Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
All NYS schools must offer special education mediation. Your sons surgery and subsequent learning issues can be categorized as a injury or a disability. The school may have violated the IDEA the NYS law regarding education and students with a disability. You should submit a signed complaint to the NYS Education Department and request an impartial hearing to resolve the schools unwillingness to properly assess and assist your son with his post surgery learning and education needs.
