Dealing with the school system can be stressful, especially when fighting to ensure that the school is adequately providing your child access to free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Our special education law firm completes a comprehensive review of your child’s educational records in order to best understand your child’s needs. In doing so, we work collaboratively and consult with recognized professionals in the field so that we can advocate for the support and services your child requires to promote learning and improve their overall school experience.
Know Your Disability Rights in CT
Our special education attorneys will advocate for your child during Planning and Placement Team meetings (i.e., PPT, IEP meetings), Mediation Sessions, Due Process Proceedings, Section 504 Meetings, disciplinary hearings, and Manifestation Determinations. A wide range of disabilities can be identified in children under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA): learning disabilities, autism, intellectual impairment, speech, and language disability, other health impairment, children aged 3-9 experiencing developmental delay, ADD and ADHD, emotional disturbance, deaf-blindness, hearing impairment, orthopedic impairment, traumatic brain injury, and visual impairment).
Advocates For Your Child’s Education
Under IDEA, children with special needs must receive a free and appropriate public education. Additionally, if your child does not yet have an Individualized Education Program (IEP), but you believe that he or she needs one, we will review the education records, determine if there is a Child Find issue, and advocate for your child’s best interests. Let our special education attorneys help you be your child’s best advocate.
