NYLPI’s Disability Justice Program protects and promotes the educational rights of students with disabilities in New York City. Our attorneys, social workers, and other advocates use a variety of approaches to ensure that students with disabilities have access to the Free Appropriate Public Education mandated by federal and state law, including advice and technical assistance, advocacy at special education meetings and mediations, and direct and pro bono representation at due process hearings. NYLPI also engages in impact litigation, provides special education training to students, parents, and advocates, and has developed educational materials to assist parents and advocates in special education advocacy.
Here is a flyer for parents in English, and a flyer for parents in Spanish, to help them find out more about our special education work.
