Do you have an IEP meeting coming up? Are you almost certain that you will hear why your child's school can not possibly give your child the accommodations that you are seeking? Have you heard "Our teachers can't do that, they are over worked as it is" before? If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is help. The NCLID has compiled three lists full of "courteous, yet assertive" responses that parents can use when confronted with excuses from school administration. They have also provided relevant information from sections of the special education law and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to supplement your responses. I highly advise you to review the lists carefully so that you can be prepared the next time you are scheduled to sit across from the IEP team . Don't be afraid to advocate for your ADHD/LD child!
You may also want to review posts that I have written in the past that pertain to IEP meetings.
