As we wait for Christmas, I've been giving thought to what I still need to write before the new year. I've been looking for "holes" in my information and found I hadn't written about Due Process. I've written an article to remedy that problem, adding a link to the Wrightslaw website, written by special education lawyers who represent families.
I have never been to due process, and hope to avoid it by all means. I am aware that the decisions we make may put us at risk, but I usually let my supervisors make those decisions that might lead to due process. I don't recommend how many minutes to give students speech: I leave that to the speech language pathologists. One of the ironies here in the Clark County School District is that the district doesn't pay well enough to compete with hospitals for Speech Language Pathologists or Occupational Therapists.
