Mary Ann Carroll, an attorney at BRCSM, worked with the President of ARIASE (Association of RI Administrators of Special Ed) to organize a two-day, state-wide conference in January of 2016. The conference was widely attended by special educators, superintendents and administrators from around the State. ARIASE’s mission is to support administrators in special education to improve outcomes for students. It was a great two days with a lively audience, smart questions and positive feedback.
Mary Ann Carroll and firm partner Andrew Henneous led many of the presentations and were the featured speakers. Aubrey Lombardo, a firm associate, gave a presentation on Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. BRCSM attorneys also covered topics including special ed in private and parochial schools, what to expect in due process, and using service animals.
BRCSM attorneys’ presentations included the latest national legal trends gleaned from their recent trip to a national conference for special education attorneys held in Austin, Texas.
