Roy Atwood is passionate about providing opportunities for people with special needs. As the father of a child with Down syndrome, he has first-hand experience dealing with the education of children with disabilities. He recognizes that the process can be overwhelming for parents as those familiar with the process speak in acronyms like "ARD," "IEP," and "FAPE." Yet it is critical that parents and school districts work together with the common goal of doing what is best for each individual child with special needs. Roy is prepared to assist at any step in the process, from creation of the Individualized Education Program, to placement in the least restrictive environment, due process hearings, and court appeals. Roy will assist with behind the scenes counseling or provide direct representation.
