Community Alliance for Special Education (CASE)

The Community Alliance for Special Education (CASE) is a San Francisco based non-profit formed to protect the lawful educational rights of children with disabilities by fostering the fair and just implementation of IDEA and state special education law.

CASE provides these basic services:

  • Technical assistance consultations to families and professionals on special education rights, responsibilities and services regarding specific special education students or issues;
  • Direct representation at Individual Education Program (IEP) meetings, due process mediations, and administrative hearings if necessary on behalf of students with disabilities and their parents; and,
  • Training on special education rights and services to parents so they to can better advocate for appropriate special education programs and services on behalf of children with disabilities.

CASE supports families by going with them to IEP meetings as a primary service.
