The Smith Family

The Smith family's son, diagnosed with ADHD, was facing unfair disciplinary actions. Click to learn how we ensured the school provided appropriate behavioral supports, leading to significant improvements.

Challenge:

The Smith family’s son, who has ADHD, was facing frequent disciplinary actions that were not in line with his IEP accommodations. These actions were negatively impacting his education and self-esteem.

Our Solution:

We stepped in as the Smith family's special education lawyers, reviewing all disciplinary records and the existing IEP. We identified several procedural violations and presented those during the Manifestation Determination Review (MDR).

Outcome:

The MDR revealed that the disciplinary actions were indeed related to the child’s disability. The school was required to revise their disciplinary approach and provide additional behavioral supports. The Smith family’s son is now receiving the appropriate accommodations and has shown marked improvement in both behavior and academic performance.
