Editorial Reviews

Review

"With wit and wisdom this dynamic duo of skilled practitioners share helpful insight for families struggling to access special education services and supports." —Denise Marshall, executive director, Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates

"With this book, Jennifer and Julie make the IEP process a little less scary, by providing real, step-by-step examples of how to navigate the world of special education. This is the book I wish existed when my son was diagnosed with autism fourteen years ago, as it would have served as an invaluable resource for my advocacy on his behalf. A must-have for all parents of children receiving special education services!" —Shannon Knall, Wisconsin Autism Council

"There are many books out there about special education rights, but this one stands out among the best. Jen and Julie bring decades of their collective wisdom to the table and it shows. They guide us through a complicated and confusing world that's wrought with jargon, misconceptions and steaming emotions, all while simultaneously injecting levity at exactly the right moments. . . . It’s this combination of passion, professionalism, and personality that makes Your Special Education Rights worth a read.” —David DesRoches, journalist, WNPR

"What most special education parents want and need—a comprehensive but practical guide that not only discusses the law but also “What Your School District Isn’t Telling You” and “What You Can Do About It.” . . . I highly recommend this book not only to parents, but really to anyone involved in special education." —Mona Roy, attorney and mother of two special education children

"In my position as an administrator at a school for students with learning disabilities, I receive at least one request per week from families of students with LD asking what their rights are in the public-school setting and what the procedures are for exercising them. I’ve long wished that I could refer those families (and related professionals) to a single resource. That resource has arrived. . . . Every parent of a student with LD in the US school system should keep handy a copy of this surprisingly clear guide to emotionally fraught terrain." —Kevin Pendergast, head of school, the Kildonan School

About the Author

Jennifer Laviano is a special education attorney in private practice in Connecticut.

She is a regular presenter on the subject of the special legal rights of children with disabilities and their entitlement to receive a free and appropriate education and to be free from disability-based discrimination.

Julie Swanson is a special education advocate whose practice grew out of her efforts to help her son. As an advocate, she helps parents navigate the special education process, including attending IEP and Section 504 meetings. She speaks frequently on special education matters and has a long-standing history of service on special education–related state boards, task forces, and legislative appointments to state councils.
