We have a special education attorney representing my son and are in the process of filing so I can't disclose any details of our case but I wanted to hear from others who have been through it. If you can please share your experiences.
I assumed people here would know what I was talking about and asking for their experiences with it. Basically I wanted to know if anyone has filed due process, what was the experience like, how did things get resolved.
The IDEA includes rules of procedure for resolving disputes between parents and schools. These rules include mediation, due process hearings, and appeals to state or federal court. (Wrightslaw: Special Education Law, page 107-115)
A due process hearing is usually a formal, contested, adversarial trial. Special education cases are similar to medical malpractice cases, with battles of expert witnesses, and the emotions of bitterly contested divorce cases with child custody and equitable distribution issues
