Get The Special Education Services Your Child Needs

Special education law derives from both federal and state statutes and associated regulations. The purpose of these laws and regulations is to provide eligible children with disabilities access to a free and appropriate public education that includes special education and related services. Children with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21 who are eligible for special education services are entitled to receive meaningful access to a public education, and that access is assured through related services.

If you have concerns that your child is not receiving the services he or she needs, the lawyers at the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle are here to provide counsel and staunch advocacy on your behalf. Our goal is to help you ensure your child is experiencing the whole school environment while receiving the appropriate service to do so.

Some common areas of concern parents struggle with in special education matters include:

  • Children with dyslexia: It can be difficult for children with a reading disorder to keep pace academically with other students.
  • Students with autism spectrum disorders: Autism spectrum disorders present difficult challenges for children throughout the school environment.

  • Children with physical or emotional disabilities: Anti-discrimination and special education laws require schools provide children with physical or emotional disabilities with full access to a meaningful education.
  • Massachusetts anti-bullying protection: Schools are required to determine if a child on an IEP is vulnerable to teasing, harassment or bullying. If so, the IEP needs to properly address the issue to protect the child.
