Brice Palmer Special Education Advocate

 

One spring day in 1995 a mother knocked on the door and asked for some help with a special education problem.
Special Education?  Never heard of it. .
She asked me to go to a meeting at the school with her.
Armed with a copy of the Vermont Special Education Regulations, a Netscape Navigator browser and primitive e-mail, we readied ourselves for the meeting.

Special education has been my life’s work ever since.
