Tuition reimbursement: Under the Individuals with Disability Education Act (IDEA) and New York State Law, students are entitled to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). If a school district cannot provide an appropriate program, a parent can seek to enroll their child in an appropriate special education school and pursue a legal claim for tuition reimbursement or funding.
Disciplinary actions: Our firm is committed to finding amicable solutions to disciplinary issues your child may be facing. We can accompany you to disciplinary hearings and protect the interests and rights of your child.
Testing accommodations: Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, qualifying students with disabilities must be offered accommodations that meet their unique needs. Our firm can help ensure your child receives the accommodations or modifications he or she is entitled to under federal law.
