We Focus Exclusively on Special Education Law

Special education law refers to the state and federal laws that govern teaching students with special needs.  These needs can be learning or physical disabilities, behavioral problems, talents, or academic aptitude that cannot be satisfied in a regular classroom.

Federal law—specifically the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA)—guarantees a free public education to children who suffer from these learning impediments:

  • Reading difficulties
  • Comprehension difficulties
  • Behavioral issues
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Hearing impairment
  • Autism/Asperger’s syndrome
  • Emotional disorders
  • Speech and language delays
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Visual impairment
  • Developmental delays
  • Other health issues

 Dedicated to representing clients with special education law issues

Our focus is on helping children get the education to which they are entitled and assisting your family throughout this process.

Affordable legal services and fees

There is no charge for an initial consultation.  For legal representation, we generally expect a financial commitment from our clients for fees.

Parents who prevail in the state administrative process may be entitled to have their reasonable legal fees paid by the school district.  This enables us to provide legal representation for a reduced charge or no-charge basis—depending on the merits of the case and the client’s ability to pay for legal services.

Contact us for representation

We provide legal advice and representation to parents of children with special needs.  This includes representation in the state and local administrative processes, i.e., due process mediations and hearings; and in state and federal court.

Please contact Ruderman & Knox, LLP about your child’s special education issue.
