Success for Students with ADHD: How New Federal Guidance Impacts Your Child
Did you know that many students diagnosed with an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD and ADD) have rights under Federal laws? Join us and learn about federal laws that protect students from discrimination and give guidance on determining if a student has a disability and needs supports and services. We will provide clarification on eligibility, interventions, and accommodations available in public schools and college. You will learn about:
Three Federal Laws Impacting Students with ADHD
New Resource Guides on Students with ADHD and Section 504
When must a school system evaluate a student with ADHD for a possible disability?
Who is eligible, under the laws, for services, interventions, modifications, and accommodations?
Which is better for the student — an IEP or a 504 Plan?
Will a child be eligible if they receive medications or outside tutoring?
Presented by Catherine Adams, Education Consultant and President of the ADHD Resource Group of NOVA, and Dr. Kelly Henderson, Executive Director, Formed Families Forward. Let us know you are coming – register at www.FormedFamiliesForward.org or call 703-539-2904!
