My fifth-grader has a Section 504 plan for ADHD. A neighboring school district provides "itinerant services" for students who have a Section 504 plan and I just found out my school district provides "itinerant services" only for students with an IEP. Why are there two very different interpretations of what services a district must provide?
This is one for the lawyers. I haven't heard of a school district successfully refusing to honor a student with a legitimate Section 504 plan in place.
You might want to look at attorney Lawrence M.Siegel's book, The Complete IEP Guide: How to Advocate for Your Special Ed Child. Siegel has a section in the back of his book that lists many legal resources as well as the exact wording of Section 504.
