What are Due Process and Fair Hearings?
When a disagreement develops between parents and school districts regarding the education of a student with a disability, a neutral third party is often needed to help resolve the disagreement.

Join us for a presentation by an Administrative Law Judge regarding how to access rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act on Tuesday, February 13 in Sacramento.  The presentation covers:
  • An overview of Office of Administrative Hearings
  • Basic due process rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Act
  • How to access Office of Administrative Hearing's services
  • How to present your case at mediation and at a hearing.

Types of Assessments
Children who have disabilities and special health care needs are often subject to several types of assessments meant to better identify their area(s) of need. In an ongoing series, WarmLine will share different assessments, what they look for and how that information is used to support the child.  This month: A look at in-depth testing which can identify areas where your child may need targeted instruction and help, and can help determine whether they qualify for special education services.
