recommend this book! --On The Spectrum - AHA Association Newsletter
