Reviews - What do customers think about Hopes and Dreams: An IEP Guide for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders?

not helpful at all  May 25, 2006
I was so excited when I got this book. I thought it would educate me on what I needed to do for my child. It basically lays out the IEP process and doesn't give any indications on how to fight for services, which we all know is what usually happens. Find another book.
An Important Book  Feb 1, 2006
While this book doesn't tell you how to milk the system for all it's worth, it does a good job of laying out a plan that should help you and your child's teacher produce an optimal IEP. It's a helpful workbook that aids in the understanding and use of the IEP.
waste of time and money  Apr 20, 2005
Save your money....does nothing in the case of a difficult school district. The idea of "compromising and understanding" the teachers position is nice in a flowery perfect kind of world way....doesn't work when you are trying to get your kid the best you can.
