My son is ADHD he has dysgrafia which means he can't write legibly he use to be an B and C student and now he is failing. His teachers send him home for being ill when he isn't and we get in trouble for attendance. His teachers don't understand his disability and refuse to moderate his class work. On top of all this he is dealing with a chronic illness in the family (me his mom has cancer) How can I help him?Answer Question
You poor woman. God bless you! I would call the school superintendent. Maybe he could help. As a disability he has rights. They have you modify things so he could get the best education. Good luck

Talk to the special needs teacher to get him proper testing. Also see if he qualifies for a federal 504 plan. a child with disabilities does get the education they need and. with a 504 plan the school can be held liable for civil rights violation if they send him home or take him out of a class.Â My son is diabetic and has special needs throughout the school day. In order for him to stay in school they have to allow for him to take care of his medical needs . He also gets the ability to retest when he has a medical situation during a test - this happens frequently with diabetics. Many teachers dont understand his disease and have fought it but with the federal laws they eventually have to comply with the plan. this is a civil rights violation.
