Ok, so I have this really weird email in front of me- well, two, actually from Andy's teacher. Andy now has an IEP, categorized as "specific learning disability" and identified as having dysgraphia. We have also learned he has a visual impairment, insufficient convergence. He also is diagnosed with ADHD, but we were denied service solely because of his ADHD because he "tested in normal range."
In the first email, the teacher mentions we may want to consider what accommodations he will need to complete his SOLs because of his ADHD. The next email is the oddity- it seems to imply we can't consider accommodations because of his ADHD. To be specific, she initially asks "do you want to look into accommodations?" then says "after talking to Ms. C, my question isn't valid."
It was my understanding that once you have an IEP, the child's needs are to be considered and met. Period. Not "just those needs pertaining to dysgraphia, because that's why he has an IEP." You don't get a separate 504 plan when you have an IEP.
Anybody else having this issue? Is it just me?
