I just printed out a letter requesting an evaluation for my son. Should I wait until they actually do the evaluation before I request an IEP? I will deliver four copies to the school tomorrow (principal, assistant principal, school psychologist, and learning director). My son already has a 504 Plan, but the school he is attending has not been very cooperative with me, and now my son will fail 7th grade. He is taking Concerta (for several years now), which helps, but he still has issues (ADHD, hypoglycemia, physical limitations, and suffers from serious emotional trauma). I have repeatedly asked the teachers and the principal to help my son get caught up with his missing assignments. My son is very forgetful, loses stuff everyday (literally!), scatter-brained, daydreaming, messy, disorganized, can't find anything, has serious problems focusing, paying attention, staying on task, easily distracted .... I've informed all of his teachers that he has a 504 Plan, and have asked them to give us the missing assignments, or alternate assignments, but they keep blaming my son. I am very disappointed, frustrated, angry .... I've tried to remain calm and diplomatic, but have just about gotten to the end of the rope! The vice-principal told me that she will set up an appointment to revise the 504 Plan, but not until after the new school year has already started, which is not until August! I know that it would be good to connect with his new teachers in 8th grade, and I will do that, but I don't want to wait until he has already started 8th grade in August to begin this process. I want him evaluated sooner than August. And I want to make some revisions to my son's 504 Plan, and also to have an IEP. My son is not an F and D student. He is highly intelligent and has had some very high scores on his various tests. He communicates with adults on a very high level, is very sophisticated for his age (13), loves to read, is interested in science and history, and wants to be successful in school. Help ... !!!
