A Menu of possible Services
This list is not comprehensive... this is definitely something your health professionals, an advocate, or the school can help with.
In public schools within the United States, these services first require assessments by the district. A parent can request any assessment, but it is a team decision as to whether or not to perform any particular assessment (and the parents are key members of that team). It is important for a parent to keep in mind that the school is required to provide services that allow the child to access their education and the educational environment. They are not required to maximize a child’s benefit from their education. Keeping this in mind could help a parent clarify their position so they can work with a team to get all their child needs while at school.
