Old Bridge Special Education Attorney

About Old Bridge Township School District

Old Bridge Township is located in Middlesex County, NJ. Approximately 8500 students attend the district’s 14 schools, of whom over 1200 are classified as special needs. Almost 20 special needs students are sent out-of-district, as the district has incorporated many out-of-district offerings within the public schools’ curricula. 

The annual budget is over $156 million, of which the local taxpayers raise over $13 million. Over $20 million is for Special Education . Per pupil cost is in over $16,200 annually. 

As in most public school districts in New Jersey, Special Education represents a significant portion of the district’s costs and responsibilities. Consequently, the districts face significant fiscal restraints when dealing soaring costs. It is important that parents of special needs students be fully represented by a knowledgeable Special Education Attorney or Educational Advocate from a child’s initial Individualized Education Program (IEP) through to the student’ s graduation or de-classification. The laws dictating his/her education are complicated and could be very costly to both the parent and the school district. No one knows your child better than you. That knowledge and insight must be communicated so that the student receives the education he/she deserves and is required by law to receive.

Special Education Attorneys in Old Bridge

One of the most important parts of a special needs child’s education is in the creation and monitoring of the Individualized Education Program (IEP). The development of this document requires time, patience, evaluation, monitoring, and future planning. Strict time-lines are set. Medical and Educational evaluations must be studies to ascertain where the child is academically, medically, emotionally, and socially. When this is known, it must be determined where he/she should be in those areas. At that point, it is incumbent upon the child study team (of which you, the parent, is/are members) to develop the measurable goals and objectives to get to where he/she should be. 

At Susan Clark Law Group, we have been involved in numerous cases that deal with various areas of special education needs, including:
