Is Your Child Eligible for Special Education?

I have heard more than one parent say, “It is SOOOO hard to get your child eligible for services!”  My answer is, “Don’t Give Up!”  Often, you as the parent, are the best judge of whether your child might need services.  Just because a school tells you your child is not eligible, does not mean it is true.  With the help of a good attorney who analyzes your case and proper evidence in the form of a licensed doctor or psychologist, you may be able to change the district’s mind!  There are many resources on line, but Disability Rights California discussion on the topic of eligibility criteria is succinct and thorough.    DRC Information on Eligibility Criteria
