The special education or IEP process is complicated and frustrating! School staff often mean well, but ultimately have the school’s interest to protect, leaving parents feeling that no one is acting exclusively in their child’s best interest. Additionally, making sense of evaluations, test scores, and IEP progress can become a full time job.
Just a few things that a special education attorney or special education advocate can help you address:
Parents' knowledge or intuition is often different from what they are hearing from teachers. Parents are almost always right when they "feel" something is wrong.
In each of these situations, we will work with you to analyze your child’s needs and progress, and to ensure that their rights and best interest are paramount. In some cases this may mean developing a plan for you to continue advocating for your child independently, and in other cases you may decide that you want active involvement from a special education lawyer or special education advocate.
