Dear friends and colleagues,
Still shopping? Here’s an idea!
If you need some creative,
practical, and fun little gifts for friends or relatives who are educators, school administrators, parents (or grandparents) of students with
disabilities, or anyone interested in school reform—particularly of special
education—or even for yourself—here they are!
These little flipbooks are written by me. It’s been gratifying that
they’ve been so well-received around the country. See these comments about…
IEP and Section 504 Team Meetings… and the Law
book was helpful to me, so thanks…It gets opened prior to any meeting I
have at the school.”
education director: “I
attended your seminar yesterday and got this book. I have to tell you, I am
LOVING your little orange book. I read it last night. I cannot fully express
what a find it is for me. I want to buy it for my entire staff and all the
administrators. It is informative, it cuts to the chase, and it’s entertaining!
Who would ever think a book about special education law could be funny!
Team Meetings book. The layout, the simplicity, and the explanations were
all great! Your book helped us achieve a better IEP for our daughter.”
Grades, Report Cards, etc… and the Law
Education administrator: “I found your book lying on a co-worker’s
desk and thought I’d glance at it. Well, I couldn’t put it down! It’s a
wonderful, straightforward guide. How do I get a copy?”
education director: “I am
ordering more books. The book is wonderful.”
Education–12 Steps to Transform a Broken System
Driscoll, former Massachusetts Commissioner of Education: Attorney Miriam Freedman has provided a
wealth of information to parents, school people, and other interested
parties. Special education laws and
rules can be very complex, but Miriam has boiled special education down to what
it should look like, in an easily readable format. Hopefully, all parties will take heed and
students will be much better served.
J. Schultz, Ph. D., Clinical Neuropsychologist, Harvard Medical School, and author
of Nowhere to Hide: Pay attention, Folks. The Emperor IS Naked! This little book is
packed with truths about special education.
Attorney Miriam Freedman has the experience and courage to tell it like
it is and to rationally explain how it SHOULD BE! This book is not anti-special
education. It’s pro-kids—all kids. A
must-read for all trainees who are being spoon-fed the archaic dictates of
years past, and for policymakers at all levels.
K. Howard, Chair of Common Good: Fixing
Special Education invites discussion and action and is a must-read
for anyone interested in improving special education and restoring balance to school decision
making. I am happy that Ms. Freedman has shared her wide experience in this
compelling little book. I hope it starts an important national conversation.
LeBlanc, President, Small Business Success:
Miriam Freedman shares candidly what you need to know and what needs to
be done in order to protect and serve the best of what our kids need. Read carefully and get involved. Our future
depends on it.
Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy and
