Advocating for Educational Rights: Eight Tips

This is just a mini-post, but one that I hope will help parents who have children with autism or aother special needs. Recently I came across a blog that provided eight tips for advocating for a child's educational rights. These are great.

Bonus tip: Make sure you at least know of a lawyer who advocates for the needs of children with disabilities. Ideally, you probably should have one on speed dial, as the post I linked to suggests. All I can say, is that finding a lawyer at the top of my to do list. Just in case...

This very important for parents to do is have a lawyer handy and to know their children's educational rights stated by the federal government.
