Autism's Declaration of Independence - Free Preview!
This book details Mr. Mayerson’s extensive career providing legal defense and counsel for ASD children and their families. While an understanding of the law and the applicable statutes is important, the primary focus of Autism’s Declaration of Independence is substance and practicality, with a constant eye on the ultimate outcome. Pretty much any student can “graduate” from the public education system. However, what steps can be taken to make sure that a student with the potential to do so has sufficiently acquired the functional skills for graduating to something that is personally meaningful and fulfilling for them? The transition to adulthood when IDEA’s educational entitlements come to an end is, of course, the “main event.” With so much uncertainty in the world of education, this book is a timely and crucial resource for all autism families and professionals.
