Mavis v. Sobol, 839 F. Supp. 968 (N.D.N.Y. 1993)

Mr. Stanczak represented the parents of a student with Down’s Syndrome that led to a Federal court ruling in favor of student and her parents.  The Court ruled
that the school district failed to make sufficient efforts to allow the student
to participate in regular education classes and ordered that the
school district provide additional training to the student’s teachers and aide
in the utilization of educational techniques intended to foster the inclusion
of children with intellectual disabilities into the regular class setting.  This was an early ‘inclusion” case and helped to establish the principle within the Second Circuit.
