Whether you're just starting out on your child's LD journey or you've been at it for years, you know that your child needs extra support from the school in order to succeed.
Most parents are familiar with the IEP (Individualized Education Program), a "road map" tailored to each child receiving special education services. But if your child struggles in school and doesn't qualify for an IEP, there's an alternate route to consider: a Section 504 plan, backed by a civil rights law designed to give all students equal access to the general education curriculum.
Whichever formal plan is supporting your child's education, it should be reviewed and updated annually so it can grow and change with your child's needs.

Should you pursue a 504 plan to help your child succeed in school? To decide, you'll need to know the criteria for 504 plans and the types of students who make the best candidates. Get the facts before you act.
