New Mission

New Mission

My mission is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues.

I would like to visit and observe different types of schools that have proven records of success, wherever those schools may be. I would like to meet with school directors and administrators, government officials, leaders in the business world, and others who are responsible for implementing education systems or otherwise connected to education to learn more about how education is being addressed in their communities.

If you know of any remarkable schools in other parts of the world (especially special needs schools), please let me know about them. If you know of any education experts who are engaged in remarkable work in this field, please introduce me to them.

Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas regarding the above. Read more about my mission here.

The Impact Of The Pandemic On Special Needs Children

I wanted to share a recent article from the New York Times about the impact the pandemic is having on special needs children.  Some of the points mentioned in the article are concerns that our clients have expressed recently to our firm.  

For example, this week I spoke with a client about her child's poor immune system and the heightened risk of complications from COVID-19 if he were to return to school.  A few days prior to that I spoke with a client whose child has been engaging in self-injurious behaviors due to frustration from remote learning.  

Our hearts go out to families who are grappling with these issues.  We are continuing to guide our clients about options they could be exploring to address their children's needs during this time of crisis and to lessen the harmful effects of the pandemic on their children's development.  

If you would like to discuss your particular circumstances and explore what you could or should be doing from a legal standpoint please feel free to contact our office for further guidance.
