Special Education Outreach Project

The Disability Law Center received a grant from the Shapiro Family Foundation to host 6 workshops in low income communities facing lingusitic and cultural barriers to discuss special education law, including transition issues. These 6 trainings are held in cities around the Greater Boston area and feature both training information and one-to-one legal clinics. The clinics are an opportunity for parents of children with special education needs to meet with an attorney from the Disability Law Center. The attorney will answer some basic questions from the parent and determine if more time and full representation is necessary. These trainings are intented to reach out to individuals who speak English as a second language. This project also includes other work, including creating videos in ASL and other languages for our online Transition Manual, and updating our Transition Manual.
