New school years can challenge special needs parents

Parents who have children with special needs might dread the back to school season. This is because of the need to have Individualized Education Program meetings and deal with some of the challenges that come with the new year. It is much easier to deal with this when your child is at a school familiar with his or her needs. When this doesn't happen, the uncertainty can often be very stressful.

A child who has special education needs, whether this is due to a physical or mental limitation, deserves to get the necessary help to thrive. This can prove to be challenging because of the limitations of the public school system. Still, parents who choose to entrust the public schools with their children should make sure that their child is getting the best services possible.

We know that you might have trouble with describing exactly what your children need to thrive at school. This can make going through the IEP process difficult. We are here to help you assert your child's rights in all applicable situations. You don't have to go through this alone. We can be the logical voice that steps in when your emotions are too much to handle.

It is important to remember that your child does have specific rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. We are here to let you know what those rights are so that you can figure out what plan of action you need to follow. There isn't any reason for your child's educational life to suffer because of issues within the school system.
