Review

"Get to the office store and buy some tabs! Pete and Pam Wright did it again! Every parent and advocate should have this book as a companion to From Emotions to Advocacy." --Lori Allen, Education Department, Parents Helping Parents, and advocate for families<br /><br />"Understanding special education law can be difficult. First, there is the new IDEA 2004, followed last summer by the approved regulations for this law. Yet, Peter and Pamela Wright, authors of the second edition have managed to create a clear and concise book explaining the IDEA and Regulations." --Elaine Butler, Support For Families Librarian, San Francisco, CA

About the Author

Peter and Pam Wright are the authors of the best-selling books Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy, Wrightslaw: No Child Left Behind and Wrightslaw: IDEA 2004. The Wrights provide information and advice about educational law and advocacy at Wrightslaw.com, the #1 ranked special education website.

More About the Author

Pete and Pam Wright are the founders of Wrightslaw, created in November 1993 after Pete successfully represented Shannon Carter before the United States Supreme Court. He won a landmark victory in Florence County v. Shannon Carter, 510 U.S. 7, that has benefited all children with disabilities.

Pete is an attorney who represents children with special educational needs. Pete struggled with learning disabilities, including dyslexia, dysgraphia and ADHD. His determination to help children grew out of his own educational experiences.

Pam is a psychotherapist who has worked with children and families since the 1970's. Her training and experience in clinical psychology and clinical social work give her a unique perspective on parent-child-school dynamics, problems, and solutions. Pam has written extensively about raising, educating, and advocating for children with disabilities.

For a year and a half, Pete and Pam Wright were Adjunct Professors of Law at the William and Mary School of Law where they taught a course about special education law and advocacy and assisted with creation of the Law School's Special Education Law Clinic. Pete and Pam are co-founders and faculty at the William & Mary Law Institute of Special Education Advocacy (ISEA).

They have written books and produced an award winning DVD to provide parents, advocates, educators, and attorneys with accurate, up-to-date information about special education law and advocacy.

Pete and Pam train thousands of parents and advocates across the nation annually and have created and produced a Wrightslaw multimedia training program.

Pete and Pam have two sons, a daughter, two daughters-in-law, and three beautiful grandkids. They love to sail, windsurf, fish, kayak, explore, and have adventures on the Chesapeake Bay at their home on Stingray Point VA. Pete (AD4VI) and Pam (KF4LCU) are amateur radio operators as well.

It is the night before Jessica's first big IEP Team meeting and her parents are scrambling to find something - ANYTHING - that can help them prepare for the meeting. Try Wrightslaw. Sally's advocate is packing her briefcase as she heads out the door for the IEP Team meeting. She checks for her most critical resource. Wrightslaw. Susan, a school district attorney, checks her bag before heading off to her next meeting. Yup. Wrightslaw. Is there no one who hasn't heard of Wrightslaw?

Actually, we are sure that many readers have not, so today we review two new books from Wrightslaw. Both are second editions of books Pam and Pete Wright first released several years ago. The Wrights have updated both books to reflect the 2004 changes to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act [IDEA] and its implementing regulations. We use both books in our regular course of business and highly recommend them to parents, educators, advocates, attorneys and anyone else who has a need for quick but comprehensive manuals on special education law.

Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Edition [Wrightslaw] is a wonderful and ready resource for all who want to be able to find and then quote chapter and verse of IDEA law and regulations. The book includes the complete text of all four parts of IDEA as enacted in December, 2004. Wrightslaw also contains the complete implementing regulations for IDEA that became effective in August, 2006. These texts alone are worth the cost of the book.

But Wrightslaw does not stop with the IDEA statute and its implementing regulations.

Now in a newly updated and significantly expanded second edition, "Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" provides parents, educators, child service advocates, and family attorneys with a clear and superbly organized introduction to the federal laws affecting the education of children with disabilities. An invaluable guide to special education rights and responsibilities, co-authors Pete Wright (who has represented children with disabilities for more than 30 years including appearing before the U. S. Supreme Court in 'Florence County School District IV v. Shannon Carter, 510 U.S. 7 - 1993 in which he won a landmark victory for all children with disabilities) and Pam Wright (a psychotherapist who has worked with children since the 1970s and is the Editor of 'The Special ed Advocate' newsletter), "Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" addresses the issues of a child's right to a free and appropriate education; individualized education programs, IEP teams, transition and progress; evaluations, re-evaluations, consent and independent educational evaluations; eligibility and placement decisions; least restrictive environment, mainstreaming and inclusion; research based instruction, discrepancy formulas and response to intervention; discipline, suspensions and expulsions; safeguards; mediation, confidentiality, new procedures and timelines for due process hearings. A critically important addition to school district and community library Educational Laws & Guidelines reference shelves, "Wrightslaw: Special Education Law" should be considered 'must reading' for anyone (but most especially by parents and school authorities) charged with the responsibility for educating a disabled child regardless of the nature or degree of the disability.

This book is a basic overview of the laws governing special education. The included summaries and footnotes are helpful to those without a basic understanding of education law and current regulations. This book would have been more helpful to school personnel and informed parents if it had included additional footnotes that clarified the statutes regarding eligibility.

This is not a book that is read cover to cover, rather a resource for questions you may have regarding the federal special education law - IDEIA. Geared more towards parents, it's a complete description and explanation of the federal code, helping parents and others understand their roles and responsibilities. Special Education Law also provides links to it's very helpful and thorough Wright's Law website. Purchased specifically as a study guide for taking an exam for a national certification as an educational diagnostician, this book provided me with a complete resource of special education law.
