Event Description

When IDEA Disputes Arise, Create a Win-Win for Special Education Students

Emotions may run high when school districts and the parents of special education students disagree on the definition and implementation of an appropriate education.

With much at stake for the student at the center of the disagreement, a prompt resolution is critical.
While the parents and educators may not see eye-to-eye on how to provide the student’s education, there is a shared goal: to provide an appropriate education.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides a number of remedies to parents for resolving such disputes including negotiation, mediation, and when all else fails, litigation.

Selecting the remedy that best fits your situation and ensuring that it is effective, however, isn’t easy.

Join us for this special one-hour webinar to learn powerful strategies for resolving IDEA disputes.  During this informative session, special education attorney Hope M. Kirsch will reveal the common issues that lead to disputes, the most effective options available for resolving them, and the pros and cons associated with each dispute resolution process.
