A Heartbreaking Choice: Should My Son Have Accommodations for Lockdown Drills?

So far, I’ve only talked about these questions with my husband. But when Benjamin comes home talking about having a lockdown drill, it makes me realize it’s time to talk to him and his IEP team.
On a broader scale, it makes me realize all parents of kids with learning and attention issues need to be having these conversations with our school districts. Having plans in place to help kids who struggle to follow directions, or who have sensory processing issues or other disabilities, is something all districts should be considering.
As for the fear factor? Perhaps we can find ways to address the anxiety most kids may experience around safety drills. But when it comes to our anxiety as parents, I don’t think there are any easy answers.
