If you are the parent of a child with special needs engaged in the never ending struggle to advocate for your child’s right to an education, the term “special ed” does not tend to bring a smile to your face. Indeed, the idea that there might be anything humorous about such things as the IEP process may seem very odd. But, as with all things, there can be a lighter side to the serious issues involved in parenting a child with special needs, and when it comes to special education issues, leave it to the excellent Wrightslaw website to offer humor as a valuable resource.
Take a look at Wrightslaw’s December 21, 2010 Special Education Advocate Newsletter , and I dare you not to find a chuckle or two there. While you’re there, sign up to receive the Newsletter – it’s free, and I highly recommend it for any parent navigating the special education quagmire.
