Special Education Disagreements
Knowing when to file

When families and school districts disagree on placements or educational services for a student with disabilities, due process may be a last resort in resolving the dispute.
Please join us for an informational workshop on how to resolve disagreements through the IEP process, understanding your procedural safeguards, and how due process works.

Call (714) 558-4404 or use this link to register: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/75XTW5H
Parents of children with disabilities receive registration priority. Professionals will be placed on a waiting list and accommodated if space available.

The building is located at the cross streets of Fourth and Golden Circle and inside the Citizen’s Business Bank building.

“The Politics of Autism”
Lecture and Book Signing

Author of The Politics of Autism
In the first book devoted exclusively to the contentious politics of autism, noted political scientist and public policy expert John J. Pitney, Jr., explains how autism has evolved into a heated political issue disputed by scientists, educators, social workers, and families.
Organizational attempts to deal with autism have resulted in not a single “autism policy,” but a vast array of policies at the federal, state, and local levels, which often leave people with autism and their families frustrated and confused.
Pitney’s fascinating look offers a compass to navigate the current systems and hope for a path towards more regularized and effective policies for America’s autism community.
