Understanding IEP Violations: How The Law Office of Sean M. Hobson Can Help

If you have a child with a learning disability or other condition that impacts their education, your child may be eligible for special education and related services.  If you child has been found eligible for special education and related services, the Individualized Education Program, or IEP, is a critical document for California children with special needs. It outlines the specific educational and support services specifically tailored to the specific needs of the particular child to ensure they can thrive in school.

To qualify for an IEP, a child must have a recognized disability that impacts their learning and requires special education services to complete their education. This is not a one-size-fits-all plan; it’s customized to meet each child’s unique needs. Getting approved for an IEP and developing one tailored to your child can be a complex process. The Law Office of Sean M. Hobson will review and analyze your student’s current IEP and recent assessments to determine whether the IEP was not appropriately designed.

Components Of An Effective IEP

A well-crafted IEP includes goals for the student, services the school will provide, and how progress will be measured. It is developed by  the IEP Team that knows the child best, which includes educators, parents and specialists. Importantly, it ensures the child receives an appropriate education tailored just for them. Attorney Sean Hobson can help parents who have a child with an IEP that is not appropriately designed, or an IEP that is not being implemented.
