On the top of the home page you will see a page that says “purchase books.” Click that and you will be able to purchase Disability Deception or Slaying Special Education Dragons or both (without having to go to Amazon). It is a secure site for credit cards (SSL license)!

I am so excited that the book is finally ready for parents to purchase because I have been working hard on it! It is written in question format and contains a ten step roadmap, to help you navigate the special education maze, as you work towards an appropriate education for your child!

                                        ***********            New domain associated with my Website and my books:

When parents who are looking for special education advocacy advice and use a search engine to find help, they can now use: special education advocacy 101 to find my information (www.specialeducationadvocacy101.com).  

After consulting with a few people I decided I needed to make it easier for parents to find my information thus the new domain. You can still go to www.disabilitydeception.com and find my information!   


If you have a burning question about special education that you would like to ask me---feel free to send me an E-mail (at JoAnn@disabilitydeception.com).  I will take out any identifying information so that the child’s privacy is upheld!
