helping law enforcement protect the community

Do you know what is being done in your community to protect the citizens from crime? Do you have a crime-watch program? Is there a community website that lists the current investigations and events that may have recently occurred? Law enforcement officials can only do so much when it comes to protecting a community. If your community is not active in protecting itself, crime rates could rise and many residents could find themselves the target or victim of crimes. Visit my blog to find out what you can do as a community to lower crime rates and help the law enforcement officials do their jobs.

When To Seek Help From A Special Education Attorney

Law Blog

Navigating the realm of special education can be overwhelming for parents. From creating Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) to understanding your child's rights, many complexities can arise. In some instances, seeking the help of a special education attorney may be necessary to ensure your child receives the appropriate support and services they are entitled to. Here are five instances when you may need to seek help from a special education attorney.

IEP Disputes:

One of the most common reasons parents seek assistance from a special education attorney is when there are disputes surrounding creating or implementing an IEP. If you feel that your child's IEP is not adequately meeting their needs or if there are disagreements with the school district regarding the services outlined in the plan, a special education attorney can help advocate for your child's rights.

Denial of Services:

If your child is being denied access to necessary services or accommodations, such as therapy services, assistive technology, or specialized instruction, it may be time to seek help from a special education attorney. They can review your child's case and help you navigate the legal avenues available to ensure that your child receives the support they require to succeed in school.

Suspension or Expulsion:

If your child is facing suspension or expulsion from school due to behavior related to their disability, a special education attorney can help address the situation. They can advocate for your child's rights and work to ensure that any disciplinary actions taken by the school comply with federal and state special education laws.

Transition Planning:

As your child approaches the age of transitioning out of public education, it is important to have a solid transition plan in place. A special education attorney can assist in developing a comprehensive plan that addresses your child's post-secondary goals, including vocational training, higher education, and independent living skills.

Lack of Progress:

If you feel that your child is not making adequate progress in school despite the services outlined in their IEP, it may be time to seek help from a special education attorney. They can review your child's educational records, assess their current educational needs, and work with you to develop a plan of action to address any issues that may be hindering your child's progress.

Navigating the world of special education can be challenging, but you do not have to do it alone. Contact a law office like the Law Office of Matthew Storey, APC to learn more.
