How does a 504 plan for ADD affect college admissions?
My ninth grader was just diagnosed with an possible ADD and psychiatrist recommended 504 plan. She also has depression. She used to have high GPA until 2 months ago.
I heard that selective colleges look less favorably on applicants with 504 plans. Someone told me that the fact that the student is on 504 plan (not the diagnosis itself) will be released by high schools to colleges as a part of student's file. Is this true?
If you work in college admissions and familiar with this issue or have high schoolers on 504 plans please comment from your experience.
Psychiatrist also recommended small dose of Vyvanse. If your children took it was it helpful for them?
