Believe in My Child with Special Needs! Helping Children Achieve Their Potential in School

Helpful for parents and educators, gives you not only great best practice tools to use at home and school, but also the history, statistics and language you need to be an effective advocate for your child.

Every parent is filled with dreams, fears, hopes, and questions when preparing a child for school.  When that child has a disability, this exciting time can seem over whelming. That's why parents of a school age child with a disability need this upbeat, reassuring handbook to demystify complicated issues, help them celebrate their child's abilities and recognise possibilities, and show them how to be successful advocates throughout their child's education. Drawn on her own experiences as an educator and as a parent of a child with a disability, Mary Falvey helps readers understand their child's legal rights.  Pursue an inclusive education for their child, from preschool to high school and beyond. Collaborate respectfully with educators on their child's IEP (individualised education program). Promote their child's access to the general curriculum.  Encourage educators to use appropriate modifications and assessment strategies. Support their child as he or she develops friendships and develop transition plans to help their child achieve desired goals after high school. Candid and positive, this easy to read guide book is an invaluable companion for parents and a helpful source of insight for professionals seeking the parent perspective.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
