“The guidance in this book is an invaluable tool to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of the Special Education program.”
—Vicki L. Barber, Ed.D., former Superintendent of El Dorado County Office of Education, Co-Executive Director of California’s Statewide Task Force on Special Education


Policymakers
For anyone engaged in setting education policy or state law, The Promise of Special Education is an essential, comprehensive resource necessary to inform any decision that touches the $80 billion spent annually in support of students with disabilities.

Educators
For school administrators and boards of trustees, reading The Promise of Special Education is a first-step must-read to ensure a full alliance (or partnership) with school staff assigned with the challenge of working under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act—one of the most complicated and litigious of all federal mandates.

Parents
For parents and guardians of the more than 6 million children with disabilities nationwide, The Promise of Special Education is a one-of-kind resource that educates on how school programs operate and why, in a readable and understandable format.
