Does your child say everyone is smarter than them? Is there an academic gap between your child the rest of the class? Are you being called on a regular basis to pick up your child due to poor behavior? Is your child refusing to attend school or complete homework? Does it take your child an excessive amount of time to complete homework? Is your child coming home and melting down at the end of the day? If any of these are applicable, you are likely to need someone to advocate on behalf of your child.
While we zealously advocate for our clients, we use a collaborative approach with each school district which has enabled us to resolve the majority of matters amicably before they escalate to litigation, thus saving our clients money and preserving the relationship between them and their school district. We have resolved hundreds of cases involving residential and private school placements; implementation of multisensory reading, writing, and math programs; related services (counseling, speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy, transportation and nursing services); behavioral interventions; the assignment of a paraprofessional and/or teacher of the deaf; and use of assistive technology and/or auditory equipment.
We have both special education attorneys and education advocates on our team who each have different areas of specialization. We work closely as a team to develop creative and comprehensive strategies to yield positive outcomes for all of “our” children.
