Is your child with ADHD struggling with reading, thinking, concentrating, or organizing?

Even if your child is performing well at school, he may have a disability under Section 504 and be entitled to special education or related aids and services.

If you have a child with ADHD or you advocate for a child with ADHD, the publications in today's newsletter are required reading.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will find answers to your questions about services and accommodations for a child with ADHD and get clarification on your child's rights.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Know Your Rights!

For students with ADHD, US DOE issued a "Know Your Rights Document" that explains your rights and the school’s legal obligations for providing FAPE under Section 504.


Resource Guide: Students with ADHD

If the school believes your child has a disability and needs special education services, they must evaluate.

If you think your child has ADH or he has received a diagnosis from a professional outside of school, request an evaluation.


Failure to Identify & Evaluate ADHD - Denies FAPE

My son has ADHD and they don't want him in school. How do I get help?

OCR investigated and found school districts often fail to identify and evaluate students with ADHD. OCR issued three policy guidance documents for clarification of Section 504 and students with ADHD.
