At Newman, Aaronson Vanaman, we understand the concerns that parents have who are new to the world of special education. They may not know how to get their children into special education classes, what to do if they feel that their children are struggling in school or how to react when the school district will not listen to their concerns. Many times, a consultation with one of our helpful attorneys can help solve many of these problems. Other times, we will need to come alongside the family and fight for the rights of the special education child at the school district, regional or state level.
