If you have a child with special needs, trying to figure out how they learn best and figure out how they can fit into the school system is a full-time job that can be complicated, disheartening, and sometimes downright frustrating. Most current public education wasn’t designed for kids with disabilities; this means that you may be dealing with a school system that doesn’t understand your child’s unique needs, and worst of all, isn’t trying to.

It’s disappointing and sad to see the potential your child has and also see how they are not being given the opportunities they need to thrive! You as their parent need to be their voice, but sometimes you aren’t heard. When that happens, our experienced New York special education lawyers can stand up for your child’s legal rights! We have a high success rate. Call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation and learn more about your options.

How We Can Help

We can work with school districts to get the services your child needs. Some parents are reluctant to hire or even consult with a lawyer because they think it will make their child be seen differently or further exacerbate the problem, but the reality is that retaining legal counsel demonstrates that you are serious about your child’s education, and it does not have to be confrontations. The Law Offices of Adam Dayan has a reputation for quickly resolving disputes in a tactful, respectful style when possible; we aim to earn you respect, as well as results!

We can provide legal advice and advocacy in the following areas:

  • Individualized Education Service Plans (IESPs)
  • Independent Educational Evaluations (IEEs)
  • Speech therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Transportation
  • Paraprofessionals/Aides
  • Behavioral Intervention Plans
  • School choice
  • Referrals
  • Public testing and evaluation
  • Meetings with the Committee on Special Education (CSE)
  • Meetings with the Preschool Committee on Special Education (CPSE)
  • Individualized Education Programs (IEPs)
  • Deferrals to the Central Based Support Team (CBST)
  • “Nickerson” letters
  • Extended School Year services
  • Functional Behavior Assessments
  • Manifestation Determination Reviews
  • And more!

How Legal Representation Can Make A Difference In Your Child’s Life

School districts in New York often think in terms of resources rather than in terms of the individual needs of children. That’s understandable, but not justifiable; it is well-established that schools have a legal obligation to prioritize the latter! If your child has a disability that interferes with their educational progress, he or she may be entitled to special education rights. We can help you determine what those rights are and then stand up for them, depending on the situation at hand. Our special education lawyers can:

  • Prepare for IEP meetings
  • Draft parts of the IEP and suggest what will be most effective
  • Attend IEP meetings
  • Secure your child’s school file
  • Request evaluations
  • Reviewing evaluations
  • Helping you informally or formally resolve disputes
  • Prepare complaints
  • And represent you in court, if necessary!

Our guidance will save you significant amounts of time, money, and stress. If you work full time, or are a single parent, having us handle the paperwork knowing that we are looking out for your child can take a weight off your shoulders. As their parent, you are a wonderful advocate for them, but our knowledge can give you more confidence in your ability to negotiate successfully!
