Summary "Advocating for a child who learns differently can sometimes feel like an isolating and daunting task. This book reminds families that they are not alone. "When Your Child Learns Differently" is a compassionate guide to help families navigate special education services from the inside out. Drawing on experiences as both a parent and special education teacher, the author shares valuable information about special education language, policy, procedures, and supports while reminding families that they are the most important advocates in their child's success plan. Accessible and encouraging, this guide humanizes the journey of caring for children who learn differently. Readers will leave the book empowered with practical policy knowledge and energized by the belief that, with love and high expectations, almost anything is possible"-- Provided by publisher.
