Liability Issues with the Management of Special Needs Students

Listen and Watch the Webinar HERE

On Thursday, May 2, 2013, at 2 p.m. ET, The TASA Group, Inc., in conjunction with school safety experts Andy Demidont and Dale Yeager, presented a free, one hour, interactive webinar, Liability Issues with the Management of Special Needs Students, for all legal professionals and school administrators.

The webinar covered three key issues related to safety and security problems with special needs students in elementary, middle, and high schools:

  • Lack of Accurate Understanding of Federal Law Regarding Special Education
  • Safety Issues: A Management Issue
  • Poor Management of Students: The Real Problem


“No child falls through the cracks. They are dropped through or shoved through by lazy, emotionally immature adults and unethical professionals”

After the Columbine shootings I made this statement during an interview on national television. The reporter asked if I really believed that statement and I replied, “absolutely!”

But you may ask what this statement has to do with the issue of truancy? Simple, truant children – who are routinely late or absent – come from dysfunctional homes. Those homes in my experience are led by caregivers who are more concerned about their own pleasures and convenience than the welfare of their children. Some may say that this is an unkind assessment. My response to them is simple, visit these homes and you will see that this is not an aberration.
