New York City Special Education Attorneys
If you live in New York City, you may face very specific challenges in advocating for your child’s special education needs. Because of the number of students served in the New York City special education system, the process for obtaining appropriate special education services and filing for an impartial hearing may be different than in other parts of New York State.
New York City’s special education structure, including the staff and administrative hierarchy, may be unfamiliar to parents who have dealt with school systems elsewhere in the state. Procedures and policies differ, too, including the manner of dealing with due process requests. Even the terminology used in New York City special education documents may be unlike that found across the state.
NY City Special Education Lawyers
New York City has established a specific “District 75” for children who cannot be served in community schools. Parents often seek reimbursement for private school tuition when the New York City public schools are unable to provide appropriate special education services. These types of cases may be referred to as “Carter” or “Connors” cases and should be handled by attorneys familiar with the specific requirements.
