Fighting for Children with Disabilities

Get Help Securing the Right Services for Your Patients

If you work in children’s health care, you’ve probably seen the signs:

  • A child with special needs has a meltdown, so the school calls an ambulance.
  • Children come to your pediatrics office with emotional or behavioral distress because of something lacking at school.

You don’t have to accept this. You can help your patients find a better way.

It’s against the law for a public school to deny a child a free and appropriate education.

The Cuddy Law Firm has decades of experience fighting for the rights of children with disabilities.

Give Children Every Chance

Parents often feel alone when their children have disabilities that hinder learning. They face a daunting maze of regulations. It’s hard to know what you can do for them.

You care about your patients and want to find them the best chance to thrive. And there is something you can do.

Tell parents about the Cuddy Law Firm. The Cuddy Law Firm pursues every opportunity for children, taking their cases to hearing officers, state review officers and, if necessary, to court.

What Does it Cost Parents?

At the Cuddy Law Firm, we understand the financial burdens of raising a child with disabilities.

Cost should never get in the way of a child’s needs.

We offer reduced cost or free services to qualifying families. In some cases, we can recover our fees from the offending school district.

Who We’ve Helped: Success Stories

A New Chance to Thrive: A school district failed to address the needs of a student with a speech impairment.

The Cuddy Law Firm turned the situation around, winning these improvements:

  • A new individualized education program including counseling and speech therapy
  • Testing accommodations for the child
  • Placement in a general classroom with support from a special education teacher

Finding a Better Way:A boy with autism entered a new school program, but his behavior sharply deteriorated. Instead of fixing the program, the school cut it to a half day.

The Cuddy Law Firm argued the school district was responsible for providing services that work for the child.

A hearing officer ordered the district to serve the boy in his home, full-time.
