– GREAT Letter from Florida Dept of Education about specifying how much therapy (for example) a child will receive and how often. “…What is required is that the IEP include information about the amount of services that will be provided to the child, so that the level of the agency’s commitment of resources will be clear to parents and other IEP Team members..”
Do you have a student with ADHD, a learning disability, a physical disability, a hearing impairment, a psychological or psychiatric disability, or a visual impairment? Many students with ADHD and/or a learning disability have difficulty processing information quickly, and completing tasks within the allotted times. Accommodations can help to “even the playing field” with other students without these difficulties. Evaluations can also be brought to college and used to apply for accommodations on tests at the college level. Your student may qualify for accommodations on standardized testing for college-bound students. Your student can apply for accommodations through the College Board and ETS to receive accommodations on Advanced Placement (AP) Exams, the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and on other post-college exams such as the GRE, MCAT, and LSAT.
