We have made the decision to draft a 504 plan for our son who is in 3rd grade. He's is ADHD and has been on medication since 1st grade. We just increased his Concerta from 18mg to 27mg so we're hoping this will help him with organization and getting his work done.
I would appreciate advice from those who have done this for their children with ADHD. We seem to be having the most trouble with completing projects and assignments, losing assignments (I often find papers crumpled up in his desk), disorganization. Any ideas on accommodations that would be helpful in addressing these specific issues?
Here are some things I was thinking of:
1. untimed and possibly seperately administered tests
2. repeating directions quietly to him and having him repeat them back
3. shorter tests
4. signing his assigment book daily (both the teacher and the parent to ensure he is writing everything down and bringing home the necessary books)
Also, what challenges, if any, did you have when dealing with the school administrators?
Thank you in advance for your words of wisdom!
