Parent's Complete Special Education Guide provides descriptions of the special education programs, laws, regulations and procedures. Straight forward summaries of screening, developmental information, and education programs are given for both preschool age and for older children. A short section on early intervention is also included.
Parent's Complete Special Education Guide provides a excellent guide for the rules and procedures you will be following in working with the education system. It is also a good guide to the type of information that the school system will be evaluating for your child for the different categories of disability.
You will want to supplement this text with information on specific disabilities for detailed discussions with your school. In addition, the distinction between early intervention, preschool, and school programs could be clearer.
For parents attempting to unravel the special education process for their child, the Parent's Complete Special Education Guide provides a good introduction to these complex procedures.
