As a parent of a child with a developmental disability, you are entitled to certain services provided in a voluntary, nondiscriminatory manner. These rights include the right to be evaluated, the right to be involved and informed and the right to consent.
In some situations, a parent may need a special needs attorney to help him/her fight for his/her child’s education. The system can be overwhelming; sometimes, it can feel like you are a small voice fighting against the wind. In these situations, a special needs attorney can help ensure the appropriate actions are taken to benefit you and your child.
