My daughter has been included in the special needs group at her high school. As an A and B student she was not very happy about this until she understood more about it. LOL.

Her needs are more in regards to making up for absences and difficulty getting from class to class if she is has a recurrence of numbness. Her teachers post assignments and worksheets on the school intranet site for her to complete at home. She is able to get a key for the elevator if she needs it rather than using the stairs and her PE teacher is very understanding about her levels of fatigue.

Whatever happens with your individual plan the most important thing to remember is to use a collaborative process. Everyone from the student and their family to the teacher and the school cousellor has an important role to play. They are each experts in their field!
