Teachers, therapists, health professionals, and even child advocates who provide services to these children often use terminologies and specialized language and forget that the parents cannot understand them including the most astute. b) In paragraph three, the writer states that even the most astute parents cannot understand the acronyms used by the professionals. Therefore the parents fail to understand them due to lack of knowledge and they feel embarrassed about that (Wilmshurst and Alan 241). c) In paragraph five, the writer makes appeals that include the use of simple language that the parents can easily understand and also parents accessing websites that can assist in understanding the various acronyms used in special education.4) the passage is more persuasive in paragraph five, where the writer comes up with ways in which the problem could be solved where special educators can be made aware of the problem and then they communicate with the parents in manner that they are likely to understand. Parents are also encouraged to access websites that can assist them in understanding the various terminologies used (Wilmshurst and Alan 208).5) The writer has created an active voice.
