My 8 yr son was recently diagnosed with ADD. I'm looking for any advice on how to approach his school about re-evaluating him to get back on an IEP or to start a 504 plan.
Some back story- my son has been struggling with school since kindergarten and he is now in the 3rd grade. My son was on an IEP up until December 2020 primarily for speech. He was released at that time, upon my first conferences with his 3rd teacher I have since found out that he is reading at a kindergarten level and has a writing and math level of a 1st grader. I have been in contact with my sons school principal since I received this information and asked for my son to be reevaluated for the IEP. The principal told me that she was not going to reevaluate because he was just released a year ago. So now I'm lost, being as I have the professional diagnosis now of him having ADD how do I approach the converstaion about either reevaluating him for the IEP or to see if he is eligible for the 504 plan?? I know this was a really long post and I apologize, I just feel very over whelmed and worried about my sons academic success and I'm looking for any advice any of you may have. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you in advance for any advice shared. Have a wonderful day!!!!
