Education Law


Special Education Attorney in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Florida

Harassment and Bullying of Special Education Students | Inappropriate Methods of Punishment or Behavioral Control

If your child has special educational needs, including difficulties with behavior due to their disability, they can often find themselves facing punishment at school, even though their actions are beyond their control. With the challenges that school systems face financially, many schools lack the resources to identify the causes of misbehavior or to take appropriate steps when faced with such behavioral challenges. As a result, your child may be subjected to unnecessary and inappropriate sanctions. We can help protect their rights.

At the law offices of Hornstine Law, LLC, with offices in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, we take an aggressive stance on behalf of special education students who have been exposed to inappropriate punishment by a teacher, principal, administrator or other school official. We know that every case is different and take the time to learn as much as we can about your child, as well as the circumstances that led to their punishment. We work hard to provide a relaxed atmosphere in our offices, where you have the confidence that your child’s welfare is our primary concern. We strive to treat every client as we would want to be treated were the roles reversed.

We provide a free initial consultation. For a confidential consultation with a knowledgeable special education attorney, contact our office online or call us at 215-568-4968 (in New Jersey at 609-523-2222 or in Florida at 727-538-4178).
