A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a special education case involving his disabled son. The sailor’s son has severe autism and has an IEP in place with his current school. The sailor and his wife believe that the child’s IEP has been violated multiple times related to discipline resulting from the child’s behavior related to his disability. The couple has filed a complaint with the state and is attending mediation currently with the school, but the couple is very concerned that their child will not get the care he needs and is entitled to under the law. They seek assistance in this dispute with the school.
