The laws and regulations regarding the services a school district is required to provide for a student with special needs is complex and it can feel overwhelming to parents. Generally, schools must identify students with special needs, provide evaluations, and tailor services to meet the student’s needs. But what if the parents disagree with the evaluations and/or services? What rights do you and your child have in this process?
We have extensive experience in navigating the special education system with school districts across New Mexico. We can help parents understand the evaluation process, help parents with Individualized Education Program (“IEP”) meetings for their child, and help parents navigate the complaint and fair hearing process, if necessary. No need for parents to do this alone. The attorneys at Pregenzer, Baysinger, Wideman & Sale can help parents ensure that their child receives the most possible from their public school education.
