I'm not sure if any of you are aware of it but the government has a law that requires schools to adapt to a child with disablilities to give them an edge so to speak.
It's called the 504 plan and I had to find out the hard way. Look it up on the net. It's very helpful.
You can (within limiits) set requirements for the school to follow to help your child with his education.
For instance ADD kids can read their assignment but since they are focused on the reading they miss the message--so you can have it so that they get oral testing rather than the written ones.
You can request that they have more tiime to hand in their assignments, or even better do 1/2 or 3/4 of it--they need to learn the concept of the assignment not the competion of the problmes.
Please read up on this, it sure helped us! ↓
