Chances are you’ve read a Wrightslaw book or attended a Wrightslaw training! I’m thrilled to host Pete Wright, THE special education guru, on today’s podcast! Pete tried a special education case, Florence County School District Four vs. Shannon Carter, before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1993 and has been famous in special education circles since! His books and trainings bring practical information to parents in language they can understand. Pete and I do a roundtable of sorts in today’s episode. We talk about his concept of a Letter to a Stranger, something I use at least weekly in my own special education law practice. Pete stresses effective communication throughout the school year and goes into details ith tips and strategies you can implement now! Having built a successful business that empowers parents to advocate for their children, Pete explains why advocacy is so important from his perspective, and it’s powerful. Then, we do a rapid fire round, talking about quick tips for behavior supports, inclusion, SLD eligibility. If you need inspiration, THIS should do it! Enjoy, friends!
