Special Ed Advocacy: How To Push The System To Provide Exactly What Your Child Needs In Order To Be Successful In School

Fighting for services regarding SPD is always a problem (that IS changing!!) it seems.

So you need to fight, fight, fight with very specific ways in which the SPD interferes with your child's education. 

The schools are not set up to service these kids unless it significantly impacts their educational functioning.

First and foremost, you must spend a lot of time on one particular

Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, 2nd Edition. It has everything you will need to know about your rights, your child's rights, how to obtain services, etc. It is awesome! If you can not get the proper answers with the info, try to hook up with an advocate. What is not known, is how many advocates are specifically used to fighting for SPD kids.

Also, don't forget to personally talk to an OT about this... the first place to start, of course is an OT.
