Lawyer advocates for special needs children
For families of children with special needs, it’s easy to get lost in bureaucratic maze of jargon and acronyms. “It’s like a foreign language,’’ said Beth Ross, a special needs attorney who helps parents navigate the complex special education process. Ross helps parents of special needs students deal with school suspensions; disagreements over a diagnoses; or transferring children to public from private schools. She often juggles 15 or more cases at a time.
