Steps In Special Education Hearings And Dispute Resolution
Compassionate Guidance In All Special Education Hearings And Challenges
When a student acts out in school, the institution has a duty to investigate whether a disability is causing behavioral issues. We guide students and their parents through the manifestation determination review process to guard the rights of a child. Congress found that disabled students were disproportionately being excluded from school activities and now requires that schools follow procedures to improve access to school activities. Behavioral intervention may be a positive step to providing better access to educational activities when a student acts out. School discipline related to suspensions or expulsions for students with special education needs is governed under the IDEA.
When a school district or institution fails to properly comply with the rules, parents and the child have a right to file a compliance complaint to address the failure of the system.
The special education process has many rules aimed at keeping the IEP program on the proper track. Parents and students are entitled to hearings to ensure that due process rights are vindicated in the disability assessment and placement processes. However, the existence of a hearing standing alone may not always succeed in vindicating your child’s educational rights. We are skilled in challenging matters in due process hearings and zealously litigating disputes when the process is improperly handled.
