Fiona: As parents we wrote to school asking for further formal testing on Nov 3, 2015 after testing at our expense revealed moderate dyslexia for our 10yo who was struggling at school. We have heard nothing, and its now Jan 3 2016. Both older 2 kids have dx processing disorders and one also has ADD. He had to fail completely before we got help offered in form of 504. We are basically being told the same thing for our youngest. If we write and request testing doesn’t the school(district) have to test?We are being told that the 504 is ONLY for the teacher to make classroom accomm which state in the 504, that accommodations happen only at the discretion of the teacher,not consistently.Does the school have further time avail to them? Am I off base?
In the 504 mtg I was told that all state testing now provides all children with time and a half so our child with newly dx moderate dyslexia will not qualifty for extra time….a 504 accomodation that is being inconsistently provided currently. What are our options if any?
