Special Education Advocacy

Special Education Advocacy program provides direct representation to help families enforce their right to directly communicate violations of the education law to key school district administrators, or state and federal government agencies.


By taking unresolved conflicts out of the individual schools and into administrative bodies charged with ensuring compliance with the law (e.g. the California Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights, and Office of Administrative Hearings Special Education Division), students get another chance to obtain education access before having to resort to litigation. 


In 2018, Learning Rights settled 92 Administrative Complaints. Our advocacy efforts resulted in more than $4.7 million worth of free services (e.g. speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, counseling) for students who had been wrongfully denied this support.
