When you buy a house or a car, you do you do your best to be an informed consumer. You do your research about the product, interest rates, loan details and warranties. When you send your child with special needs to school, you should also be an informed parent. Parents with children who have special needs must be informed and know their rights and responsibilities in Special Education.

Listen to The Inclusive Class Podcast on 03/22/13 @ 9 AM EST, as Nicole and Terri interview Mary Eaddy. Mary is Executive Director of PRO-Parents of S. C.; the South Carolina Parent Training and Information Center (PTI), where she has been affiliated since it’s inception in 1990. She has provided extensive training related to special education, parent involvement, disabilities and non-profit management at the state and national level.  However, Mary’s most relevant knowledge and passion for her work comes from parenting two children with learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder and being grandmother to a young man with developmental delays.
Mary will discuss ways in which parents can become more informed about their child's special education and why it is so important to be informed. She has insight in how extra services can be obtained as well as what the school must legally provide for your child.
