If your child is so anxious about school that she refuses to go, or your school has evaluated your child and found learning deficits but still refuses to find eligibility, we may be able to help. Many districts go out of their way to avoid finding a student eligible for special education and will even tell parents an IEP will harm their child and make them feel different and make them an outcast.

If you have any questions about whether your child is eligible for special education services, please seek legal assistance soon.
