The Education and Disability Rights Project – is one of our specialized programs that serves persons with disabilities in both Nassau and Suffolk County. Formerly called our PAIR/PADD Project, this transformed initiative has a slightly different focus. In addition to protecting the educational rights of children with disabilities by ensuring the provision of disability related services, they will also assist individuals with disabilities in the negotiation, and where appropriate, appeal of adverse eligibility decisions pertaining to disability related services and programs, and advocate for effective life transitions for individuals with disabilities.
