when public school can’t educate special education students: Kansas City

When a school district can’t appropriately meet the needs of your IEP child, the  IEP team (which includes the parent) can look at schools outside the district if the outside school is listed on a state-approved agency list the MODESE keeps.  The link for those outside schools/agencies is:

The IEP Center.com advocates helps parents deal with the public school for our kids with learning disabilities, autism, aspergers, cognitive deficits, cerebral palsy.  Advocates are available with extensive experience helping parents deal with public schools.  Get serious about your child’s schooling.

There are many things that aren’t revealed to parents that can help our kid get the right education.  Contact an advocate to learn more. Don’t be bamboozled. Public schools may be suspending children instead of considering an “outside placement”.cropped-100_0485.jpg

Special Education Legal Help Attorney Selection

Locating an attorney to help a parent deal with special education issues with the public school can be a daunting task.

If a parent hires a local attorney with no experience in the state’s special education processes, then a parent ends up funding getting this attorney educated about the process.

Parent’s can review state due process hearing panel decisions to learn names of attorneys who have handled those hearings in the past.   These decisions will list both school district and parent attorneys; a consumer will want to make sure they contact the right one.

Many of the attorneys for parents don’t do this line of work for the money.  So, they must charge fees to maintain their offices and staff.  If this is too cumbersome for a family, perhaps an advocate might be more affordable.

In Missouri there are some public interest law firms that accept some cases; usually a parent has to apply.
