This post was written by a client (and is shared with permission). Her son, 4, has autism. His rights were repeatedly violated by his school district. After I supported Parents in initiating due process (a “Request for Hearing” was filed with the Bureau of Special Education Appeals), he now attends a full day ABA-based integrated preschool and has a comprehensive home program.
I applaud all of you for “Lighting it Up Blue” today. Thought you might enjoy this one mom’s thoughts about her son’s journey, advocacy, and thinking about the future.
