Back to School Resource Highlights

The Minnesota Disability Law Center is Minnesota’s Protection and Advocacy System for people with disabilities. They have created this information sheet about common issues and how to address them.

In making decisions about when and how to return to the classroom and other community locations, it is critical that families work closely with their child's physicians. This list of questions is a good starting place for those conversations.
