- Through the efforts of Jacobson & John, Chester County parents recently settled a due process case against their son’s school district for thousands of dollars of compensatory education. Further, because the student was about to graduate, and given the particularly egregious nature of the academic and functional failures by the school district, we were able to successfully convince the district to allow the student to use the funds towards a college education – a usage rarely permitted.
- The parents of a child receiving Early Intervention services came to Jacobson & John when the Intermediate Unit recommended a highly restrictive placement for their daughter. For the student, social skills were her strength and social interaction was an activity that could motivate her to participate and learn. The placement recommended by the Intermediate Unit had little to no peer interaction. Jacobson & John was able to obtain tuition to fund a private placement of the parents’ choice, as well as related services at the location.
