Classroom • Allow preferential seating to facilitate close monitoring and focused attention. • Provide copies of teachers’ or peers’ notes to the student. • Provide more opportunity for individualized after-class or after-school follow-up to ensure successful learning. Schoolwork • Design a reasonable plan of assistance to support completion of missing assignments. • Excuse missed, non-essential assignments or exams. • Reduce or modify classroom and homework assignments. • Grant additional time for homework, exams and assignments. • Negotiate timing of large assignments and exams so that due dates do not fall at the same time. Testing • Carefully consider whether any upcoming standardized tests (such as state testing and college entrance exams) should be rescheduled. • Reschedule exams if student is highly symptomatic or coordinate exams to avoid multiple tests in one day. • Allow the student to take tests in a distraction-free environment. 13
