When Should I Contact a Special Education Lawyer?

Every child deserves equal rights and access to education in a world that advocates for inclusivity. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, the system falls short, and you may find your child struggling to receive the support they need within the educational system.

Whether your child faces obstacles due to developmental delay, a learning ability, or other special needs, you must advocate for their rights. A special education lawyer can be an invaluable asset when it comes to advocating for the rights of your children.

Under New York special education law, you can seek legal representation to fight for your child’s special education rights. The Individuals with Disability Education Act, or IDEA, gives parents the right to be represented by a lawyer during meetings, evaluations, and due process hearings. You can contact an attorney if:

  • Your child consistently experiences unfair treatment or exclusion within their school environment.
  • You notice a persistent lack of appropriate accommodations or modifications outlined in your child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
  • You are met with resistance from the school administration, leaving you feeling helpless.

You Do Not Have to Navigate the School System Alone

When navigating the complex world of unique education systems, you do not have to face the challenges alone. Special education services involve a lot of legal jargon and complexities that may leave you feeling lost and overwhelmed.

Hiring an attorney is essential for understanding the complex legal policies that apply to your child’s specific circumstances. An attorney will provide the support and guidance needed to ensure your child receives the quality education they deserve.
