									In this article I am going to tell you how to make the most of the
special education process when it comes to educating your special needs
child.

The reason I am going to tell you this is because it is so easy to become
overwhelmed when it comes to matters concerning the education of your
child and finding your way around the special education process.

In this article I am going to teach you

The main mistakes that parents of special needs children make in the
Special Education Process
How to make sure that you get the most out of the Special Education
Process

Firstly, the main mistakes parents make in the special education process
are mainly around poor record keeping and not understanding what they are
signing or agreeing to. Withholding information, misinterpreting
information and making ill-informed decisions are other mistakes that
parents tend to make.

As a parent, not only do you know your child better than anyone else, but
there will be some information that can only be gathered by specialists.
This information will be very necessary for special educational people to
access to decide the best education plan for your child.

If you are unsure of anything, you need to ask for clarification and be
very sure of the understanding of anything you are asked to sign as it is
very hard to get some things overturned or amended when you formally
agreed in writing.

Do not feel under too much pressure to sign something you have not had a
chance to read in full or if you feel you are not quite sure if you have
understood correctly what the implications are if you do sign.

Poor communication with the school or difficult relationships with
educational personnel resulting in decisions being made for your child
whether wrong or right also cause great distress for parents who are
trying to find their way around the special needs process.

To make sure you get the most of the special education process, it is
vital you keep correct and up to date records about your child and agree
to have your special needs child take part in relevant and important
educational and developmental assessments.

Having your child assessed is never easy but it is so important if they
are to get the most from the educational system they are either part of
or will form part of.

It is also vital to keep up a professional relationship with all relevant
special education staff and not to withhold information which may be
pertinent to your Child's educational welfare.
