My son is in our district's Highly Capable (HiCap), or gifted program. He started in 2nd grade and had the same teacher for 2nd and 3rd grade. She was a gem, and SO helpful during the process we went through getting him diagnosed with
Asperger's Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD.
During this time, his teacher and I set up some stuff for him in the classroom to help him cope and deal with over stimulation. Now that he's in 4th grade, he has a new teacher. It looks like she's going to be a gem too, but she's new to the school, and to him.
Thursday night I struggled to remember all the things that have been put in place for my son to help him, as I was writing an email to his new teacher about him, which got me thinking. Friday he had a doctor's appointment and I got talking to his principal about maybe needing to set up something for him that would follow him from grade to grade, instead of me trying to remember it all.
The principal mentioned a 504 plan. She was going to talk with his new teacher, the school counselor, and then get back with me about it.
What exactly would a 504 plan entail?
