ADHD at School
Hello! My 9 year-old son was diagnosed with ADHD in November 2012 while he was in second grade. So far he has been fortunate enough to have teachers who are willing to provide special accommodations for the things he struggles most with - test taking, independent time, etc. His teachers have been great, and we were able to always keep it friendly. However, now that he is going into 4th grade where the work and expectations are continuing to grow, I am considering having a 504 Plan created for him. For those parents with 504 Plans for their children, would anyone be willing to share examples of the types of accommodations they have for their children? My son has a particularly difficult time taking tests if there is the slightest distraction, especially from other students, so we always try to get him segregated.
