504 Plan Without Medication?
Posted by Andie to ADHD at School on Nov 24, 2013 at 8:47pm
I was wondering if your child must be taking medication in order to qualify for a 504 plan. He is in 1st grade and has been seen by a specialist. His doctor said that because he tests so well that medication would be choice and that regardless of my choice it would be the right decision. He was in the 94th percentile for math and 99th percentile for reading in his MAP testing.
His teacher reports that he constantly has issues completing assignments and is being disruptive. He takes a while to complete his homework but he does do it.
I’m writing a letter to the principle requesting an evaluation and I’m wondering if they will consider it because he’s not taking medication.
I want the best for him and I’m not ready to start medicating him. I just want him to enjoy his time at school and be able have positive experiences.
Any help or comment would be greatly appreciated..
