In this webinar, Jamison Jessup will explain how a child with ADHD qualifies for Special Education and an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). It is important that students with ADHD be taught strategies to overcome the adverse effects of their disability. It is not enough to simply provide accommodations (i.e. extra time to complete assignments). Children with ADHD sometimes need specialized education which often can be delivered in the regular education classroom with their non-disabled peers.
Jamison Jessup is Executive Director of MyChildWins.com and practices as a non-lawyer qualified representative before Florida’s Division of Administrative Hearings representing students with disabilities, including ADHD, in due process hearings. He also is an IEP Advocate with extensive experience advocating in IEP meetings for students with disabilities, including ADHD, in Florida public schools.
