Hi 3lilhmsmom. When a child moves from one state to another, the new school must determine whether the child qualifies under their requirements, so a new evaluation may be needed. If those eligibility requirements are met, a new IEP is developed. If I'm understanding correctly, the school wants to change your son's eligibility category from SLD to OHI. Keep in mind that eligibility category does not dictate service. IEP goals... Read More should reflect all areas of need as identified through the evaluation process, which can include goals to address ADHD-related issues as well as academic goals and services. In your son's case, academic goals and services should address your son's dyslexia. Would this be the case? Also know that medical disabilities do not always qualify as educational disabilities under the special education law. Hope this is helpful.
