Schools may often refuse to make reasonable accommodations for children who need special education. If your child has special education needs, the school must accommodate for the child under the Americans with Disabilities Act. You have many rights in this situation such as the right to a manifestation hearing. You may also have the right to file a complaint against the school district. You should obtain an education attorney as soon as possible to educate you on your rights, and help you get the accommodations your child needs and deserves.
