Accommodating adhd on the crct considering interracial dating
Sophie: Since advocating for an IEP may take some time, I would suggest that in the meantime you work on strengthening her 504 plan.The single thing that helped me the most in strengthening my son’s 504 plan was that a local special education lawyer told me, “I’ve seen very detailed, lengthy 504 plans, where the list of accommodations went on for several pages.” After hearing that, I started asking for every specific accommodation I could think of that might help my son to be more comfortable and successful in school.It sounds like they are going to refuse us, what are our options?Sandy: Good grades are NO reason to deny a 504, especially when accommodations are already being offered.Accommodations on Tests: SCHOOL NOT COOPERATING WITH ACT TESTING ACCOMMODATIONS Lauren: How should I proceed if ACT has granted multiple-day accommodations to my child over a 3-week period in order to take the ACT exam and the school is not cooperating with providing a schedule that works for my child (given his needs) and also refuses to secure a proctor that is available?Sophie: Lauren, I don’t have specific experience with this, but my first idea would be to contact the folks at the ACT Program, including a copy of the IEP or 504 plan.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.If you feel strongly about the use of the accommodation, disagree with any new one that is selected, or disagree if the Team selects no new one, you do have access to dispute resolution options.
They should have a district policy or state rule to show you what supports their statement.
Whatever the reason, the Team should discuss whether a new testing accommodation is needed (the testing manual can be helpful for this).
You can ask that any new accommodation be tested out for a certain period of time.
Also, take a look at these instructions for homebound students: ACT is a private organization I am not sure that the accommodations they approved can be enforced.
My son does have a 504 but our school has stated that it is is a courtesy that they administer the ACT and are under no obligation to do so, and, that it is a loss of revenue for them each time they do.
