Guiding your children through the public education system in Connecticut can be challenging, but if they have special needs, it can be an overwhelming battle. Although the school district has an obligation to identify such students and provide them with a free appropriate public education (FAPE), it is often left to the parent to bring the student’s needs to the school and then to engage in the protracted process of obtaining the appropriate special education support., while the child’s academic and behavioral performance spirals downward. During this time, the stress and emotional burden on the parent, who rarely has the requisite legal knowledge and background to fight for their child, can lead to confusion and frustration.
