The Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA) is a nonprofit group that provides peer support to attorneys, advocates, and parents, in protecting and enforcing rights of children with disabilities and their families. COPAA is premised on the belief that every child has a right to a free appropriate public education and an equal opportunity to have his or her unique needs met. States, school districts, and schools have obligations under both state and federal law to ensure that each child with special needs receives an individualized education that prepares them for work, college, and participation in the community.
COPAA works to increase the quantity and quality of advocate and attorney representation of families with children with special needs. To this end, COPAA offers bogs where its members can discuss problems children are enduring during the school day, training in the form of webinars, and a yearly conference as well. Certain members of the group are national experts in disability law who work at the national and state level to reform and develop laws to support people with special needs.
