Amazin Blue Press LLC is pleased to announce publication of its new title:
SchoolKidsLawyer’s Step-By-Step Guide to Special Education Law: Workbook for Parents, Advocates and Lawyers
by Robert C. Thurston, Esq.
This 266 page book is a user-friendly guide to assist families of children with disabilities, complete with forms, helpful tips, and links.
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, about 2.8 million school-aged children have a disability. In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) identified 1 in 68 children in the U.S. as being on the Autism Spectrum. Yet, most of these children are not getting equal access to education and most of their families don’t even know they have legal rights available.
This book not only makes special education more accessible to students with disabilities, but also explains in non-legal terms how to enforce their legal rights within the public school systems. The guide is applicable to all 50 U.S. states, D.C., Puerto Rico, and U.S. territories.
About the Author: Rob Thurston is a well-respected attorney that focuses his law practice on special education law. He has published numerous articles and lectures widely on the subject. He has two sons, the older of which has Autism and is a major inspiration for writing this book.
