“How to Successfully Address the Needs of Children with Learning Disabilities on A Systemic Basis”

Presenter: Matt Cohen, J.D., Matt Cohen and Associates, Chicago, Illinois 

As advocates for children with learning disabilities, we spend most of our time helping and supporting families on an individual basis. This webinar, presented by Matt Cohen Esq., an attorney who specializes in disability law, will give you the ability to address systemic issues related to IDEA and Section 504 in your state. Cohen shows us how to file complaints with your state department of education as well as with the Office of Civil Rights at the federal level. With these additional tools in our toolbox we can begin to make systemic changes which will benefit all children with learning disabilities. Cohen also identifies key areas of difficulty in obtaining timely, appropriate evaluation and services for children with or suspected of having LD. He addresses legal arguments that may support changes in district or state procedures relative to these issues, particularly in relation to the impact of RTI.
