Verona C.H.I.L.D. (Children Having Individual Learning Differences), the nonprofit that supports children who receive special education services from the Verona public schools will hold a free webinar on Tuesday, November 14, at 7 p.m. entitled “Basic Rights in Special Education Law.”

Special education law covers a broad continuum of students. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that every public school district identify and evaluate students suspected of having an educational disability and provide a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) to every eligible student until graduation or the year after the individual turns 21.

What rights does your child have? This presentation will highlight the basics of the following topics: differences between IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Child Find obligations, evaluations, initial IEPs, when out-of-district placements may be appropriate, transition planning for the older student, and handling disputes with the school.

The webinar will be presented by Arla D. Cahill, Esq. and Jacqueline Yarmo, Esq. of Mandelbaum Barrett PC, a law firm in Roseland. To get the Zoom link to attend, please email [email protected].
