Special Education Representation from a Parent’s Perspective [01:31:25]

The transactional nature of the attorney-client relationship can run into pitfalls when an attorney represents a seasoned parent or a parent who is limited from full access to their rights due to cultural or linguistic constraints. Additionally, parent participation in the IEP is considered a cornerstone of special education, yet the process remains inaccessible to many families, particularly families of students of color. This panel will look at the attorney-client relationship vs. the advocate-client relationship and parent perspectives/expectations in each. It will also offer information, tips, and strategies related to parent organizing efforts; improving representation of families; and working toward a more inclusive, family-centered model of special education.
