adhd - iep ... ???
My son has a serious case of ADHD. I'm wondering if anyone has a child with ADHD and an IEP? I've been reading through the Special Education Laws, and it seems like it could go either way ....
We will begin testing soon. Have a meeting scheduled for August 19th with the school to begin evaluation for an IEP.
At the last meeting, June 2nd, 2010, they tried to talk me out of having my son evaluated. The Resource Specialist told me that my son's existing 504 Plan is a very powerful tool, and looks really good.
Then he removed 12 items from my son's existing 504 Plan. Says that he wants to experiment and see what works.
As a result of the school not following my son's 504 Plan, and not providing the necessary assistance and accommodations to help my son succeed in school, my son failed 7th grade, which is totally unacceptable ... !!!
I've heard that a 504 Plan is difficult to enforce .... Is that true? Many people say that an IEP is much better, but what if we can't get an IEP, and have to stick with the 504 Plan?
