Andrew will also discuss the legal remedies available to families if they disagree with the programming for their child. This presentation will be informative for families, educators, and professionals alike.

Kline School of Law. He built up a working knowledge of the special education legal framework and the practices of the Office of Administrative Law, while clerking in the Education Section of the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office.
