Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, Attorneys Seeking Fair Education for the Disabled
It is important for parents to understand their children's rights to fair and appropriate education (FAPE) regardless of their mental or physical disability. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) set standards for the education schools and school districts must provide to help disabled children succeed.
At Murphy & Murphy, P.C., our lawyers have years of experience handling education law matters for clients who have a special needs child. We have a comprehensive understanding of the education laws applying to disabled children and take the time to explain to parents their child's education rights. Our attorneys are the parents of children with special needs and we have a unique insight into these matters. We use our personal and professional experience when working to obtain a fair education for your child.
The education plans must be tailored for their special needs students, but schools and school districts are also responsible to follow state mandated rules and regulations for special education programs. These rules and policies tend to be very complex and require specialized experience to understand what they mandate and how they can be implemented.
Our firm reviews your school district's policies for the disabled and the special education services they offer. We represent the interests of parents who believe that the special education program in their child's school is inadequate and is not effectively meeting their child's needs.
In addition, specific accommodations must be made to suit your child's physical and mental needs. If the accommodations are not made or are insufficient, get in touch with our firm for specific advice and guidance. Fair education for the disabled must be provided regardless of the age or limitations of the student.
We also handle issues related to the development of a 504 plan and an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in order to ensure they are properly drafted to include an accurate assessment of your child and the goals of your child's education plan.
