In addition, Sussan, Greenwald & Wesler provides a range of general and special needs estate planning services to assist families in securing their child’s financial future. This is of vital importance to ensure that not only is your family protected but that the rights of your child are protected as well.
In New Jersey, every child who has a disability which adversely impacts his or her education, is entitled to a free and appropriate public education. This means that school districts must offer children with special needs access to a full range of educational settings. These range from regular public school classrooms that offer some support services to residential schools that provide for full-time education and monitoring of a special needs child. No matter what disability your child has, our special education law attorneys at Sussan, Greenwald & Wesler can help.
Parents of children with special needs should be fully informed of their child’s rights so they can take part in the educational planning process. Both federal and New Jersey law require that public school districts enable students with disabilities to make appropriate educational progress. Education is not defined solely as academics, but includes social, emotional and behavioral learning needs as well. School districts must work with parents to develop programming that is individually tailored to address the learning needs of students with:
· Autism spectrum disorders and Asperger’s syndrome
· Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
· Auditory processing disorder
· Behavioral disorders
· Cognitive impairment
· Developmental delays
· Emotional disturbance
· Hearing impairment
· Orthopedic impairment
· Sensory integration dysfunction
· Specific learning disabilities
· Speech and language impairment
· Traumatic brain injury
· Visual impairment
