Create an individualized education plan (IEP) and secure the education your child deserves!

Children with learning disabilities have different needs than other kids in special education -- let Nolo's IEP Guide: Learning Disabilities help you work with your child's school to make sure those needs are met.

This one-of-a-kind book walks you through the Individual Education Program process, providing all the instructions, suggestions, resources, and forms you need to understand the special education system.

Step by step, you'll learn how to:

  • understand your child's rights
  • prepare to make your case
  • untangle eligibility rules and evaluations
  • develop effective IEP goals
  • figure out the best programs, services and teaching strategies
  • get ready for IEP meetings
  • resolve disputes with the school district
  • do legal research on learning-disability issues

    The 5th edition has been updated to reflect the latest laws, federal regulations, and court decisions that affect the IEP process, and includes fully up-to-date forms, sample letters, and resources to help you every step of the way. Plus, read an expanded section about "appropriate" education measures resulting from a recent U.S. Supreme Court case, and get new details on eligibility for special education services for your child.

    Book Description:

    According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, 2.4 million children in the U.S. are diagnosed with learning disabilities – and these children have unique educational needs. While federal law entitles each of these children to an “appropriate” education, making sure teachers and school administrators are addressing a child’s special needs and providing the proper services can feel like an uphill battle. This book will help guide you through your child’s IEP process by explaining your child’s rights and teaching you how to draft educational goals and objectives, research school programs and alternatives, prepare for IEP meetings, and resolve disputes with your school district.

    From the Publisher:

    A specialized version of Nolo's bestselling and widely acclaimed Complete IEP Guide, this book focuses on learning disabilities (LDs) and is packed with LD-specific information -- including resources, information on testing, eligibility requirements, discipline problems and much more.

    The best available guide that combines legal information with practical advice. Gives parents the step-by-step instructions they need to navigate the complicated process of creating and maintaining an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) for their child with a learning disability.

    Over six million children in the U.S. have disabilities, and half of those have a learning disability. Federal law entitles each of these children to an "appropriate" education. The process for becoming eligible for and receiving that education is confusing and overwhelming. The parents of these special needs children are often already under significant stress, and very few can afford a lawyer to help. This book provides all of the law, explanation, guidance, and tools to help parents get through the IEP process and advocate for the best education for their child.

    The new edition contains the finalized regulations for Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA).
