1st Session H. R. 610
Your child has been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder by their medical doctor, and you want the school district to do an assessment to determine the need for additional services. The school district does the assessment, and the results come back showing that your child has average cognitive ability, average academic performance and has moderate grades. Your child is diagnosed with ADHD, and is reported as having some off task behaviors in class, but their classroom teacher says they can be redirected and are doing fine academically. Does your child qualify for special education services?
You just had an IEP meeting, and the school district offered your child a change of placement from general education to a special day class. What do you do? You may be wondering if this placement is appropriate for your child, even though the school district personnel told you it was. You may be wondering what other options are available?
