Special Education Law
It is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education.
— Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483 (1954)
Sometimes your child needs a little bit of help to get access to a “Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)”, but even a small accommodation can make a big difference. As a parent, I recommend going with your gut – if you think your child might need some Special Education Services – ask – and make sure your child doesn’t fall through the cracks. Parents and caregivers know their children best – and if something seems off – or unusually difficult for your child at school (academically, socially or emotionally) don’t hesitate to take further action. Sometimes there are other solutions or ways to help your child and they won’t need services, but it can never hurt to try to figure out a way to help your child.
