Back to School Week: Helpful links

Theme week: Back to School Week

Here are four sites that I think will be helpful in terms of educational resources:

1. Ten things to Consider as Your Child Starts School this Year: Just ten helpful tips for parents shared at the Autism Society of America website.

2. Model Me Kids: This site features a time for School DVD for sale that promises to be great for students attending kindergarten through fifth grades.

3. LD Online: This one is for parents and teachers alike. A friend noted that L.D. can stand for Learns Differently! The page I linked to will go to a page with a sample letter on getting started with requesting special educational services.

4. Wrights Law Special Education and Advocacy: This is a great site for looking up special education law and past court cases.

Thanks for sharing ldonline's letters with your users. I thought they (and you) might be interested in the article that letter came from. It's called "Communicating with Your Child's School Through Letter Writing" http://www.ldonline.org/article/14615 and it has letters for practically every special education issue.

Let us know if there are other ways we can help.
