Special Education Law in New York City, NY
Fighting For Your Special Needs Child
Do you know how many laws protect your child with special needs? If your child’s school is discriminating against your child, or providing them a subpar education in a way, they don't have a legal leg to stand on.
Discovering that your child has special needs can be a shattering, frightening, and devastating experience. Many parents often blame themselves when they discover their child has a special need. All any parent ever wants is for their child to grow up healthy, and live a prosperous life, avoiding devastations, and major setbacks. Having a child with a special need is not something that can easily be overlooked. Education that both tends to your child’s needs, as well as provides them with inclusive, well rounded education is not only essential, but is also something public schools must provide. If your child’s special needs have been neglected, please do not hesitate to contact a Special Education Attorney right away.
In 1990, the Federal Government passed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which grants all students the right to a free, appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. This means that every public school, including all those in the state of New York, must provide your child with education instruction designed to meet his or her specific needs. Oftentimes, in certain unfortunate education facilities, there is a misconception that special education is a place, and not a structured system. Students with special needs have the right to be educated in a regular classroom with their peers that have no special needs. If your child is being isolated at school to be educated, this can be very detrimental to your child’s development and you should not hesitate to contact an experienced Special Education Attorney promptly.
Educating your child in an isolated environment can not only have negative social development and interaction impacts, but can also lead to subpar education that may not be up to the same standard as your child’s peers who are without special needs. This unequal treatment is not only a gross misconduct, but is also a violation of Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This act states that all persons with disabilities are to be free from discrimination, and be provided with the equal education opportunity to learn that which all other students are expected to learn. Furthermore, Article 89, of the New York State Education Law and part 200 of the commissioner’s regulations serve as the acting vehicle to implement these requirements in the state of New York.
There is obviously an overwhelming amount of legal support that insures that that your child receives the proper education that he or she needs without discrimination or isolation. Unfortunately, some schools allow children to fall through the cracks, and do not specifically cater to a child’s special needs, as the law requires. If you believe this gross misconduct and blatant act of discrimination is occurring against your child, please do not hesitate to contact Managing Attorney Angel Castro and his team in New York City, NY.

Mr. Castro has provided me with competent legal services on several occasions. He has demonstrated a level of professional advice beyond his years. I Highly recommend his expertise on Real Estate, Divorce and Personal Injury litigation.
A++ attorney, the only I'd recommend.
I was illegally detained, had my property broken into and taken, then arrested by the same officers all without probable cause or warrant and looking at possible felony charges. My brother called Angel, whom he knew from college, Angel showed up to my arrignment with my family and successfully lowered my bail. Since then he's successfully represented me as all felony charges have been dropped and I'm finally out of that mess. Several things I noted 1) Angel has a great ability to network and gather intelligence from various sources 2) Angel is friendly, compassionate and with positive attitude which is helpful in stressful times 3) I've noticed Angel is an attorney that is passionate about helping people and correcting a system that needs to change. I expect him to do great things as an attorney and he'll probably upset some officers and judges. Haha. Wish you the best Angel, you're the only attorney I'd recommend.
