Special Education Clinic

The Special Education Clinic will serve elementary and secondary students who have been identified as qualifying for special education services.  The students in the clinic will collaborate with various community partners to reach students and parents in communities that have historically been underserved in both special education and legal services. During this course, students will work with parents/students to provide legal training and ongoing support in the special education system so that the parents/students can become strong self-advocates. The course will cover training, analysis of individualized education plans, and, as appropriate, counseling on individual cases or group or class complaints. The Special Education Clinic is offered to students during Spring Semester for 3 credits.
