    Advocacy is my jam, and I can’t believe I had only been made aware of this book recently. It’s one that I’ll definitely be recommending to parents along with some others. Well written, easy to understand, and gives great direction to parents. This can be an overwhelming process and road for many, but this book really helps to arm parents with direction/ process/plan.

    Fascinating look into how advocates perceive the special education process. Knowing full well that the authors note they are talking from a position of the most extreme cases, I still find it hard to believe that some schools fail to do the basics, like find a meeting time that works for parents and school staff.
