Dr. Sarah Wheeler, Ph.D. – How to Get an IEP or 504 Plan for Your Child & How Your School Psychologist Can Help

Dr. Sarah Wheeler is most known for her work on helping parents understand their child’s assessments and diagnoses, finding the right interventions, and collaborating with schools.

She has worked with tons of parents on figuring out what the different options are for supporting their child at school, and how to get those supports in place, without spending years fighting with the school.

What impressed me most about Dr. Wheeler, is her diverse knowledge of the effects of ADHD in the classroom, the inner workings of schools, and what school supports and accommodations are most needed for middle-school-aged students.

In this interview, we’re speaking with Dr. Sarah Wheeler to give parents a clear understanding of the differences between an IEP and a 504 plan for middle-school-aged students with ADHD and whether your child may need one, as well as the role of a school psychologist during the middle school years.

While there is a lot of information out there about 504 and IEP plans, it can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming for parents to choose the right plan, ask for it and implement it.

In this interview, Dr. Wheeler will explain in detail what the IEP and 504 plans consist of, highlighting their differences and similarities, and how to assess whether your child needs one or the other, or none. Naturally, she will also instruct us on how to get these plans and how to implement them with the school.

She will also explain what is the essential role of school psychologists in caring for a child with ADHD and how to get access to these professionals.

Dr. Sarah Wheeler, Ph.D., has been a special education teacher, counselor, and school psychologist for over a decade.

She specializes in helping children struggling to learn, socialize, or navigate their emotional world, especially children with learning disabilities, ADHD, and children.

She has worked in public, private, and non-public schools all over the San Francisco Bay Area. She trains teachers in working with children with different needs at the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute and teaches in the School Psychology master’s program at St Mary’s College.
