IEP meetings are stressful. Please join us as we welcome seasoned attorneys Rosa K. Hirji and Bonnie Z. Yates to tell us how to prepare for IEP meetings and what to do if there is a disagreement with the district. Being informed evens the playing field and relieves the stress.

Rosa K. Hirji is an experienced attorney for educational, civil and disability rights of youth. She has assisted families with children who have special education needs since 2001, in schools and districts throughout Southern California, and on behalf of children with a range of disabilities. She represents youth and their families at IEP meetings, mediation, due process hearings and in state and federal court. Rosa brings to her special education cases direct experience as a former teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District; and understands the challenges students face in the classroom.

Bonnie Z. Yates is an experienced attorney in autism cases and a zealous advocate that provides counsel to clients through all stages of life, from early intervention, school based services and transition to adulthood. Ms. Yates’ “special education” began in 1994, when her four-year old son was diagnosed with autism. Since that time, Ms. Yates has represented hundreds of families in securing services for families in Northern and Southern California from both school districts and the regional centers.
