Costello & Mains founding partner Kevin M. Costello served as a panelist in a presentation on "Autism and the Law" sponsored by the Camden County Bar Association. The seminar took place on April 24th in Tavistock, New Jersey.
"I have both a professional and a personal stake in this particular issue as it affects education and civil rights," Kevin says, "and it's a pleasure to speak to educational and legal professionals on the intersection between this pervasive and hard to diagnose and treat condition on the one hand, and education and civil rights, on the other."
Kevin served as a co-panelist with a Child Psychologist and education rights attorneys
. The panel addressed how autism affects civil rights for students, workers and criminal defendants. Kevin's particular area of concentration was discussing the prevention of school bullying and school harassment
based upon Autism and Asperger's Syndrome, and in making sure that discrimination relief is available when schools do not follow IEPs and 504s.
