Know Your Rights!

Important to teach children their Statement of Rights and their right to remain silent, even when questioned at school!  Teach them to remain silent and ask for their mom or dad to be present before talking with school personnel.  See the website below.  Keep in mind, this is for all children, not just children with disabilities.............
It's also important to know what children can and cannot be suspended or expelled for in public school.  See below!
