My name is Denise.
My youngest daughter(8) seems to have all of the symptoms of dyslexia however the school fails to recognize as a learning disability. I guess I feel really unsure as to what to do next.
The district has tested her and although they found all kinds of things wrong that are standard dyslexia issues, they fail to see her as having a disability.
I have started to switch her from a family doctor to a pediatrician that I heard helps with this but I feel totally lost when it comes to IEPs and 504s.
Do I need a doctor's diagnosis and recommendations to legally start either of these and what is the difference....in English (LOL.
