Meeting with School Today

Hi everyone! Brand new to this forum. I have a 9 year old son that was just formally diagnosed with ADHD, inattentive disorder.

He goes to a private Catholic school and I am meeting with his teacher today to discuss the accommodations that his psychologist recommends. I am not super nervous as they have already been somewhat accommodating over the last 3 years(use of headphones, standing at desk, taking work into the hall, etc.)

but the biggest thing I want to see is LESS busy work. He is very bright and I feel like some of the work is just not needed. They are "check the box" kind of teachers so it will be very interesting to see how they respond.

My question to all of you is how has your school accommodated?

If anyone lives in San Jose I would LOVE to hear how the public schools deal with that as well as there is always the option of moving him if needed.

Mostly I just wanted to say hi and find a support system for how to handle the next 9+ years.....
