Years Of Experience In Dealing With Special Education Matters
Educational institutions face a unique set of challenges and legal issues in meeting the educational needs of students with special needs.
School districts strive to develop individual education plans (IEP) best suited for each individual student’s special needs. The lawyers at Lashly & Baer, P.C., have the experience to serve school districts in developing IEPs, attending IEP meetings and handling due process proceedings, if necessary. Similarly, we are familiar with all requirements of a Section 504 Plan and proceedings related thereto. Specifically, we have experience with the ADA, IDEA and other laws that govern the services school districts provide for children with autism, ADD and ADHD, Down syndrome, anxiety, depression and other developmental disabilities.
We regularly handle the following legal issues for our clients:
- 504 policies and plans
- Health care plans
- IEP meetings
- Eligibility meetings
- Manifestation determination meetings
- Due process, including resolution meetings and due process hearings
- Accommodations and modifications
- Seclusion and restraint
