CALIFORNIA SPECIAL EDUCATION LAW IS COMPLEX
Educating a child with special needs can be overwhelming. Parents not only have to deal with their child’s unique challenges and the impact of those needs on the family and home, but they are also expected to become experts in special education law. Too often, school districts take advantage of these stressed and overwhelmed parents. They offer the bare minimum of services they know they are legally required to provide—and sometimes less.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO STRUGGLE ALONE.
Parents who are already exhausted from the demands of a special needs child often feel they have no option but to accept whatever services the local school district offers. Often they are unaware of their legal rights, or they believe that hiring an attorney to advocate for their child will be cost-prohibitive. So they attempt to muddle through the system on their own. They suffer, and so does their child.
