My son has been diagnosed with ADHD 3 years ago, and is on medication. Up to this point, the school has made some accomodations for him, but last year (first year middle school) the bamboozling has increased, as well as my frustration with the school, so I formally requested an Evaluation. The question is whether he should be on medication when the school performs the evaluations or not. The district director is telling me that they already know he has adhd, they are trying to measure his ability on meds (??) It makes no sense whatsoever to me. Why measure your eyesight wearing glasses? Why measure ADHD while taking ritalin? Does anyone know what the law has to say about this? I appreciate any input!
