Special Education Rights in San Leandro, CA

Many parents we have spoke to were not cognizant of the laws and regulations that were drafted for special needs education. For example in 1975 the Individuals with Disabilities Education ACT (IDEA) was created. Initially called the Education for All Handicapped Children Act, the purpose of IDEA was to accord a free appropriate public education (FAPE) for children, and to describe the rights of the legal guardians to decide the child’s curriculum

Even with these protective measures, legal guardians have found it hard to assure the services and accommodations that their child needs for an appropriate education. Tsadik Law is here to guide and represent your family, and fight for you to receive the full provisions that your child is entitled to by law.
