Final Note

SPED*NET, Special Education Network, Ltd., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational corporation, encourages all parents of children with special needs to become active participants in the special education partnership.

We value your input. With this guide, we strive to provide information that is current and accurate. Our field of endeavor is ever-evolving. Laws and regulations are amended, administrations change, new theories are developed. Every child is singular and unique.

Consequently, the reader must appreciate that information and ideas gained from our publication must be discussed with your own personal caregivers, professional sources, experts and, when necessary, specializing attorneys.

Reliance on advice, opinions, and recommendations must come only from those specialists who have first-hand awareness of each particular history and situation.

We will make every effort to correct errors brought to our attention, but nothing in this material is to be considered as the rendering of legal advice.

If you have further questions or need additional information, please visit

e would like to acknowledge the special education parents of Greenwich, CT and the Greenwich Public Schools for sharing, in the spirit of cooperation, their original groundbreaking special education handbook. You have been our inspiration.
