Academic achievement isn’t the only criterion any more — but many schools have not absorbed this. One also needs to look at the child’s functioning. Are there any other potential diagnoses? Try to work with the primary care doctor. Also, I find it helpful to work backwards, and figure out what accommodations and modifications are likely to be most helpful for the student, and build my advocacy strategy around the list of techniques I think will help the child progress better.
