The Special Education Handbook

The Special Education Handbook: How to Get the Best Education Possible for Your Learning Disabled Child

By Dr. Kenneth Shore

This practical, easy-to-use, easy-to-understand handbook provides invaluable help to both parents and teachers negotiating the maze of special education. With straightforward information about the realities and constraints of the school system and step-by-step strategies, Dr. Shore’s advocacy approach seeks to promote partnership — not confrontation — between parents and educators. Nevertheless, he lets parents know what steps to take if conflict-resolution or a due-process hearing becomes necessary.

Parents, counselors, teachers and professionals involved with special education will all benefit from this book’s comprehensive but user-friendly discussion of:

  • warning signs of an educational disability
  • special education laws, legal safeguards and resources
  • Individual Education Programs (IEPs)
