Launching Students Towards Success

Special Education/Section 504

Section 504-AdvocacySD

Special Education Advocacy

Let’s be honest: the special education system is not user-friendly, especially for parents and guardians. No one wants to file for due process. Whether you are seeking special education services, if your student already has an IEP or your student has a Section 504 plan needing to transition to an IEP, our Special Education Advocates will work collaboratively with you to assist you in understanding the process each step of the way.

Manifestation Determination/Suspension

If your student has been suspended, it can be a confusing and scary time. The school district may be telling you to attend a Manifestation Determination meeting without explaining what that means or why it’s happening. The advocates at AdvocacySD LLC are highly trained to walk you through the process to ensure your student’s rights are protected.

Section 504

If your student does not qualify for special education but needs accommodations due to a medically-documented disability, our Special Education Advocates will help to ensure your student receives a meaningful Section 504 plan. This general education function may help support your student’s launch to success.


Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

When you’ve been to multiple IEP meetings yet nothing seems resolved ADR is a great solution to achieve quick resolution to IEP and Section 504 challenges. ADR is a step often taken prior to a family filing for due process and typically allows a family to avoid due process entirely. Without the stress of attorneys or full IEP teams, ADR is a collaborative process, allowing for better conversation leading to better results. AdvocacySD LLC advocates specialize in the ADR process and are well-equipped to lead you to a successful outcome, including nonpublic school and residential program placements, as well as compensatory education.
