What Should an IEP Include?

Filed Under: ADHD Accommodations, 504s, IEPs

Q:

"What should be included in my son's IEP plan?"

A:

That depends entirely upon your child's individual needs, but some accommodations commonly put in place for students with ADHD are: preferential seating in class, extended time for written tests and assignments, help in maintaining a daily planner, and a second set of books to be kept at home, so the student does not have to remember to bring each book home each night. Work with your son's school to develop the best plan for him.

Dr. Clare Jones was an educational consultant in Scottsdale, Arizona, respected throughout the psychological community for her work with ADHD children and adults. She passed away in late 2006 and is truly missed.
