We advocate for children to receive the necessary accommodations, services, and supports mandated by federal and state law, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEIA).
The Education Team provides individual case advocacy for students with disabilities, including representation at Individual Education Plan (IEP) meetings, mediations, and/or administrative hearings when needed.
We also provide systemic or public policy advocacy, community education, and outreach, technical assistance to other service providers, information, and referrals to individuals, self-advocacy support, and other services.
In addition, the Education Team works closely with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) on administrative rule-making and other policies pertaining to the education of children with disabilities.
