Successfully negotiated a nonpublic school placement and reimbursement of educationally-related expenses paid for by parents
The Law Office of Paul A. Hefley, Jr. had the great pleasure of representing a 12-year-old student who qualified for special education and related services under Specific Learning Disability (SLD) and Speech and Language Impairment (SLI). She had made little to no academic progress in school for the preceding three years. In attempt to keep her afloat academically, her parents had resorted to paying for private tutoring at their expense.
After filing a due process complaint with the California Office of Administrative Hearings, Paul began negotiating with the school district. Prior to due process hearing, Paul successfully obtained a settlement that included placement at a local nonpublic school that specializes in educating students with language differences and also reimbursement for the tutoring services parents had paid for out of pocket.
