Zoe: I am a high school student with high-functioning ASD (Asperger’s) and ADHD. I’ve had an IEP since I was ten, and my list of accommodations hasn’t changed much over the years. Unfortunately, my school has decided that, in order to “simulate a college environment,” they won’t allow me to have some (but not all) of what’s listed on my IEP. Out of all the resulting challenges, the biggest thorn in my side is not having alternate assignments; having this accommodation has been a make-or-break factor in multiple less advanced classes, so they can’t just take it out of my IEP altogether. This is actually part of a universal, long-standing policy at my school, and maybe even in my district. Some teachers even claim that this is a College Board policy. This hasn’t caused me to fail any AP classes traditionally offered at my grade level, but now that I’m entering junior year and the pace is picking up, I’m VERY scared, and my parents and I aren’t sure what to do. How could we go about this?
