Parent testimonials about Students’ Rights education attorneys.
"My son has a learning disability and I felt like he was not receiving the best learning support from his school. The school was not implementing any useful modifications or providing key elements to assist my son with learning at his instructional level. So essentially, my son was sitting at a screen getting lost with a college level curriculum being thrown at him. The school also was not providing consistent data to support any significant progress for his Reevaluations or the IEP. Besides a Mother's guidance, a child's education is the best tool for survival out in the real world. So I am truly forever grateful to Scott Wolpert and his team for paving a successful pathway to a wonderful future for my son. Through Scott's leadership and hard work we won a huge settlement against the school. I will be honest with you, there are no good schools in Philadelphia to service the kind of "specific learning disability," that my son has. Scott's team has assisted me with school selection and placement for my son at a private school full-time. Scott was also able to negotiate fully paid tuition up to graduation along with transportation to and from the school. My son also has comp education funds placed into a Trust account, to fully support summer school programming, along with transportation, and Scott negotiated a 2 week overnight stay at a wonderful summer camp. I didn't have to pay for any of this! Timoney Knox has taken care of everything! My son is able to purchase a new computer and other educational products. This is beyond anything I could have ever imagined! I still can't believe a miracle like this was possible. I owe this team, (Patricia, Christine, Wendi, Brenda and God Bless anyone else who helped) I owe the biggest amount of gratitude a human being could ever muster. Thank you all soooooo much!!!!"Parent Students' Rights Education Lawyers Testimonials
COVID-19 has thrown parents and schools into uncertainty and new challenges, including how to provide related services to students with disabilities. Some schools are likely to use these challenges as a reason to discontinue all related services during school closures. Parents should accept that decision. Creative solutions are available and need to be fully explored by schools. We look at the obligations schools have through this crisis and some creative solutions to providing related services.
