Legal Resources

Americans with Disabilities Act Home Page

From the U.S. Department of Justice. Resources available through the government.

Understanding IEP Law and Special Education

Special education and IEP law were generally developed first at the federal level and then at the state level. If there is ever a conflict between state and federal law, federal law must be followed.

Federal, State & Civil Rights Laws

The In’s and Out’s of Social Security Disability Law, Civil Rights & Worker’s Rights, Federal & State Laws, Matrimonial/Divorce, Immigration,  and Personal Injury Laws. These are just a few concerning areas of Law that our children endure on a daily basis. If we can’t educate without the proper accuracy and proficiency of information, one can only wonder of the predictions and outcomes he/she may face.

IDNYC is the new, free identification card for all New York City residents, which gives all of us the opportunity to explore what NYC has to offer. From the age of 10, students can feel more comfortable knowing they have a valid government issued photo identification card. IDNYC secures peace of mind and access to what the City has to offer from free to discounted events, museums, theater, etc. IDNYC benefits every New York City resident, including the most susceptible communities—the homeless, youth, elderly, undocumented immigrants, formerly incarcerated and others who may have difficulty obtaining other government-issued ID.
