Help Parents Recover Expert Witness Fees and Level the Playing Field!

School districts can use tax dollars to employ and pay for psychologists and other technical experts.  

Few parents can afford the thousands of dollars needed to pay for expert testimony that is necessary to prevail in IDEA due process hearings and litigation. Parents have fewer resources and yet must bear a greater financial burden.

Mom on phoneThe IDEA Fairness Restoration Act, H.R. 2740, is necessary to allow parents to recover their expert witness fees.  It will restore Congress’ original intent.  This bipartisan bill, introduced by Congressman Chris Van Hollen (Maryland) and Pete Sessions (Texas), will help level the playing field and make the right to due process affordable for parents across America.

Find out more details about the IDEA Fairness Restoration Act, H.R. 2740 and make your call on Thursday, July 9!

Please ask friends, colleagues, clients, and family members to call too.  It will only take a few minutes.

Even if you signed the petition, it's important to make a call.  The petition is going to Congress' leadership.  But parents and advocates need to call their individual Representatives for support.
