EDUCATION ADVOCACY FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

3.5 CLE hours

 

About The Program:  

Georgia State University College of Law and the Health Law Partnership (“HeLP”), an interdisciplinary community collaboration of Georgia State University, ALAS, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to improve the health and well-being of low-income children and their families, are sponsoring the Education Advocacy for Children with Special Needs Project. The goal of the Education Advocacy for Children with Special Needs Project is to train lawyers interested in special education advocacy to take on these cases as part of their pro bono practice.  This practical training will present the nuts and bolts of special education law and provide a step-by-step reference guide to equip all attorneys with the information needed to advocate for students with special needs.  Ongoing support, including case consultation, will be provided by ALAS’ Disability Integration Project. Only attorneys who have attended the training will be referred cases.
