What is a 504 plan?
If your child does not qualify for an IEP plan, he or she may qualify for a 504 plan. 504 refers to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. It’s a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on a disability. Your child has to be treated just like every other child. There are some major differences between an IEP plan and a 504 plan. So you should consult an education attorney who can better explain those differences.
