Review

I love the question and answer format. I felt like we were having a conversation. Thank you for describing what ESY looks like - a critical chapter for families. I look for materials for parents that are easy to read and useful information that pertains to the family. I would say that you are going to nail it! Thanks for providing yet another wonderful resource. --Patty Kishi, Vice-President, Autism Bridges Maui I love this book. I really like the Q and A format - it is easy to find the specific answers you need. Very clear, concise, and sharply focused --Debbie Harrison, Educator, VA Wrightslaw: All About IEPs has given me my voice. I didn't have one before. Parents have to be armed with the accurate information and encouragement. That is what you give to us. It is empowerment in it's purest form. I am excited about this book. It is clear and easy to understand. The endnotes are a great idea. They give readers a place to go for more information. I can't wait to have All About IEPs as another Wrightslaw resource to share with families. --Susan Bruce, Region 3 Regional Education Coordinator for PRO*Parents of South Carolina, Inc. --Debbie Harrison, Educator, VA

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

As with all their other special ed books, Wrightslaw hit another one out of the park. Their books are the definitive collection for special ed parents, teachers and administrators. Parents, want to know you and your child's rights?~ try the advocacy book. Want to know the educational law concerning special ed? They have a book for it. Want to understand No Child Left Behind or IDEA? Well, that's there too. As lawyers and special ed advocates, these folks definitely know their stuff. As both a special ed teacher and a special ed mom, I appreciate the user friendly way their products are laid out, clearly and concisely, and hands-on knowledge that you can put directly to practical use. I would also recommend that you visit their website and check out the webinars cds they have for sale-very awesome information dissimination.Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd EditionWrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy: The Special Education Survival GuideWrightslaw: Special Education LawWrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy - The Special Education Survival GuideWrightslaw: No Child Left BehindWrightslaw: IDEA 2004

Do you need a quick Q&A with dealing with IEPs? This is wonderful on how easy the book is layed out & how easy it is to find an answer to your question. Now if you want the in-depth then you need the other Wrightslaw books too. With "All About IEPs" they have wonderful reference guide as well. Having examples in the book help give context to the Q&A as well. Buy it & share with other families that have kids on IEPs!

Kids don't come with an instruction manual.

Thanks to Wrightslaw, the IEP process has a great reference manual that offers answers to numerous questions that arise during the creation of meaningful IEPs.

There are two books that every parent-advocate should have in their IEP bag. From Emotion to Advocacy and All about IEPs.

From Emotion to Advocacy offers meaningful strategies that paid huge dividends once we applied them in our effort to advocate for our son's educational needs. My son ultimately graduated high school with honors and is currently attending college.

All about IEPs is written in a simple layout that is easy to navigate for answers to very specific IEP questions.

Good luck in your child's success story journey

This book does not provide very specific laws or statutes. It is at best a primer for parents who are not familiar with basic IEP terms. I returned this book since it was not useful in helping me prepare for due process.

Format: Perfect Paperback
In a Q & A format the book covers many questions about IEPs and the IEP process. This format and the writing style make it easy to read, and accessible to the beginning parent/advocate. What is useful to the experienced parent/advocate is that the answers are footnoted so that when you need to cite an authority, there is something easily available. I have been going to IEP meetings for about 10 kid-years and I found things that were new in the book.

I hope that you never need this book, but if you have a child with an IEP, or might have one this would be a good book to start with. A more experienced might want it to use to brush up on the nuances of IEPs

Format: Perfect Paperback
All About IEP's provides a Q & A format that is easy to read and easy to use. A perfect resource for anyone involved in Special Education; parent, professional, educator, advocate or attorney. This book provides answers to questions the reader may have about IEP's. Not only are answers to the questions provided, but footnotes directing the reader to the law itself are included. Another great resource created to help those involved in IEP's better understand the process and one's rights.

Format: Perfect Paperback
A very readable introduction to the IEP process, sure to help both those in it for the first time and those who've been through it before.

It's written in a Q&A format, contains much basic info, and should help parents and advocates become knowledgeable about and more comfortable with the process and their and their special child's rights. It can also help educate ill informed or ignorant educators.

The book presents the IEP process as a bit too confrontational or adversarial for my taste, based on my experience in the process. It's best when the parents and educators are on the same page and work together. I know others have had worse experiences, though. Ultimately, the child's education depends on the educators and their good faith and the child and parents' interaction with those educators, though the benefits of the provisions of the law and parents awareness thereof cannot be underestimated either.
