What can we do for you?

If you have a child with special needs it can be an overwhelming and daunting experience, we know because we have been through it.  At Baystate Special Education Advocacy (BSEA) our focus are services for the special education community but that is not our only area of practice. Below are listed just some of the areas that maybe of service to you.

Advocacy for:

  • Education
  • Special Education
  • Anti-bullying negotiation
  • Mediation for all types of school issues

Legal Services include:

  •  Representation in all areas of special

           education from the initial IEP process thru

           special education hearings.

  •   Anti-bullying
  •   Discrimination
  •   Special Needs Trusts and Planning
  •   Student Discipline
  •   Consulting and Training
  •   Expulsion representation


At BSEA we believe that enlisting the right kind of help early in your child's special education process will lower costs, maintain a positive relationship between parents and the school district and enrich interaction between your child and their school.

It is not about confrontation it is about as a parent getting one opportunity to get you child the services and education they need and deserve.

When IDEA 2004 was reauthorized RTI was given a much larger role than previously with regard to identifying children with learning disabilities. An incredible amount of resources are dedicated to special education each year with a fair amount going to identifying and testing children for specific learning disabilities but the hope is that RTI will help to alleviate this problem.   To read the full article click​ on the ARTICLES/LINKS page.
