My 2012-2013 Summary of Special Education Caselaw Is Now Available

I have a legal update I want you to buy.

Our main goals in establishing this blog seven plus years ago were to provide a discussion of special education law issues from an impartial perspective and to put special education stakeholders and practitioners in touch with other available resources.  In view of these goals I have so far resisted the temptation to advertise products on the blog. I am rethinking this policy and would appreciate your thoughts.

Another purpose of the blog, however, was to inform people of the services I offer in the field of special education law.  I have decided, therefore, to occasionally let readers know on these pages some of the resources and services that I make available. So far, these would include only items that I have created myself.

Now available for purchase is a  259 page outline of the caselaw from courts and hearing officers that were issued in calendar years 2012-2013.  This is the same legal update outline that I use in part when training hearing officers, mediators, complaint investigators, monitors, state department of education staff and other persons.  The outline has been successfully used by hundreds of people as a starting point for legal research on a topic of interest or an issue in a special ed case.  Lawyers, advocates, parents, school officials and other readers of this blog will find the outline to be an invaluable tool as a starting point for their research.  It does not cover every decision, but it is a very thorough legal update. I prepare one each year for the caselaw primarily from the two previous years.

If you are interested in purchasing the outline, please send me an email at and I will send you all of the details. 

If there is a positive reaction to this outline, I will offer other outlines on various topics from time to time.  I appreciate your feedback on this matter.
