Summary:
"The authors examine the importance of equitable family advocacy in special education professionals' work, in order to redress inequities that often challenge children's and families' rights to sufficient and equitable educational outcomes. Harry and Ocasio-Stoutenburg draw on intersectionality to inform the work of advocacy. In the words of the authors, "our purpose is to change the language of advocacy from its original meaning of one who speaks for-to one who speaks with." Advocacy is not a "one size fits all" kind of work. The authors examine the socio-historical context of advocacy work, its further development in the Civil Rights Era, and provide grounded examples of doing advocacy work at the school/community level, as well as at the policy level. The book intends to provide a working model of co-constructed advocacy to benefit all families"-- Provided by publisher.
