In order to qualify for a Section 504 accommodation plan:
Parents must give consent to an evaluation that is conducted at school. Information for the evaluation must be gathered from multiple sources and may include a review of existing medical records, existing education records, achievement test scores, standardized test scores, and/or existing psycho-educational evaluations, as well as teacher/staff input, parent interview and/or student interview.
It is important to remember that it is not simply a medical diagnosis that determines eligibility for a Section 504 accommodation plan. The data must come from a variety of sources and the impairment must substantially impact a major life activity.
