Gabrielle C. Goham, a special education lawyer with Media-based Raffaele Puppio, recently presented at Lehigh University’s 2018 Special Education Law Symposium.
Goham participated in a session entitled “Restraints, Seclusion, and Abuse: Aversive Legal Consequences?” The discussion focused on the need for safe environments for students with disabilities, based upon sound, research-based techniques of instruction and behavioral intervention.
Having joined Raffaele Puppio as a partner and chair of the firm’s Special Education practice group in 2010, Goham currently represents school districts, charter schools, private schools, and intermediate units regarding special education matters.
In recognition of her many years of experience working with and representing Pennsylvania school systems, Goham has been repeatedly recognized as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters. She lectures frequently and is highly sought regarding special education issues across Pennsylvania.
Held annually, the Special Education Law Symposium at Lehigh University attracts registrants from across the country. The conference’s sessions are carefully chosen to share the perspectives of both parents and schools regarding the concepts and daily implementation of special education law.
