A key component of our law firm's education law practice is our representation of students and parents in special education matters. Attorneys at Stenger, Roberts, Davis & Diamond, offer experienced counsel and advocacy to children and teenagers in school-related disputes.
Some of our clients are disabled or require special accommodations. Other families contact us after students have been improperly labeled, classified, pigeonholed and marginalized by school officials without just cause. Our attorneys intervene and negotiate with school administrators on behalf of students and parents. We are prepared to take a case where it needs to go in pursuit of the correct outcome.
Students and parents rely on our knowledge and experience as we represent them in forums, including:
- Individualized education plan (IEP) hearings
- Committees on special education
- Boards of education
- The New York State Department of Education
- Courts of law
Our New York education law firm works to protect the rights of students. We advise and represent parents and disabled children before committees on special education, hearing officers and courts. We are committed to ensuring your right to a free and appropriate public education under the following statutes:
- Section 504 discrimination against handicapped students
- IDEA (Individuals With Disabilities Education Act)
In some cases, we have enabled families to obtain reimbursement for placement of students in private schools when school districts failed to properly educate them. Our clients may be grappling with challenges such as:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Learning disabilities
- Other types of disabilities
