Special ed kids are starting a new school year. Take some time now, at the beginning of the new school year, to benchmark, collect tools and resources, and schedule conversations with teachers and school officials.

It's not a well known fact, but any party can request mediation at any point whenever a conflict arises with regard to a child's Individualized Education Plan.
