Let us guide you through the CSE process

The legalities within special education in New York State are many.  Parents are often unsure of what their child needs to succeed and what the school district can and should be doing for their child.  Open Doors Educational Advocates work with families in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess, and throughout the Hudson Valley to gain understanding of your child's special needs, the supports within your school district, and how to maximize those supports to ensure that your child receives the free and appropriate public education they are entitled to.

Whatever your situation and the challenges your child faces, we have solutions.
