Parents of children with learning disabilities in New York City and the surrounding area
If you believe your child’s school has not provided a free appropriate public education or appropriate academic services, Huntington can help. Huntington partners with families, educators, lawyers, and advocates to give every student the best education possible.
Under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), every student is guaranteed a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Individual states have state laws and polices about special education.
Huntington can provide you with the independent educational evaluation that IDEA requires. You or your school pay for this evaluation.
The Impartial Hearing and your Rights
If you believe your child’s education rights have been violated, IDEA offers you a means to pursue a solution. You have the right to request an Impartial Hearing if you believe the school has not provided your child with an appropriate education or academic services, or if you disagree with the Department of Education’s (DOE) ruling about your child’s special education placement, services, evaluations, classification, or eligibility.
Huntington partners with advocates and attorneys to help you navigate the Impartial Hearing process. Huntington can provide experts to testify on behalf of our academic evaluation and proposed tutoring program at Impartial Hearings and other meetings.
To schedule testing or a consultation, call 1-800-CAN-LEARN.
If your child’s school declines or is unable to provide the tutoring services that are required by his or her Individualized Education Program (IEP), you have the following options:
- The DOE must arrange for an outside agency, such as Huntington, to provide the services
- Huntington offers compensatory services
- If the DOE denies your request, you can file an Impartial Hearing
Huntington offers the following:
- Private Evaluation
Huntington’s academic evaluation pinpoints your child’s academic strengths and weaknesses and prescribes an individualized learning program to reach his or her academic goals.
- Enhanced Rate, Private Tutor
Huntington provides 1-1 tutoring and test prep programs.
- Compensatory Services
If your child did not receive the educational services required by his or her Individualized Education Program (IEP) or was otherwise incorrectly served, your child may be entitled to compensatory or make-up services. To receive compensatory services, you may need to request an Impartial Hearing. Huntington provides compensatory tutoring services.

With parental permission, we can provide the advocate or attorney with the academic evaluation results and program results for mediation and due process purposes.

The Huntington methodology is based on almost 40 years of academic experience helping hundreds of thousands of students nationwide. Each learning program is customized to the individual student providing personalized attention and proven results. We work with multi-sensory curricula and build executive functioning skills in addition to phonics, reading, writing, math, and study skills programs.
