Special Education Law Office in Massachusetts


Children with disabilities are entitled to special education services under both federal and state laws. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) is a federal law that requires states and public agencies to provide early intervention, special education and related services to children with disabilities. Massachusetts has enacted its own statutes which govern the rights of disabled children in this state. Under these laws, children ages three through twenty-one who have not attained a high school diploma are potentially eligible to receive special education services.

Understanding all of the special education terms and procedures under federal and state law can be overwhelming. If you have questions for our education law office in Massachusetts, about your child’s rights to special education services, please contact us. The attorneys at Sankey Law, a special education law office in Massachusetts,  understand the steps that are necessary to get your child the free appropriate public education he or she is legally entitled to receive and would be delighted to assist you.
