If a child has a disability that effects their ability to conform to school or societal rules, and the school does not perform an adequate functional behavioral assessment (FBA), fails to develop an adquate behavior intervention plan (BIP) or fails to implement a well-designed BIP, there is a possibility that the child will face disciplinary action. This could be in front of a school tribunal, at a manifestation hearing, or in the juvenile justice system.
If your child is facing any of the above, legal representation is an essential part of ensuring that your child is not held accountable for actions that are a manifestation of his or her disability. Legal representation is also essential if your child is facing criminal charges in the juvenile justice system, as any finding of responsibility will have a lasting profound impact on your and your child's future. We can help you navigate these difficult times to achieve the desired end result for your child. Please contact us to find out more.
