Thanks to my fellow attorney colleagues who practice with special needs children in K-12, I was introduced to the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates. This month I was accepted as a member. It is my intention to share my knowledge of seeking accommodations for college and graduate students.
"COPAA is a community that works to increase the quality and quantity of advocate and attorney representation; and, through that vehicle,
Achieve Better Outcomes for the Families We Serve
We believe the key to accessing individualized, effective educational programs is assuring that students with disabilities and their parents are equal members of the educational team." (from COPAA's website home page)
