IEP Support in the News

The Mercury News featured an impressive article on August 20, also covered in the Contra Costa Times, entitles "Parents can get help with child's individualized education plan." 
 
It is encouraging that information of navigating the maze of the individualized education plan, IEP, is being disseminated to the public in an accessible way.  From
my own experience working with families having a child who is either in need of initial IEP assessment or who are trying to manage the IEP yearly goals and benchmarks, parents are not informed of their rights.  It is rare that a teacher or representative of the school will advocate for services for the child due to the budged concerns of the school and district.  In my opinion, this is not ethical and not in the best interest of the child nor family.
 
This article introduces the "Special Kids Foundation" who's mission appears to be informing parents of their rights, laws, and rules pertaining to IEPs and helping parents advocate for their child.
