Families of children with special needs face unique challenges. These may include educational challenges due to the nature of the child’s disability. Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), students with disabilities are entitled to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). However, school districts may fail to provide disabled students with the necessary Goals, Accommodations, Services, and Placement that they are guaranteed under the law. This can lead to situations in which a student is disciplined for behaviors that are a manifestation of their disability, and are in essence punished for their disability. Grace Kim has the passion, knowledge and skill to assist your family through these and other special education and education law-related situations. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation regarding your child’s case.
