About the Author:

Randy Chapman came to The Legal Center in 1977 as a Volunteer in Service to America (VISTA). He was newly graduated from law school at the University of Texas at Austin. For his service, he received food stamps and a monthly stipend of $250. A year later he was hired as a staff attorney. He has been the Director of Legal Services since 1980.

He played a pivotal role in the development of disability law nationally. He helped break ground in implementing special education law, and his work in this arena is legendary. Parents report that simply invoking his name has moved recalcitrant school district personnel to provide appropriate services for their children.

His influence is reflected in state statute and policy. In the developmental disabilities area, he established Human Rights Committees in legislation to review medications, behavioral programs, and ensure investigation of abuse and neglect. He added the requirement that people with developmental disabilities be represented on the board of directors of community service organizations. He also drafted the due process language in the state statute and had significant input in the development of the Colorado Department of Education'’s complaint process for children in special education.

He has overseen legal representation to more than 10,000 people with disabilities in Colorado and made more than 500 presentations on disability law. He is also the author of numerous articles, two video scripts, and the co-author of a book on Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

He lives in Golden, Colorado, with his wife and two sons.

Review:

There is no doubt in my mind that my sons would not be achieving at the level they are now without your help. I remember how lost and discouraged I felt in my efforts to find help for my oldest son. He is now the greatest example of academic success that you could ever imagine! Thank you again for helping me to find and achieve quality help for my sons. --Cherish Aandahl, Parent

A lot of things that weren't being done now they re going back and doing them. He should have had a physical therapist to help with his motor skills I didn't know that and I just believed what they told me. Now, with the book, they know I m right, that it's the law, and not just me complaining. They can't blow me off any longer. --Sharon Edelen, Parent

Excellent book to have on hand at schools for parents and teachers to use. I work with students with disabilities and I learned a ton from this book. I will often refer to it as time goes on. The tidbits for parents are so beneficial. For example, letting a parent know what happens when they move in-state or to another state. This book has great information for parents and is a wonderful tool as it is easily readable and clear. --Colorado Independent Publishers Association Judges comments
