Reply To: 504 plan? – gifted with adhd and mild dyslexia?

A 504 plan will not prevent him from getting into college.

The 504 criteria is a little more nuanced and tricky.

Especially when you discuss the grading…
I generally write my accomodation, “Will not mark off for XYZ unless that is what is being explicitly assessed.”

It is reasonable to say that a history grade should not be affected by grammar, but we don’t want to go through twelfth grade without ever being held accountable for learning grammar. That WILL impact getting into college.

Most of my teachers have an easy end-around for something like an essay, one grade for content and one grade for writing.
