KPS4Parents is simply the best non-legal advice website available regarding how to properly advocate for your child. “KPS4Parents was formed with a singular vision: to ensure that all eligible children, regardless of disability, receive the Free Appropriate Public Education (“FAPE”) to which they are entitled and that this can best be accomplished through effective parent advocacy. Everyone is impacted when the special education system fails. Whether you are a student, a parent or other family member, or a concerned tax-payer, you have a vested interest in making sure that special education works for everyone who needs it.”
