Rights and Responsibilities: Being an Effective School Rights Advocate for Children with JA Webinar

School districts are required to provide a range of educational support services to help students with JA and other childhood rheumatic diseases make meaningful progress. Understanding your child’s rights and the school’s responsibilities will help you be a powerful advocate for your child.  Get the facts and advocacy tips from attorney-at-law Heidi Konkler-Goldsmith, a partner with McAndrews Law Offices, a firm that has been providing legal services in special education and disability law for more than 30 years.
 
You’ll learn about:

  • The laws that protect students with disabilities
  • The obligations of the school vs what’s at the school’s discretion
  • 504 and IEP plans and what’s best for your child
  • Practical approaches to conflict resolution and mediation
  • Your rights and how to protect your child in matters related to bullying
