When my son entered the public school system I wanted to ensure he was included in the regular classroom. I was unaware of the Special Education Laws and my rights as a Parent. The Parent Advisors at PEAL were so helpful in providing me the resoursces to educate myself and be the best advocate for my son. Today my son is included in the regular ed classroom 70% of the time. He is part of the community, he participates in school and comunity activites, he is well knows in our community and accepted by all. He has friends and he is progressing very well. Kai loves school and the school staff has been very supportive and open to our suggestions for my son.
