Reply To: Getting the 504

Even if he is denied the 504 plan, ask for accommodations that will allay his fears. Request that he get a couple extra minutes to change classes. Ask for a study hall period where he can get help with his work and maybe get a jump-start on homework. These are reasonable requests. Our kids are intensely stressed at school, far more than most parents and educators realize.
