Many of us have noticed the increase in students diagnosed with disabilities such as autism. These numbers include students, like my son, whose disabilities significantly impact their ability to live independently.

Catch our own Richard Isaacs as he participates in a helpful webinar.



Your local school district is obligated to meet the legal requirements mandated under IDEA to provide your child with the supports and services listed in the IEP.

Topics include:

  • What can we do to prepare our kids to transition back to the brick and mortar school building?
  • How can we be prepared for the next time we are faced with school closure?
  • What steps can we take to determine whether our child has regressed during the pandemic?
  • How can we hold our LEA accountable to provide compensatory services for March – June 2020?
  • What did we learn while our kids were receiving their education virtually from home?

I don’t have to remind you how difficult it can be to raise a child with special needs. However, I am going to do it anyway. Along with the challenges of maintaining the daily activities we call family, a parent to a child with special needs may also have to advocate and/or or fight to ensure their child has the services they need to succeed.



The Speical Education Handbook from the California Office of Administrative Hearings is helpful to parents as they advocate for their child.


“This Handbook describes what due process is and how it works in California. The IDEA intended parents to be able to use due process without an attorney. However, parents have a right to an attorney, at their own expense, and some, but not all, parents choose to have an attorney represent them. Parents also have the right to be accompanied by persons with specialized knowledge, although non-attorneys cannot represent Parents in mediation or in hearings. The Handbook is meant to help parents understand due process whether or not they have an attorney or other help. The Office of Administrative Hearings cannot give legal advice to anyone, but it is easier to be a part of mediation and a due process hearing if you understand the process. The Handbook will refer to the Special Education Division of the Office of Administrative Hearings as OAH.”
