Norm Goldstein, a Richmond First school board candidate supports ADHD students in BC schools and will ask BC Education Minister Rob Fleming to follow through on his promise to ADHD students in BC to add ADHD as a stand-alone category in special education so ADHD students can get accommodations and IEP’s (Individual Education Programs.) #IEPsForADHD

Thanks Norm Goldstein, I hope other school board Trustees in Richmond will follow your lead and commit to asking BC Education Minister Rob Fleming when he will fulfil his promise to ADHD students add ADHD as a stand-alone category in special education that he made more than 10 months ago (December 4th, 2017).

 

Here are the emails with one of our volunteers.

 

Subject: Re: IEP for ADHD Students

“The non-diagnosis of ADHD and ADD is quite tragic. 

Teachers need to recognize the signs.  Once ADHD/ADD has been diagnosed in a child, an IEP should definitely be an option, to be decided upon in consultation with the parents. 

It is quite possible that once the condition is diagnosed and being addressed, the student may be able to assume a productive and non-disruptive role in the classroom, and an IEP is neither needed nor advisable.

This is an example where some students, those who need help but are not “extreme”, can fall through the cracks.  I would address the ADHD/ADD issue as part of this bigger problem — how to reduce the number of cracks that students can fall through.  This is naturally part of my goal that every student should achieve their full potential.

Norm”

 “I would certainly consider it my duty to remind Mr. Fleming of his promise, and that delay only hurts more children (and families).

and I thank you, too, for advocating for our children.

Best regards,

Norm”

 

If you see any other political parties or independent school board candidates who have any policies on the biggest number of students with special needs, ADHD in their platform, please thank them and send me that information so I can post it online.

Always important to reward good behaviour on ADHD because it is so rare by politicians.

Will you join us in asking your local school board trustee candidates if they’ll ask bcndp education minister Rob Fleming to give BC ADHD students #IEPsForADHD as he promised BC ADHD Students 10 months ago?
