1. SPECIAL ED ADVOCATE - WRIGHTSLAW SITE: REVISIONS, UPGRADES AND OTHER
NEWS

During the past few weeks, we made extensive revisions to The Special Ed
Advocate-Wrightslaw web site. The Wrightslaw Libraries contains hundreds
of articles, letters, cases, newsletters, and news items about special
education law and advocacy.

This issue of The Special Ed Advocate newsletter provides you with
information about these changes and lots of new LINKS.

We hope these revisions will reduce the "load time" and allow you to
access our Libraries more quickly.

The main changes are in the ADVOCACY LIBRARY. Now, when you go to the
ADVOCACY LIBRARY, you will find links to three separate areas:
