Accommodating students with dyslexia in all classroom settings
I admire your persistence— Jennifer: Mari, while I feel your pain, I have never heard of a school being allowed to diagnose ADHD.There surely are some resources that can help these parents obtain the services they need.
It sounds like they are going to refuse us, what are our options?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.One potential reason I can think of is the use of that accommodation on statewide standardized testing.
For a student to receive a particular accommodation on statewide testing, he should routinely be using that same accommodation during in-class testing.
My child has been very very successful when given accommodations of both ET and Paper Pencil based tests.
