Understanding Free And Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)

Under federal law, students with special educational needs are entitled to a Free and Appropriate Public Education, otherwise known as FAPE. However, while the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) guarantees FAPE, its interpretation often leads to disagreements between the parents of children with special needs and their school districts. While school districts may believe they are providing an appropriate education for a child, his or her parents may see it as a denial of FAPE.

Based in New York, the Law Offices of Neal H. Rosenberg have been a leader in education law for more than 45 years. Our staff of knowledgeable and experienced attorneys is dedicated to ensuring your child receives the accommodations and services he or she requires to achieve academic success.

My Child's Needs Are Not Being Met. What Can I Do?

When parents and school districts are unable to resolve FAPE disputes, parents may exercise their due process rights and have a hearing officer determine whether their child is being appropriately educated by the district.
