View Robert K. Crabtree, Esq. Managing your documents under IDEA: Part I - What documents should you keep? 8/2/2006 Parents of children with special educational needs can easily be overwhelmed by papers. From the beginning of school to the time their child either graduates or “ages out” of entitlement to special education services, the accumulation of IEPs, evaluations, progress reports, correspondence, notes, journals, samples of the child’s work, medical records and so forth can fill several drawers of a file cabinet. Some may be tempted to throw out documents when they become too cumbersome to manage, but it may be a mistake to do so. Even the oldest documents in a child’s history can sometimes help parents make a case for increased or differen services for their child under IDEA.

View Robert K. Crabtree, Esq. Managing your documents under IDEA: Part II - What documents should you create? 8/9/2006 Why create any documents? One simple reason is that you may have to tell your child’s story to another person - perhaps to an evaluator, an advocate or lawyer, or a hearing officer – in order to get help, and documenting events as they occur will help you tell the story accurately and in good order. Another reason is that documents can help clarify understandings you reach with people – particularly with service providers or school administrators. Yet another reason is that a note written at the time something significant has happened may help to support you when you need to prove to another person that the event happened the way you claim it happened.

View Robert K. Crabtree, Esq. Mistakes People Make in the Special Education Process. Part 1 - Mistakes Made by Parents 6/20/2006 In my practice as a special education attorney for parents and students for more than twenty-five years, I have seen certain issues and frustrations expressed repeatedly. I have written a series of short articles to discuss some of the mistakes people make in the special education process that often cause or exacerbate those issues and frustrations. The articles focus in turn on mistakes commonly made by parents; school districts; independent evaluators; and, finally, advocates for parents and students.
