Children with special needs are the most vulnerable part of our society. And while there is no shortage of people willing to show their support for these children by commenting on social media or participating in an awareness walk, the thing that most significantly impacts these children is whether they have access to quality healthcare and education services. Parents are usually the only people who are willing to devote the time and resources to help the children obtain these services. Various Federal and State laws actually require appropriate healthcare and education services for children with special needs. Nevertheless, it can be extremely difficult to obtain this help due to the conflicting financial interests of so-called gatekeepers such as insurance companies, regional centers, and school districts. These gatekeepers sometimes refuse or limit services based on budget considerations, rather than based on what is appropriate for the child. And in some instances, the gatekeepers provide the needed services, but the quality is unacceptable. As the parent of a young child with special needs, Mr. Carroll is personally familiar with the barriers that many parents face when trying to obtain access to quality healthcare and education services. He is honored to offer a wide range of educational law services to children with special needs.
