EP. 62 Special Education Law; Understanding I.D.E.A. to become a CONFIDENT Advocate for your exceptional child! with Special Guest Catherine Michae

May 10, 2022

Welcome Back, Parents!  

Do you have an exceptional child? Exceptional is defined as unusual, atypical, unique, or special. Having an exceptional child who is challenged by autism, ADHD, dyslexia, down syndrome, cognitive delays, or any other challenge can make the world seem like it is one uphill battle.

Today's episode provides a resource to help parents advocate for their children in the school system, what accommodations are available to your child and when should a parent consider getting an attorney - what situations really are ones in which you need advice?

Meet my guest Catherine Michael.
