Basic Guide to Special Education

Posted on June 24, 2022

Special education can be a difficult process to navigate. ACNJ, with the generous support of The IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey, has released its updated Special Education Guide, helping parents and caregivers to understand their child's education rights in New Jersey.

This guide is intended as a reference for people who have questions about special education for a child. It summarizes the basic procedures, services and rights of children to an education and represents current federal and state laws and regulations. It is not intended to offer advice or legal guidance. For an expanded, legally-grounded explanation of any aspect of the special education process, parents/caregivers should contact Advocates for Children of New Jersey’s Kidlaw Legal Resource Center. Staff attorneys can provide printed information and limited personal assistance to individual parents/caregivers. Spanish consultations are available.
