Rochester, New York
If your special needs child isn’t receiving the education they deserve, the knowledgeable attorneys at Tully Rinckey can help. We advocate for the rights of your child, doing so with discretion and an attention to the privacy of your family. We’re ready to work hard for your child’s well-being.
When it comes to schooling, no parent wants to see their child receive an inadequate education. Children with disabilities are especially entitled to a free and appropriate public education that takes into consideration their special needs – rights protected under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). If you have a special needs child, you should expect your public school to prepare your child for future employment and education, and for living independently.
The attorneys at Tully Rinckey PLLC understand how frustrating it can be when a public school district is failing to provide necessary accommodations for your child in school, or when a district is recommending services or restrictions that your high-functioning child may not need. We’re committed to helping you assert your rights and those of your child. Working closely with administrators and teachers, we advise you on how to obtain better programs and services for your child, so that they receive the best possible education.
Our skilled and compassionate attorneys can serve as advocates of children with special needs by helping parents pursue a number of remedies, including:
We can also assist you in disputing your school district’s evaluation and classification of your child, including advocating for an independent evaluation to determine what, if any, special services your child might need. In addition, we can help you plan for the future of your child by lending our advice and guidance in estate, disability, and guardianship planning.
