NYC DEPARTMENT Of EDUCATION FAIR HEARINGS
"Your testimony today was very helpful, and the parent was in tears afterwards, saying she was grateful that someone came along who really knew how to evaluate him. She is hopeful that his life will be significantly improved now that we have a better understanding of his issues and needs." – Attorney
A great deal of his practice relates to evaluation of cases where the plaintiff requests a “Fair Hearing.” The evaluator’s unique expertise of both a clinical and board certified school neuropsychologist almost always reveals the types of issues and services needed by the student. Dr. Newman also works as approved independent provider (AA2) for the Department of Education and has vast experience with contracted out evaluations. If you have a child with disabilities and you believe that he or she has not been provided a free and appropriate public education or reasonable accommodations, you can request a hearing. At a hearing, an impartial hearing officer listens to both sides of the disagreement and decides if anything went wrong and how to fix it. The combination of “knowing both sides” often is very advantageous to leading to positive outcome for his clients.

After studying each case of reading disability, the examiner will find it helpful to list these five general causative areas, constitutional, intellectual, emotional, education, and environmental, then itemize under each al the factors discovered which may help to explain the child’s difficulties. – Monroe & Backus. 1937
In all remedial work, the teacher should start first with the child and then find the appropriate method. Fit the method to the child, not the child to the method. – Monroe, 1935
