Parent's Bill of Rights
As a parent you have rights!
As a parent, you possess invaluable insights into your child's unique characteristics and needs. Entrusting your child to an educational setting entails the responsibility of ensuring that their developmental requirements are addressed appropriately. As outlined by the Department of Education, you have the entitlement to guarantee that your child's specific needs are met within that environment, regardless of whether they are typically developing or may have developmental delays or disabilities. Each child deserves an educational approach tailored to their individual strengths. A parent holds the prerogative to be a steadfast advocate for their child, including the right to request that mandated services be provided promptly.
Additionally, it is within your rights to contest an Individualized Education Program (IEP) mandate if it is found to be inaccurate, inappropriate, or insufficient in accommodating your child's needs.
