"The book provides comprehensive coverage of federal mandates, statutes, regulations, and special education case law. I believe it will make a strong text for a Special Education Director program, special education law classes, and as a desk reference for practitioners."
Randall L. De Pry
Associate Professor of Special Education, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
"This book should be required reading for anyone in education–regular and special education alike. It is very readable and, overall, is an excellent introduction to what special education really means on a day-to-day operational basis."
Susan M. Dannemiller
Director of Special Education and Pupil Services, School District of Grafton, WI
"Anyone operating in special education cannot be without this guide. Detailed, in-depth reviews of the 2004 IDEA regulations, along with surveys of related issues, from statues of limitation and cases under other statutes to educational services, attorney's fees, claims processes, and more."
California Bookwatch Education Shelf, July 2006
"This is a badly needed book both for reference purposes as well as preservice and inservice practice. The book is well researched and well written and will quickly enhance the knowledge base regarding special education case law for the reader. It is a valuable resource for special education teachers and administrators as well as school district officials. In addition, attorneys will find the book to be an excellent aide in their practice. Finally, coursework in special education law, as offered in many university programs, has consistently suffered for the lack of a foundational textbook. This book fills that gap nicely."
