    I have tried repeatedly with the office in Newark to apply for disability for my daughter whom has been in special ed for 12 years. I applied for the past two years because in high school I need her to be able to meet her requirements educationally, she has dyslexia and they are being denied consistently and she meets the requirements for assistance.
