I like your new postings - especially the college kid who was inspired by a story he saw on ESPN.

Thank you for this site! I attended a presentation of your's last year in Knoxville (I'm 99% certain that was you, with Prof. Rivkin). But it was wonderful and helped with my special-ed law project so much.

Are you related to another Charles Fox, who used to travel to NYC in the early eighties I would like to know his whereabouts .

Response: no not me.

You are, BY FAR, the best in the biz, Charlie, and I can't thank you enough for how you've helped our family! Take care!

Thank you for the valuable information on this site.

I am a parent in GA now at the receiving end of a defamation lawsuit brought by a school principal with many many allegations against me. I do have an attorney who is representing me and defending every allegation and claim made in this lawsuit against me.

By the way.... me and several folks have successfully gotten Seclusion Rooms REMOVED FROM FORSYTH COUNTY SCHOOLS!!

Thank you so much for offering an outlet for parents facing these types of issues.

I notice the 2/9/08 comment from a parent in GA discussing the seclusion rooms in Forsyth County. My son is in a GA school and was repeatedly closed into a side room as a means of punishment. But, like many parents, I am scared of the district and unwilling to speak out. At least this site gives some opportunity.

I was just told my by insurance company that my husband's company doesn't have to comply with state mandated autism coverage because they are a self-funded group. Have you heard of this?

Dear Mr. Fox:
Thank you for the work you do. I'm certain you're a Godsend to many parents of "special" children.
Very briefly:
My son is 36 years old. He's in federal prison for seven years, which is more than often the outcome when a child is diagnosed with ADHD, LD, and bipolar.
Mike was in special education classes from the 1st grade. His Dad and I did everything we knew to do to help him, including private tutors and working with him ourselves (like most parents in our situation).
Mike did graduate from high school. His overall average was in the low 70's. A 70 is required to graduate here. He didn't have the low average because he was lazy. The average was the best he could accomplish.
My question is, why doesn't the legal system take into consideration if a person has learning disabilities and/or mental illness? This about drives me nuts. There is quite a bit of difference between a person with learning disabilities and who is mentally ill than the average person. They're also much much easier to be influenced to break the law by others.

Mr. Fox, I am a parent of an exceptional child who attends Georgia's public school. Georgia has an undeniable reputation when it come to educating special needs students and presently number 48 among the worst education institutions in America. The process for advocating for an adequate education for your child is intimidating for parents and for most attorneys when they're weighted by decisions whether to pursue a case or remain content with fear of losing favor with the status quo. Time after time, I've experienced this when the attorney representing the school district calls the representing law firm I have chose and urged the attorney to step away from our case out of fear they would lose their defense for their client (school district). How does one find a way to bring an end to this type unethical law practice?
