It’s Here!

Have you ever come out of an IEP meeting only to realize you negotiated away your child’s services to get something you thought he needed more? Are you worried it’s going to happen again, because you’re not sure what you did wrong? Are you preparing for you first IEP meeting, but worried about the truly horrific IEP stories you’ve heard?

You don’t need to worry anymore! Dr. Vaughn K. Lauer, a renowned expert in special education, has written a great guide that will teach you how to work with teachers, therapists, and administrators to get the services your child needs—all of them! Using real stories gathered from real people, Dr. Lauer shows readers how IEP meetings can go wrong and teaches readers what they can do to make sure their IEP meetings go right—every time!

When the School Says No, How to Get the Yes!: Securing Special Education Services for Your Child
by Dr. Vaughn K. Lauer

Packed full of stories from parents, advocates, and school staff, this book lays out a structured, collaborative process that IEP teams can follow to determine what a child needs and how to provide services that meet those needs each and every time.

*Please note: One of the contributing stories is mine. I also edited the book. I am biased, but I do not profit from your purchase.

Looking Ahead

I am working with Dr. Vaughn K. Lauer, author of When the School Says No…How to Get the Yes!, which will be released this fall. We’re working on projects we hope will provide parents of children with special needs much needed information about the special education system. While there are things we’re not ready to announce, which I’m definitely excited about, there are also things up and ready for your consumption.

Vaughn and I are working to create podcasts that will help parents of children with special needs navigate the special education school system to ensure their children’s needs are met. We will soon be co-interviewing people who work within the special education system and who can provide listeners with valuable insights.

To kick off this effort Vaughn interviewed me. It’s up! Check it out.
