Accessing supports at school is not always easy.
A professional who understands the process can help.
Attorney Wendy Pizer supports families in Arlington and Northern Virginia as they navigate the complex world of special education. When a student struggles at school, it can be difficult for parents to know what to do. As an experienced attorney with a focus in special education law, Wendy works with families to understand the student’s unique strengths and needs, identify solutions and advocate for appropriate services and accommodations.
Supports for students with disabilities may include:
Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
IEPs provide specially designed instruction to meet each student’s unique educational needs. Wendy assists families when challenges arise in eligibility determinations, plan development or compliance.
Gifted Services for Twice Exceptional Learners (2E)
Students can be eligible for both special education and gifted services at the same time. On top of addressing students’ disability-related needs, Wendy helps families qualify students for gifted services when appropriate.
Section 504 Plans
504 plans provide accommodations to enable students to access the general education curriculum and school activities. Wendy assists families when challenges arise in eligibility determinations, plan development or compliance.
Individual Health Care Plans
Students with health conditions require specific written plans to detail how the condition should be managed at school. Wendy has experience with a wide range of health conditions and can help families develop appropriate plans.
American with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accommodations
Accommodations remove barriers to learning, communication or a student’s environment. Wendy advocates for accommodations to enable students to fully access their education.
Tiered System of Support
All students, whether in general or special education, should receive support through a high-quality tiered instructional framework when needed. Wendy helps families access support for students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral needs.
