Accommodations

If you’ve had your child evaluated by a psychologist to determine the nature of his or her learning challenges,  based on the nature of your child’s diagnosis, he may be eligible for a 504 plan or Individualized Education Plan (IEP).  At this point you may be pursuing accommodations, but are unsure how to go about the process.  Perhaps you have yet to pursue an evaluation but are curious about how your child might be supported in school.  Below are excellent articles to better help you understand the difference between a 504 plan and an IEP, as well as possible accommodations to request specific to your child’s needs, and what to do if your request for support has been denied by the school.
