Caring Legal Help For Missouri’s Parents And Students

Advocating for your child’s education is not always easy, but it is one of your top priorities as a parent. When it comes to your child’s rights, there is nothing you wouldn’t do to help them.

At Semita Legalis, LLC, we make your child’s education our priority, too. David Breon, our founding attorney, represents parents and students throughout the Kansas City area to protect their educational rights. We collaborate with educators, professionals, school boards and other parties to find the best solutions for your child’s needs.

Some of the education-related legal matters we handle include:

  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
  • Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
  • Section 504
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
  • Special education law
  • Advocacy for children with disabilities
  • Disciplinary actions, suspensions and expulsions
  • Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)

We understand that navigating the public or private education systems while also caring for a child can feel impossible. Let our team break down the barriers that you face and get the system to work for you.

What Should I Know About IDEA And The ADA?

You might have heard of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which both became law in 1990. The ADA protects the rights of adults who have disabilities. The IDEA ensures that children who have disabilities have access to a free and nondiscriminatory public education. Unfortunately, far too many school systems fail to follow these laws. Having worked with many educational institutions, we understand how to get them to comply with the law and respect your rights.
