When considering legal issues for your special needs child, it is strongly recommended that you contact
an attorney that specializes in children with disabilities. There are many attorneys in Colorado that offer
free to low-cost legal assistance to persons with disabilities. Here are a few resources that may help you
get started with these processes:
