Special Education

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Special Education Law

Due to the complexity of the laws governing special education, many parents feel confused about how to obtain appropriate services and navigate the school and legal systems or are frustrated by their school district's lack of responsiveness to their child's needs.  Ensuring your child receives the services and accommodations he or she is entitled to under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) or Section 504 can be a difficult, time-consuming, and an extremely frustrating experience.  

Ryan will help you navigate IDEA and Section 504 every step of the way. We help parents in the identification process by finding appropriate evaluators; explaining the meaning and implication of reports; reviewing all documentation relevant to the child; referring parent to appropriate providers, schools and programs; and settling or litigating for educational and tutoring funding or reimbursement. We also help students with disabilities facing student disciplinary proceedings

Ryan offers a free phone screening to assess whether your child is receiving the services and accommodations that he or she needs in school. We represent children of all ages, as well as young adults and serve students with a wide variety of disabilities.
