Special Education

Posted on 02/29/2024at8:33 pm

Clint Adams and guest advocate Deana Cummings give an overview of Special Education in West Virginia schools. Eligible students have the right to specialized instruction at no cost to the guardians to accommodate their specific needs. Learn about the behavioral signs that your student may benefit from special education, such as a drastic change in grades, disinterest in attending school, and disciplinary issues. Hear about the process of going through your child’s school’s Student Assistance Team (SAT). Clint and Deana share advice on how to best advocate for your child’s education in often intimidating scenarios. Deana is an advocate with Legal Aid’s FAST Program.
