Navigating the Special Education Process
This toolkit helps make sense of an often confusing system and educates families of newly diagnosed children with special needs on how to get the best special education, services, and resources available to them.
You are the expert on your child
Many parents wish their children came with instruction booklets. For parents of a child with special needs, this feeling may be magnified. As you learn about your child’s specific needs and interact with medical and educational professionals, remember that you are the expert on your child. Although you may feel overwhelmed by the challenges you face and may have many questions, no one knows your child better than you do.
