Education attorney Mark B. Martin will help you understand what you need to know and what the school system’s obligations are to meet your child’s educational needs under the IDEA and Section 504. Parents will take home strategies to become effective advocates for their child. The advocacy not only happens in IEP meetings but throughout the school year. Among the information he will share, will be ways to effectively document communications, analyze information from evaluations, and measure educational progress.
