I’m in a similar situation; my son has a 504 plan, but it is no longer has the impact/interventions needed for the increase in social-emotional and behavioral issues. At the same time, he has been on medication for over 7 years; with it, he is able to focus for a period of time, carrying on insightful conversations with adults/teachers. He is also very bright. I think it will be difficult for the team of evaluators to ‘not’ rule out the primary symptoms of his ADHD — as I found in the past, when he went from an IEP to a 504 plan once on meds. As much as I do not want to do this to him and I will seek additional counsel — I may cut meds in half.
