Recent studies suggest that close to 10% of all school-aged children have a learning disability or some other special need that falls outside the all-too-common, one-size-fits-all approach to education.
For parents of “exceptional” or “special needs children,” seeking to improve the educational experiences of these children can be both frustrating and disheartening.
Yet in accepting Dr. Norm Forman’s unequivocal belief that all children deserve the best possible education, the act of advocating for your child can also be extremely rewarding.
Exceptional Children - Ordinary Schools is a comprehensive guide that outlines how to become a successful educational planner and advocate for your child.
Filled with practical advice for concerned parents, the book explores the ins and outs of school bureaucracies and presents the essential steps and effective communication techniques required for dealing with them. The work also examines the different tests and assessments that children with special needs routinely undergo, and includes a section on Special Education legislation to help parents fully understand their child’s legal and educational rights.
