"Miriam Freedman's IEP and Section 504 Team Meetings...and the Law is a valuable resource for school administrators, special education teachers, general education teachers, and parents. She explains laws and regulations in an easy-to-read format with visuals and legal cases to drive home the important issues. Many of the topics covered are ones that IEP Team members debate based on opinions (ie. over-accommodating is not a good thing), not realizing that there is case law to guide their decision-making.
