Posted on in Media Mentions

(New Britain, PA) - Partner Christina Stephanos is featured this month in an article highlighting a recent win for a Pennsylvania school district.

Published in The Special Educator, the article reviewed a recent decision made by an independent hearing officer, who found that parents’ unilateral therapeutic boarding school placement of a grade schooler with an other health impairment was inappropriate and wouldn’t support
the child’s gender identity. The full article can be accessed here.
