At my request, the school tested him for auditory processing problems and learning disabilities. They said he doesn't have a disability, but he has low cognitive skills and it takes longer for him to process information. They claim that ADHD doesn't qualify as a learning disability. They would not put him on a 504 Plan or give him any accommodations. Is this legal?
I would call Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorders (CHADD) at 1-800-233-4050 or go to their website at http://www.chadd.org and ask them to help you walk through the system of getting appropriate services for your son. Attorney Lawrence M. Siegel's book, The Complete IEP Guide: How to Advocate for Your Special Ed Child might also be a helpful resource to you.
