ADHD at School
legal rights for School provide a behavior analyst (BCBA)???
After two years that I have been trying to get accommodations made with the school through the development of a 504 plan (another long story there), I have finally gotten the ball officially rolling now for my 3rd grade son. At the conclusion of the recent planning meeting it was unanimously decided that a 504 plan is and should have been necessary. As part of the plan establishment there are all sorts of observational assessments that need to be completed within 2 weeks. As I understand it, other schools utilize a BCBA to conduct these assessments, but in my school the part-time, overwhelmed, child study team is “sharing” the assessment responsibilities with much of the “work” falling into the teacher’s lap. I am not satisfied with this and have written a letter to the superintendent requesting an outside BCBA be brought in to conduct these observations. I have a meeting with him on Monday (3/10/14) at 9 am. Does anyone know my legal rights???
