During the 2005-06 school year, my son Brian was transitioning out of EI and into CPSE, kindergarten, after looking at the district's program, we knew it would not be appropriate for our son's needs. We wanted him to attend a program that would benefit him, not the program that Massapequa school district had just switched to. We knew we needed an attorney to help us, but not just an education attorney, one that really cares and listens to the parents. I was referred to Susan Deedy through my sister-in-law and contacted her office. She immediately called me back. We discussed at length our concerns with the upcoming district meeting; we just wanted what was best for our son. She listened with compassion, concern and more important, with our son's best interests at heart. Susan has always followed-up during the school year to see how he is doing in the program and if we have any concerns.
We have Susan Deedy for the past 7 years and with her on our side we have always received the services we needed for our son. She has always fought to get our son into the best program that matched his needs.
I have recommended Susan to various parents in the past and would not hesitate to do so again.
