ADHD in Ohio
Tired of Fighting Groveport Schools.
My grandson is in middle school. He has a 504. Every year since starting middle school. (he is in 8th), so this is the third year… It is meeting after meeting,. The only accommodations they are willing to make is to allow breaks during the end of the year testing that grade the school. We have asked for notes of classroom, to allow him to turn things in late (he forgets his work in locker etc) and things of that nature. The teachers say to allow him any of these accommodations is not fair to the other students. How fair is it to this child to punish him for his ADHD symptomatic actions? We are getting ready to schedule yet another meeting at the school. (probably 12-15 in 2.4 years) This time we want to take an attorney that will let them know that ADHD is a disability and that there are disability acts that require them to accommodate this child’s needs. The problem is… what kind of attorney?
