Special Education Categories Of Disability
Cedarhurst Disabilities Attorney
My name is Joseph Fein, and I represent the educational interests of children who have disabilities. As my law firm’s sole and founding attorney, I offer experienced input to decisions regarding educational plans and litigation. My advice can make the difference in providing the special needs education services that are most appropriate to your disabled child’s specific educational needs.
My personal experience advocating for the legal rights of special needs children gives me an edge in determining what kinds of educational services are appropriate for your child’s needs and expediting the process of implementing a corresponding educational program. Throughout the process, I will help you understand the educational options available to your child and the best way to voice your special needs child’s concerns to the Committee on Special Education.
Special needs children have a legal right to a free appropriate public education. If you have a child with disabilities who is not receiving reasonable and appropriate education services, I can help. Call the Law Offices of Joseph M. Fein at 516-881-9558 to schedule a consultation with a compassionate Rockland learning disabilities attorney.
Joseph M. Fein Is Long Island’s Autism Lawyer
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) defines 13 special education categories of disability that adversely affect a child’s education performance and therefore make him or her eligible for services. These include:
- Developmental delay
- Emotional disturbance
- Hearing impairment, including auditory processing disorders
- Intellectual disability
- Multiple disabilities
- Orthopedic impairment
- Other health impairments such as those experienced by medically fragile children
- Specific learning disability
- Speech or language impairment
- Traumatic brain injury
- Visual impairment, including blindness
I represent the families of children in public schools, private schools, residential programs and therapeutic programs with these and other types of disabilities. I also have extensive experience seeking residential placement and other treatment for drug-dependent children.
I am able to act as an education consultant throughout the academic year to ensure that all of your questions regarding your child’s education are answered. I have years of experience advocating on behalf of children’s rights to special education services appropriate to their disability, which will ensure everything legally possible is done to meet their needs. My expertise can work to your benefit, too.
