Every Child Deserves A Meaningful Education

California special education law support

On Behalf of | Mar 8, 2024 | Education Law |

Providing care for a child with a mental, emotional or physical disability can be both rewarding and stressful. Parents often need additional support from family, friends and their community to help meet their children’s needs. Many of these children struggle in an academic environment, which is why California special education law provides resources to help such students achieve their full potential.

Under California law, every student has a right to a free and thorough education. A child with special needs must be afforded the same opportunities that students without disabilities receive. Parents of a student with special needs can request an individualized education program (IEP), which can provide numerous resources to accommodate their child so that he or she can have a positive learning experience in a mainstream school setting.

Education law support for students who were wrongfully denied an IEP

Obtaining an IEP involves a process that includes parents meeting with teachers and other school officials to evaluate a student’s learning status and abilities. Sadly, many children have been denied IEPs and other special learning accommodations when, in fact, they qualify for them under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act also protects a student’s right to a tailored learning program in a public school.

If you’re unsure how to request an IEP or are struggling to resolve an education law issue in a California school district, you’ll be glad to know that support is available. The Law Office of Meagan Nuñez provides much needed legal support to help students obtain the full range of educational assistance to which they are entitled.
