Course Description

Attorneys appointed for special needs children have access to due process costs on behalf of their child clients. These services can include a wide range of experts, investigators, and interpreters. 
Many attorneys do not use these services despite their ability to significantly elevate the quality and effectiveness of advocacy on behalf of the child. 
This presentation will cover the procedure for obtaining due process services. It will also cover ethical considerations and effective strategies for their use in common scenarios, such as obtaining consulting evaluations on a client, using investigators and forensic experts to monitor agency or parental compliance with court orders, and using social work experts to assist in creation of advocacy strategy. 
The goal of this presentation is to help attorneys for children use due process services to create a team of advocates on behalf of the child.
