Autism And Educational Opportunity

My New York special education law firm’s experience with autism education services has taught me that autism can affect:

  • Communication, verbal and nonverbal
  • Repetitive behaviors: repeating words or actions, obsessively following routines, exhibiting specific ways of arranging belongings
  • Social interaction, physical and verbal

Health care providers, teachers and anyone else who comes in contact with an autistic child may have a great amount of difficulty “getting through.” Hence, the critical need for special education for autistic children.

Today, autism is thought of as a “spectrum” disorder. Instead of amounting to a single condition, it’s considered a group of conditions with a variety of similar features. Physicians employ a term like autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, to describe people with mild to severe symptoms. ASD can include:

  • Asperger’s syndrome
  • Atypical autism
  • Rett syndrome
  • Autistic disorder
  • Childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD)
  • Pervasive developmental disorder

I am a New York special education and disability lawyer with years of experience and many satisfied clients. I will apply my extensive legal knowledge and skills to protect your child’s right to autism education services. I can help.
