The Special Education Legal Clinic offers parents and guardians an opportunity to meet with a special education advocate or attorney in an open and welcoming environment to ask questions and discuss specific challenges related to education. Clinic staff members and volunteers will help guide parents and guardians through the special education process and provide resources to request and secure special education services, including educational recovery services and/or extended learning needed because of the 2020-21 pandemic.
The Clinic includes a group workshop followed by individual guidance sessions (both explained in detail below). Parents and guardians may participate in-person or virtually.
The Clinic is a public-private collaboration between Disability Rights Ohio, the Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children With Disabilities, and Albeit Weiker, LLP. The Clinic is staffed by volunteer attorneys, advocates, law students, and interns.
The Clinic is free and is offered in-person or online.
