At Newman Aaronson Vanaman, we know how important it is to Santa Clarita parents of special needs children to feel that their concerns are being fully heard. Sometimes it is difficult for these parents to participate fully in the process of working with school and district administrators and creating appropriate Individualized Educational Plans without becoming overly invested both emotionally and financially. Parents instead want to feel as if they are the emotional caregivers to their children. We can help with the legal aspect of Santa Clarita special education representation and let our clients take a hands-off approach with their local school districts.
We can provide as little or as much representation as our clients wish. We often recommend a fully hands-on approach from our perspective to save our clients time, hassle and money over the long-term. Parents who prefer limited legal advice can come to us for that. On the other hand, parents of special needs children who want us to attend all IEP meetings in the Santa Clarita area can have that as well. Under California law, parents are allowed to bring legal representation with them to IEP meetings. We are able to deal with difficult school and district administrators and educators to create an environment that is best for the special needs child. Whether the child requires tutors, one-on-one teaching, occupational therapy, school counseling, speech therapy or some other care, we can ensure that his or her needs are met by the local school district as provided for by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act.
Experience with Legal Representation in Santa Clarita
While we serve clients in Santa Clarita, we also work with clients from the surrounding areas. We serve the entire Los Angeles area and work with all types of clients, including those who have traditionally been underserved. We never turn away clients based on their socioeconomic backgrounds but instead have attorneys who work specifically with clients of lower economic backgrounds. Our wish is that all special needs students receive the education and help they need to lead highly successful lives even into adulthood.
