Last week on Ask the Governor, a mother called in and asked for help for her son who is falling behind because of a reading disability.

The woman was fighting with the education system, trying to get her son the help he desperately needed. Normally, the mother's case would be sent to arbitration which can be extremely costly.  Arbitration in her son's case would've cost in upwards of $10,000. The Governor's staff got in touch with her after the show to provide her with some assistance. We have not yet heard from the mom or how the situation has progressed yet.

Mary Coogan, the coordinator of a great  program, Kid Law, actually reached out to Jim via Email today to let him know that this mom and other parents, have a great resource at their fingertips. Kid Law is a resource center and their attorney and certified mediator provides free assistance to parents of children with learning problems. You can check out their website at They are free resource for parents, guardians and the like with a host of information regarding topics such as adoption, education and health.

If you're child is in a similar situation or is in need of some form of assistance. Kid Law may be a great resource to you. They are having an information session on Thursday October 25th from 6:00-8:00 pm at Trenk, DiPasquale, Della Fera & Sodono, P.C. 347 Mount Pleasant Avenue, Suite 300, West Orange, NJ.
