This handbook helps you navigate the special education process using facilitation
skills and strategies. It is not a comprehensive set of special education rules and
Federal law talks about parents as partners in the special education process.
However, sometimes even experienced parents feel like an outsider.
As parents, you play a unique role. You’re the only one on your child’s team who can
provide their history.
You’re committed for the long haul. This makes you a key player on your child’s team
when developing the Individualized Education Program (IEP).
