October is ADHD Awareness Month. This is a good time to check your student's IEP and make sure it is in order. Pull out the IEP and review the accommodations. Contact the school and teachers to be sure accommodations are in place. If the accommodations are not in place, ask for a meeting as soon as possible. You want to do this at the elementary level, middle school, and high school. If your son or daughter is in college, teach him or her how to be their own advocate.
