Once a parent realizes that they need help pursuing claims under the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA), they are often surprised that they still have an active role. Parents are on the front line of communication with the school and decide whether they want to pursue private school tuition reimbursement, inclusion or compensatory education. Attorneys make sure that there is a written record reflecting legitimate, true facts supporting the relief the parent wants and that there is a legitimate claim that a child needs help. Attorneys also understand the nuances of case law and how your case might be affected by others that have already been litigated – or how your case might contain an issue that can ultimately help countless other people. Attorneys also know how to spot issues that non-attorneys might not recognize. Spotting and pursuing issues is important; fail to do either one and an issue can be waived. What if it’s an issue that could have delivered a decisive win?
