Stephanie:  The special education dep. in the public school my son attends forgot he is dyslexic. We have always had a advocate with us for meeting and have shared neurological testing we have done privately. We have been discussing dyslexia for 3 years. they did not stay true to our ppt agreement. we asked that he not be taken out of class and I found out he was. The head of the Special Education stated to me “I didn’t know he was dyslexic. I am currently changing to a 504 plan for him but I don’t trust the special ed. dept. or the school. what do I do?

Ignorance is not an excuse for the law. If you see that the school is not providing services than you must discuss this with them to make sure they are on track. I am unsure why you want to put your son on a 504 plan. I did that & got worse services than when he was on the IEP. There is very little legal support from this plan I have found. if your son is on an IEP keep him on that & fight to get the services he needs.
