I received a desperate note from a mother on Friday. Her child came to Georgia with a medical diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome and an effective IEP (Individualized Education Plan). Her new school in metro Atlanta is trying to change his diagnosis (not their job) and trying to eliminate her child’s services. She needs help immediately finding an education advocate or a education lawyer to help her fight for her son’s civil rights.
I called the mom to discuss what is going on. I told her I would make some phone calls to try to help her find someone but I would love for you guys to share names if you have used someone successfully. I am sure they are out there. Please let this mom know who you would recommend.
(I have lots to share about house hunting in New Jersey and interviewing schools, but let’s help this mom first! I feel terrible for her.)
