We guide parents to establish eligibility for special education services — a process that may be more complicated than expected.
For example, a clinical diagnosis alone is usually insufficient. We show parents what is needed to meet the legal requirements, such as demonstrating that the child needs specialized instruction to succeed at school.
Even after special education eligibility is established, families face a variety of issues that can be discussed during our consultation.
We have seen many families wait too long to seek legal guidance. Without expertise in special education law or experience navigating the process, families often lack effective strategies to improve their child’s educational program.
