IEP Team Meetings can be overwhelming and stressful, especially when a school district is not considering input for the student's best interest or is offering inappropriate goals, placement, and services for the student.  If this sounds like your experience, reach out to us for an IEP evaluation and for us to develop an advocacy plan before your student's next IEP Team Meeting.  

Not every special education issue requires filing a complaint through a Request for Due Process Hearing, but when it does, we are ready.  We thoroughly analyze school records and share with you the appropriateness of your child's academic progress, educational placement and special education services.  We will brainstorm solutions with your Family and provide representation at Resolution Meetings, Mediation, Hearing, and Appeal, if necessary.

INFORMAL DISPUTE RESOLUTION (IDR)

When issues arise, a school district may propose Informal Dispute Resolution (IDR) to resolve a student's concerns. While IDR is not mandatory, parents often feel pressured into entering the process, and even worse, they feel obligated to accept a settlement offer that is not completely desirable for their student.  In some instances, parents sign settlement agreements without fully understanding their rights.  Although IDR may resolve some issues, it is not always in the best interest of the student.  If you have a pending IDR settlement agreement offer, we will thoroughly review it with you and give you our professional opinion before you make a decision.  

 

Suspensions and expulsions can negatively impact a student's education greatly, especially when the school district's actions are unjustified.  If a student is eligible or should be eligible for Special Education, there are additional rights and protections available.  Don't let your student receive multiple disciplinary actions without reviewing the root of the problem.  Call us right away!  We will thoroughly investigate the matter and develop a plan to support your student's needs at school, if appropriate. 

DEFENDING SCHOOL DISCIPLINE ACTIONS
