Learning Rights Law Center Accepting TIGER Applications for 2019

The Learning Rights Law Center created the Training Individuals for Grassroots Education Reform (TIGER) Program to help parents:

  • learn their rights so that they may better advocate for their children; and
  • help themselves through a "hands-on" teaching approach.

The TIGER program is not a professional advocacy program or a program that trains parents to help other parents; it is a special education advocacy training for low income/modest income parents and guardians of students with disabilities designed for parents to help themselves by understanding special education and special education law.

In order to participate in the program, you must:

  • Be a parent/caregiver of a child with special needs
  • Fall within the Learning Rights Law Center income guidelines

Parents meet once a month for 11 months and are taught about the special education legal system by advocates, attorneys and other professionals.

Learning Rights Law Center is now accepting applications for the TIGER Program 2019. All submissions are due no later than November 9, 2018.
