Terry:  Today, I read an article in the Los Angeles Times stating that ADHD had been classified as a Specific Learning Disability by the US Department of Education. Is this accurate? If so, when did this become law?

Once ADHD was moved to a specific learning disability, did this make it eligible for FAPE, where under other health impairment, it may not have been eligible?

The article that you read was probably referring to a document that the federal dept. of education just released. See https://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/us-department-education-releases-guidance-civil-rights-students-adhd
