More Info

SpELL believes that all children, including those with special needs, deserve the best possible education.  

All too often, children with special needs are denied the free, appropriate public education to which they are entitled.  When this happens, their families are faced with few options:  either they must attempt to navigate the confusing and often daunting area of special education law on their own, or they are forced to spend their already overtaxed resources to hire a special education attorney.

SpELL will provide a better alternative.  In the vast majority of instances, parents of special ed kids don't need to hire a lawyer, but they do need help to understand their rights and how to enforce them. SpELL offers that help, regardless of income level, through a free legal hotline for all special education law questions.  In addition, parents will be able to contact SpELL by phone or through email, as often as they need to, without any limitation.

SpELL needs funding to establish and promote the SpELL hotline and website, which will allow parents of special ed kids to contact an experienced special education attorney whenever they need support.
