In the discussion about special needs, Los Angeles Children with Physical Disabilities may get left behind. Some educators believe that only those with physical difficulties require the unique helps in the public school system that special needs children are required by law to receive. However, children with physical disabilities often qualify for these adjustments if their disabilities significantly hamper the learning process. Their disabilities may also require them to uses assistive devices that may raise other problems in the school setting, such as difficulty getting around the grounds, problems using the restrooms and hindrances when going on field trips.
Providing Legal Representation to Los Angeles Children with Physical Disabilities
According to federal law, all children deemed to have special needs, which could include those with physical disabilities, are required to have a free appropriate public education. However, because the term “appropriate” is often left up for discussion in the Los Angeles school district, some children are left behind and are ill prepared to head off to college or to a job after high school graduation. While these children may receive some special help, school districts do not have any measurable way to determine how special education students are doing in school. Some of these children would certainly do much better if they received additional help, such as one-on-one tutoring, technological assistance, and combined classroom settings as much as possible.
