Due to the impact of COVID-19, many schools are having to change from face-to-face teaching to remote learning or even a hybrid environment. For students with ADHD who required classroom accommodations, whether through a 504 plan or an IEP, will the same guidelines apply in each learning situation? Dr. Jeffrey Katz gives parents insight into the child’s rights to educational accommodations for the 2020-2021 school year.
