Free, appropriate public education is available to any student with a disability who needs special education, or to a child who has a disability who needs accommodations for the disability. In some cases, a parent may need an attorney to get the school to even start the process to classify the child as a special needs child, or as a child with a disability who needs an accommodation.
School administrators at times will wrongfully administer discipline or suspend a child with a learning disability or other disability in a manner contrary to law.
A child with a disability may have social or behavioral problems manifesting from or related to his/her disability. Sometimes a school will wrongfully suspend such a child without first making the proper inquires and determinations to see if it appropriate, and by failing to consider and apply modifications, and by not following proper due process.
Hope A. Lang will assist you to enforce your child's rights under the IDEA, determination of eligibility for special education/related services, development and proper implementation of the Individual Education Plan (IEP). If your child is handicapped under Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act, she can assist you in obtaining the accommodations and services that your child needs.
Hope A. Lang also can represent the child if the school is discriminating against him/her, harassing or allowing others to harass the child in violation of the Law Against Discrimination; by way of example, harassment because of the child's perceived gender orientation.
