Welcome to Skinner Law – Indiana Special Education Law
The Skinner Law legal team focuses its practice on special education and school law. They provide legal assistance to parents and their children with special needs.
Schools are required by law to provide children with disabilities a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment (LRE). When a school fails to honor these basic requirements, not only is the child harmed, but society is harmed as well. Therefore, it is not unreasonable for parents and the community to expect or demand absolute transparency and accountability in the educational progress, discipline, safety, and care of our children.
Our unique perspective has proven valuable in the representation of special education students throughout the State of Indiana.
