Being a parent of a special needs child can be difficult. Even when your child has minimal special needs, the stress can be overwhelming. The one area that is the greatest stressor of all tends to be education. A child’s education encompasses so many facets of their life, not just their academics. As such, monitoring all of the special needs requirements that are involved in a single school day, can be a daunting experience for parents.
Because of this many parents turn to educational advocates for assistance. Some advocates are well schooled in the academic, social, psychological and behavior needs of children with disabilities. These advocates can be of great assistance when it comes to reviewing your child’s IEP baselines, goals, progress notes, services and accommodations.
But oftentimes the issues and stumbling blocks parents face within the education system are more complex, requiring legal assistance. When a school district fails to provide your child with the necessary academic support, speech and language services, occupational therapy assistance and behavioral modifications to reinforce your child’s education, your child can begin to struggle and fall behind their typical peers.
When this happens parents can get assistance from Special Education Law attorneys. These attorneys specialize in identifying the areas of deficit in your child’s education and the legal remedies available to these students. The process of legally advocating for your child can be done with the expertise to help your child receive all of the benefits they are entitled to, while still carefully preserving a good educational relationship between students, parents, teachers, administrators and districts.
