Q:

Victim of bullying searching for advocates or even other parents of disabled children who know something about special ed. law.

My son is a special ed. student with autism. My son was bullied at school to the point that he fought back with a verbal threat that caused him to be expelled indefinitely from his high school.  A group of students took what he said and drew it way out of proportion. He has been out of school for 55+ days. He will be losing credits and will have to repeat the 9th grade.  Although he is receiving F.A.P.E, it only covers three of his classes.  The school refuses to give him the rest of his classes.  

I feel he has been unfairly treated.  I am searching for advocates or even other parents of disabled children who know something about special ed. law to help get him back in school. My son deserves an education like anyone else, but I need some help getting the school to see this!
