Covid-19 Distance Learning Opens Door for Remedial Services to Students with ADHD
By: The IEP Guy
Under the Individual with Disabilities Education Act, the federal law that protects the rights of children with ADHD, K-12 schools are required to provide all services specified in each student's individualized education program (IEP), even under the extraordinary circumstances caused by the COVID-19 virus.
When schools reopen, parents will need to take a proactive approach in order to successfully obtain remedial services for their child. "Parents should not expect schools to offer these additional services on their own initiative."
Marchena suggests three tips to help parents prepare for the request: 1) review the student's IEP and make a chart of frequency and type of services the school is required to provide; 2) document any regression in student's academic and functional performance;
The IEP Guy will be launching this new service assisting parents through the process of requesting remedial education services as soon as schools reopen.
