Your Questions About IEPs and Special Education Issues
We find the schools truly want the best for your child, however, with hundreds and thousands of children at any one school, it can be difficult to give you the attention you need. Still, start with the options available with the school and see if you can come to an acceptable resolution.
There are many reasons a student can not perform in a classroom, but it’s important that every child can succeed. That’s where an Individualized Educational Plan comes into play. By putting together, a plan custom made for your child’s needs, you’ll see opportunities for your child to learn in ways specific to them.
We highly recommend you meet with the school’s team on an annual basis to review 504 plan. Technically, it only has to be reviewed/renewed every three years but as you can imagine, your child’s needs change a lot from year to year. Never hesitate to request a meeting and our team can help ensure the school responds promptly to your request to ensure accommodations are implemented and fine-tuned
Sometimes a child needs significant assistance with their education, such as a child with Cerebral Palsy or Down Syndrome. These programs help ensure all children can receive an education and we’re here to help you receive the best care for your child while they are at school.
The law allows you to get outside testing to show an educational need for your child. We have quite a few professionals who we work with to provide these resources. Just reach out to us today to start the process.
Even with the outside assessments, schools often do not agree with the assessment or continually do not follow the recommendations of the professional. This is where we shine – working with the school officials to ensure acceptance and compliance.
That’s one of the reasons why you should work with an attorney. By bringing on The Orlando Law Group, you can let us be adversarial while you enjoy your child’s academic career. Plus, educators have worked with ESE children, taught based on an IEP and worked through similar situations all throughout their career.
As we work to ensure your child has the best education, all options will be on the table. Litigating in court rarely happens in these cases, but it will be considered if all other options fail.
This depends on the specifics of your case, but we do not consider your child’s education a profit center for The Orlando Law Group. We’re parents ourselves who understand the stress that comes from trying to weed through the bureaucracy of an education system. We want to do what we can to help parents like us. We also provide these services at a flat fee to provide some certainty in what the costs will be.
As with any legal case, the answer is dependent on your unique situation. But our goal is simple: Make sure your child has the support from their school to be successful and learn and to educate you on all the available resources to make you and your child’s experience better.
