Course Description

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act require public schools to provide free and appropriate educational services to special needs children. Many public schools honor their obligations under these laws. Others, often because of funding issues, shortchange their most vulnerable students.

This program, taught by David G.C. Arnold, Of Counsel to Robson & Robson, P.C., will familiarize the general litigator with the variety of services that are available for the special needs student, and give them the confidence to represent special needs school children in obtaining these services.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Review what the IDEA and Section 504 require of public schools
  2. Discuss the process for obtaining services for the special needs child
  3. Provide practice pointers for the general litigator representing a special needs child for the first time
