Special Education Lawyers in Savannah, GA
With the passing of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), students with special needs became entitled to educational support services that enabled them to learn and reach their full potential for growth, like any non-disabled child.
