    •    Parents have the right to advocate for appropriate services and education for their child. Parents may not be aware of their rights or may have no idea how to advocate for themselves and their child. There are laws and statutes at the Federal, State, and local (school district) level that parents should be aware of, as well as web and local resources. Think broadly…not only the rights of parents of children with special needs but also parents of children who don’t speak English, gifted children, children with behavioral issues, etc. Think of parents who want to opt out of testing, families whose religious or personal beliefs may conflict with program customs or policies, families who want access to their child’s records…families who just have a conflict with a particular teacher. What are their legal rights on a Federal, State and local level?
