School Discipline

There are many reasons why a student may be disciplined by a school—and only a few of those reasons relate to a young person’s simple misbehavior. Much more often, there are underlying issues affecting the situation—students who have undiagnosed learning disabilities or attention issues, students have disabilities that are misunderstood or underestimated, or students who are bullied, are in some cases unfairly suspended or expelled from school. In these cases it is critical to work with a special education attorney or advocate. We can work with your family to get your child back in school quickly and also to identify and address any contributing underlying factors. We also represent children in general education (those without disabilities) in school discipline matters.
