Is your child with ADHD struggling in school?
You've heard that students affected by ADHD can get extra help in school, but you're not familiar with what the law says about academic accommodations.
Or perhaps you've requested classroom accommodations from your child's school and you want to understanding the rights guaranteed to your child under education law so you can be an informed participant when working with your child's school.
Many students affected by ADHD and its co-occurring conditions are entitled to protection under the law in the form of an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or Section 504 Plan. However, the complexities and nuances between IEPs and 504 Plans can be confusing to many parents. Many parents want to know what the difference is between these laws and how they may apply to their child's education.
Robert Tudisco, a special education attorney and expert on education law, will discuss the differences between the two laws and shed some light on both the advantages and disadvantages of both to help parents understand how either one may meet their child's needs.
If you are wondering what these laws state and how they might benefit your child or would like to ask why there are two different laws regarding education for children affected by ADHD, join us for this webinar.
