Breaking: Our Linked In Special Edcuation Law Group Will Soon have 10,000 Members!
The Special Education Law Group that we started through this blog over on LinkedIn is just 20 short of 10,000 members. (That is not a typo! We just surpassed 7,500 in May of this year!) You should go to the group's site and take a look. There are always good discussions- sometimes even heated disagreements. If you lose this post, there is always a link to our LinkedIn group on the lefthand side of the blog. It is a part of our effort to use social media to spread good impartial information about special education law. Check out this rapidly growing group.
For those with long memories, we also used to have a Facebook group. At some point Facebook got all corporate in our face and "archived" our group because we were not constantly issuing nonsensical posts about what mood we were in after lunch, etc. The group still exists, but it is cumbersome. You can join by requesting membership.
There are also many other resources available on the lefthand side of the blog. You can sign up for a free subscription to the blog (three kinds of them.) Please subscribe; numbers are important in the blogosphere.
You can view the CADRE interview videos of me. (If the written word is not enough!)
You can also finds links to all sorts of other helpful websites, including CADRE, the IDEA statute and federal regulations, NICHCY - the information clearinghouse, and OSERS- the federal special ed agency. We also have links to some other great blogs.
We are always looking for new impartial resources to share. We don't recommend sites that favor either parents or school districts, even though there are plenty of good ones. We try to be impartial here. Let us know if you have any other recommendations.
