How to Advocate Successfully for your Child


How to Advocate Successfully for Your Child: What Every Parent Should Know About Special Education Law

by Greer M. Gurland, Esq.

Imagine being the parent of a school-age child with a learning disability and getting the chance to talk with a knowledgeable special education attorney who, like a trusted friend, truly wants to make your life easier. That heart-to-heart chat comes to life in Ms. Gurland's new book. "How to Advocate..." delivers a mega-dose of power for parents with passion and insight. The author's legal background (Harvard Law School, '94) is key, but it is her position as a mother of five special-needs children ages 6-13 gives her even more authority. Ms. Gurland does an exemplary job of demystifying special education (no "legalese") and of answering critical questions that parents face with empathy. You will think of Ms. Gurland as a friend well before the last page. Applicable in all fifty United States. Also available in Spanish. - Blue Ink Reviews
