Hi Amy - All kids are entitled to what the schools refer to as a Free and Appropriate Public Education under the law. This could mean anything from extended test taking time to receiving home bound school services. The thing to remember is that the school system is not going to advocate for getting the kids what they need. It is up to you to ask for what you think they need and provide the documentation that supports your request. I apologize if I sound cynical, we had to deal with one of the worst systems in the country when we needed a 504 plan for my kid.
Here is a website that we used to get a lot of ideas on what accomodations we asked for and how to ask for them in a way that they would be granted to us. http://www.wrightslaw.com/info/fape.index.htm
Feel free to PM me if you want more ideas, I am not exactly an expert but we have gone through it and I would be glad to help you any way that I can.
