Would a diagnosis of Developmental coordination disorder qualify a child for special education services?

To qualify for special education in most states, you need to prove that there is a discrepancy between intelligence and acheivement. In other words, there is usually a processing deficit that hinders learning. Many simple handicaps do not effect processing or the learning process. If this is the case, then a student with a disability would probably qualify for a 504 plan. These plans often allow for accomodations in the classroom and/or materials, tests, etc. They do not allow for modifications to content that the student is given. You can find out more about 504 plans at http://www.chtu.org/504.html.
