My almost 12 year old son has dyslexia and dysgraphia. The dysgraphia is honestly the worse problem for him. He's been homeschooled all his life, but now he's in public school (6th grade which is middle school here) so we're navigating the experience of getting him accommodations. He'll likely just have a 504, but they won't decide for sure if he needs an IEP or 504 until he is retested (it's been almost 3 years since he was last tested and they require a new test every three years). I hadn't even heard of a 504 until we moved here. We have our first meeting a week from tomorrow. Luckily, until then, the teachers are really good about interpreting his writing and working with him to help him succeed. We have a fabulous school district here thank goodness.

My son has S.C.A.D and he is currently in a special education preschool at a local elementary Magnet school full time. He has come a long way since birth. He went from having 3 different therapist visit each week (Mon, Weds, and Fri) to going to school and loving his teachers and interacting with other kids.

My son has...ONH in both eyes. He has a tiny field of vision that basically lets him look at the ceiling. They haven't called him legally blind yet since he's so young, but that's what we're prepared for. He goes to an awesome school for the blind and has been doing almost everything as if he was a normal baby.
