Florida Attorneys Support Families Whose Children Need Special Education or Individualized Education Programs
Experienced education lawyers help overcome school districts' reluctance to provide necessary assistance in the Winter Haven area
Parents usually know best when it comes to the educational needs of their children. The law provides special education and individualized education programs (IEPs) to ensure that every student receives the education they deserve. However, educational authorities sometimes do not correctly identify an individual student's particular needs. The attorneys of Amy Elizabeth Smith P.A. are compassionate, determined advocates who help families in the Winter Haven area and throughout Florida secure a learning environment suited to their child's skills and limitations.
Understanding counselors represent all types of special needs children
Appealing to educators who have refused to provide the requested assistance can be complicated and intimidating. Our Florida lawyers take the time to explain the process and seek a suitable learning environment for any type of challenge your child might have, including:
- Autism or Asperger syndrome
- Hearing or visual impairment
- Orthopedic injury or other physical ailment
- Traumatic brain injury
- Learning disability
- ADHD or attention deficit disorder
No matter the specific condition, we work on your child's behalf to find an educational plan that allows them to succeed. We work with experts in the field and any relevant teacher, administrator, school board member, medical professional or regulatory authority who can aid your cause.
Compassionate advocates guide parents through the special education process
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act gives parents of children with disabilities the right to have their child evaluated to determine if they are eligible for special education. For a child having trouble in school, every day counts, so we will seek a quick, complete assessment. Our attorneys will also review relevant documents and use them to protect your child's right to learn according to their abilities.
Dedicated attorneys strive to help develop an effective IEP
Having your child recognized as someone who needs additional assistance is only the first step. After that, we can help you collaborate with school officials and others to craft an IEP that meets your child's particular needs. This will include specific measures the school must take. Once a program is in place, we can keep track of the child's progress and ensure that periodic school updates are sent as required by law. Learning can be a complicated process, so we can propose necessary adjustments at any time.
