Understanding School Accommodations

Please join my guest Stacey Cannon as she shares critical information parents must know to navigate the school accommodations process.

Stacey’s presentation will provide you better understanding of:  

  • The differences and similarities between Special Education (IEP) and 504 Plans
  • How to request the use of these programs for your child
  • Eligibility requirements for each plan
  • The types of accommodations and modifications possible
  • The benefits of using the IEP or 504 Process
  • How to prepare for the ARD meeting
  • What to do if the school says “no” to an accommodation
  • What to do if the accommodations are not working
  • What to do if the accommodations are not being followed

Strengthening Parent-Child Relationships

What an honor it was to present the Chaos Free Improvement Method to my fellow coaches at the International Conference on ADHD.  I am doubly honored to be teaching my first official cohort of Chaos Free Family for Coaches in January.  I will be teaching coaches and mental healthcare providers how to use the course to build collaborative relationships in their client’s family systems.

I was recently invited to share my thoughts on the Executive Function of INITIATION with Laurie and Dr. Abbey on their podcast.  I had the time of my life sharing strategies that I have seen work for my clients of any age.  It is about a 30 minutes listen – great for when you are talking a walk or waiting for practice to end.

If you are looking for someone to conduct a full evaluation, Diagnostic Learning Services in Plano can help – child or adult.  Tell them Coach Mary sent you!
