It can be extremely frustrating for parents to watch their children struggle in school, especially when they do not know the cause and/or how to help their kids. What many parents do not realize, however, is that the public schools are obligated by law to help children succeed in school despite certain health, academic, and behavioral difficulties. An experienced special education attorney can help parents:
- Understand whether their children are eligible for accommodations and/or support services through their school district.
- Identify, request, and advocate for the accommodations and/or support services that their children may be entitled to at the school district’s expense.
- If appropriate, seek out-of-district services and/or placement for their children, funded by the school district.
- Advocate for their children in the event they face suspension or expulsion from school and/or have been accused of a crime.
