You can ask that any new accommodation be tested out for a certain period of time.Then the Team can meet again when this time period is up, to determine if the accommodation is working or if a new one should be tried.Teachers can certainly recognize the symptoms, but they cannot diagnose.Willingness or unwillingness to medicate should not stop the diagnosis from happening. Accommodations: SCHOOL OFFERS UNOFFICIAL ACCOMMODATIONS, NO 504 Mary: My 16 year old son has Aspergers, ADD, Anxiety, and Depression.I have been very firm with the Special Ed Director in insisting that it is our job to determine their disability. My parents are unable to afford a trip to the doctor and I don’t think they should have to. Morning: Mari, I want to applaud you for being such a strong advocate for students.Meanwhile the year is ticking away and these kids will leave me and be out of my reach. I know of many students with ADHD who are not on medication with documentation from their doctors. I would encourage you to educate the parents on how to navigate the school system and refer the parents to state resources to help them.Accommodations: OHI-SPED Gina: My daughter is currently under the 504 plan for OHI however we are needing a bit more help other than the current accommodations. JG: Gina – If you think the 504 plan is not meeting her needs but *could* be revised to meet her needs, you can ask the school to do so.You can also ask them to reevaluate her, so they have current information about her needs (Section 504 requires periodic reevaluation).
There surely are some resources that can help these parents obtain the services they need.His documented disability is aspergers syndrome and he has a documented delay in processing.Parent advocate is also telling me that I can‚Äôt do anything about it.His school does not want him to have a 504 because he he gets good grades even though they have made unofficial accommodations; whereas we and his health providers believe we should make those accommodations official (such as reduced workload when overwhelmed and flexible scheduling).It sounds like they are going to refuse us, what are our options?
