Welcome to the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation’s (DMRF) new Special Education blog! We saw many of you at the DMRF Children and Family Symposium in August in Chicago. With this blog we hope to bring you an ongoing primer and conversation about educating children with disabilities, your rights as parents, and suggestions about working with schools.
We now also have a special email address for you to submit confidential questions or concerns. While we cannot give you specific legal advice, and this blog does not constitute legal advice, we can try to address issues that come up in a general and broad manner and offer some useful information.
The blog will cover the federal laws pertaining to special education, assistive technology, parent advocacy, transition to college, rehabilitative services, and more. In addition to a schedule of topics, we will also share relevant special education happenings as they come up. Comments and suggestions are always welcome. We want this blog to be informative and helpful for you! Contact us any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
The first six segments of the blog will be Special Education 101: A- F
