The 504 Plan for Students With Disabilities The Basics of a 504 Plan. The 504 plan refers to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans With 504 Plan vs Individualized Education Plan. There is some confusion regarding the similarities between a 504 plan and an Eligibility.

504 plans are formal plans that schools develop to give kids with disabilities the support they need. That covers any condition that limits daily activities in a major way. These plans prevent discrimination. And they protect the rights of kids with disabilities in school.

504 plans give kids with physical or mental disabilities help they need to stay and learn in a regular classroom setting. The law defines “disability” very broadly. Instead of listing specific. A 504 Plan is one way public elementary and secondary schools can remove barriers so that students with disabilities can participate freely. A 504 plan provides learning accommodations.

It falls under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, a federal civil rights law to prevent discrimination against public school students with disabilities. Section 504 and IDEA guarantee that students with disabilities have access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) that is comparable to the education available to non-disabled students. The definition of a disability is much broader under Section 504 than under IDEA, so more students tend to be eligible for services under Section 504.

In order to qualify for a 504 Plan, a student must have a diagnosis for a physical or emotional disability, or impairment (e.g., ADHD) that restricts one or more major life activities (e.g., attention, class participation). A 504 Accommodation Plan can also provide extended time or small group administration for statewide testing for your child. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law that bans discrimination against people with disabilities. In the school setting, “504 accommodations” refer to simple, inexpensive changes a school must take to allow students with disabilities the chance to.

Free appropriate public education (FAPE): a term used in the elementary and secondary school context; for purposes of Section 504, refers to the provision of regular or special education and related aids and services that are designed to meet individual educational needs of students with disabilities as adequately as the needs of students without disabilities are met and is based upon adherence to procedures that satisfy the Section 504. Both Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) and 504 plans can offer formal help for K–12 students who are struggling in school. They’re similar in some ways but very different in others.

This chart compares them side by side to help you understand the differences.
