Education Law

Students, especially, those with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, autism, down syndrome, and other special needs, are entitled to have their educational needs met. Local schools and school boards should not give up on their special needs students and claim that there is nothing more that can be done. Weak excuses and lackluster efforts by teachers, administrators and school boards could violate Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). If you believe that the rights of your child have been violated or you need assistance from an attorney who will advocate for the rights of your child in need of an education directed to your child's needs, contact Law Office of Eshigo P. Okasili, LLC for a consultation and possible representation.
