Professors Colker and Waterstone, and the eight contributors to discrete chapters of Special Education Advocacy, have collaborated to try to provide students and lawyers with the basic tools they need to be effective advocates in educational cases involving children with disabilities.

Special Education Advocacy is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of special education advocates. By using examples and simulations based on real cases, the authors and contributors hope to illuminate the major principles that are important to successful advocacy on behalf of children with disabilities.
