Education Law Services, Committee on Special Education - Garden City, N.Y.
Parents of special education students often find that school districts fail to provide the services their children require. Our goal is to help special education children secure their right to a free appropriate public education and to reach their potential in school.
We represent special education students at Committee on Special Education (CSE) hearings, which school districts convene annually to determine the needs of each classified student. If a child is not granted appropriate accommodations for their disability at the CSE level, we represent them during the ensuing mandated administrative process. We obtain impartial hearings, assess the child's needs and explore with the parent the services the school district may be required to provide.
The attorneys who founded this practice group are themselves parents of special needs children, affording our clients a uniquely empathetic and personal perspective. We know firsthand the emotional turmoil created when a school district fails to address special education needs. We analyze each situation and implement effective and creative solutions, working hand-in-hand with parents throughout the process.
Through our involvement in several Long Island-based special education groups as well as organizations such as the National Center for Disabilities, we offer clients an unparalleled network of resources in addition to our substantial legal muscle.Service Areas:
