A2Z Educational Advocates Special Education Law Firm Services

A2Z Educational Advocates is a group of attorneys and advocates working to represent parents of special needs kids at every level of the process.

We assist parents with IEPs, compliance complaints, navigating the maze of the school districts, Due Process hearings, and beyond. We come at this with a unique approach, working on every case as a team, with the parents a vital and active part of that team.

Our goal is not only to provide parents with representation, but also to empower the parents, and ultimately the child, to become better advocates themselves.

A2Z Educational Advocates seeks to help parents obtain a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for their children. Your child may be protected under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Rehabilitation Act (§504), the Tech Act, or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Using a multidisciplinary team approach, A2Z can help facilitate your child receiving special education services from your local district through:

• Initial referrals
• Letters to School Districts
• Referrals for evaluation and services
• Advocacy at IEP meetings
• Advocacy with Regional Centers
• Reimbursement requests
• Advocacy at Expulsion Hearings and Manifestation Determinations
Record requests
Compliance Complaints when the district fails to provide services
• OCR Complaints when the district violates your child’s civil rights
• Parent Training Programs
Diagnostic referrals
• Requesting and advocating at Mediations
• Requesting and providing legal representation at Due Process Hearings (Office of Administrative Hearings)
• Filing and providing legal representation for Appeals
