If the law says that, then why isn’t your child receiving help at school? Why is he or she falling further behind? Will she learn to read? Is he getting what he needs to prepare him for life? Are you getting calls at work because there’s a “behavior” issue?
Special education law is complex. It’s easy for parents to feel confused and overwhelmed by "504 and IEPs." Some parents might even be tempted to give up because you can feel "outnumbered" and overwhelmed by reports and terminology you don't understand. Don’t give up. IEPs should provide educational benefit, preparing your child for further education, employment, and independent living. And that’s our goal for your child.
Having an advocate at your next IEP meeting can calm your anxiety. Our experience includes advocating for children with autism, ADD, developmental delays, emotional disturbance, intellectual disabilities, and speech and language impairments.
