NDSS and NDSC have organized one day, today, December 3, to draw attention to the IDEA Fairness Restoration Act (H.R. 4188).
We urge you to contact your Representative TODAY with the following message about the IDEA Fairness Restoration Act:
Please co-sponsor the IDEA Fairness Restoration Act (HR 4188). It will level the playing field for parents who must advocate for a free, appropriate education for their child.
If you wish to call your Representative, you can find out the name and phone number at: http://www.ndss.org/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=174.
If you wish to send an email, go to: http://capwiz.com/ndss/issues/alert/?alertid=10597931. A sample email is available (that you can edit to meet your needs). The email will be sent to the correct Representative based on your home address.
The IDEA Fairness Restoration Act was introduced in the House of Representatives on November 13, 2007 by Congressman Chris Van Hollen and Congressman Pete Sessions. H.R. 4188 would allow prevailing (winning party) parents to recoup expert fees and related costs in proceedings under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Additional background information is provided at http://capwiz.com/ndss/issues/alert/?alertid=10597931.
Please contact your representative today.
If you have questions or comments about this action alert, contact Ricki Sabia at rsabia@... or Susan Goodman at SusanG1961@....Sandy, Illinois (alpy2@...)
