“Belinda Karge has done an excellent job writing a comprehensive, comprehensible resource for special education. Her attention to the legal and pedagogical aspects of serving students receiving special education services and their families makes her book valuable for individuals in a variety of roles. This book provides an important contribution in its efforts to help special education leaders and advocates—including parents—understand their shared responsibilities to one another and to the children who qualify for services currently or may qualify after evaluation.”

Mary F. Rice, assistant professor of literacy, University of New Mexico

“Educational equity is more than the latest buzzword. If we truly believe that all students can learn at high levels, then it is essential that we provide each student with equitable access to learning. This resource provides a wealth of information and tools to aid in supporting leaders to make this a reality within their schools. Often, leaders are not as well-versed in the laws and regulations governing special education as other areas. Having the ability to have this quick reference at hand will be very beneficial.”
