We Stand Up For Student Rights Under IDEA

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) has changed the way our society approaches education for children with physical and emotional disabilities. The law requires primary and secondary schools to provide disabled children with a free and appropriate education that is tailored to their needs.

At Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP, our lawyers protect the rights of families under IDEA. Our attorneys have decades of experience working with schools to ensure that children with disabilities receive the educational opportunities they need and deserve. We have offices in New York City, New Jersey and Denver.

We Stand Up for the Right to Appropriate Education

If you think your child’s educational needs are not being met under IDEA, contact our lawyers for assistance. The following are examples of the types of issues we handle:

  • Whether your child meets the definition of disability under IDEA
  • Development of an individualized education plan (IEP)
  • Special education and related services

Children with disabilities are entitled to special education and related services to meet their needs, as outlined by their individualized education plan. These services must be provided at no cost to the family.

Schools strive to place disabled children in mainstream settings, while providing supplemental services as needed. Examples of supplemental services include assistive devices, medical services, mobility services, transportation and psychological services.
