(Lancaster, PA)- Education Law attorneys Andrew Faust and Thomas Warner of Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams served as faculty members at the annual “Exceptional Children Conference” on October 27th at the Lancaster Marriott. The event was co-hosted by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and Pennsylvania Bar Association Legal Services for Exceptional Children Committee.

The conference, which typically draws several hundred attendees, featured presentations on current issues in special education and more than a dozen workshops covering a range of topics including accommodating disabled students in college, disagreements in special education, and the evolving impact of school choice in special education.

Faust participated with attorney Caryl Oberman in a “he said, she said” year in review of legislative and case law developments, a program they present annually. The session is so well-regarded, they were called the “dynamic duo” of “magical chemistry” in the official course materials.

Warner co-presented a session on “Discipline and Behavioral Intervention,” which explored the practical and procedural considerations that must be considered when faced with disciplining exceptional children.
