Updated book brings new guidance on Section 504 eligibility
In 2016, the ADA Title II regulations were updated, expanding the definition of disability and providing more examples of impairments, major life activities, and bodily functions. Because these revisions cast a wider net over which students would be deemed eligible for Section 504 accommodations, districts now have increased child find responsibilities and must ensure that they are evaluating all students who they suspect may have a disability.
To help districts understand their current responsibilities for identifying Section 504-eligible students, LRP Media Group, a recognized leader in the special education publishing industry, has released Who’s Eligible for Section 504? A Quick-Reference Guide for Proper Placement – Second Edition.
This updated pamphlet helps the reader learn how to:
- Recognize signs that an impairment may make a child eligible under 504.
- Proceed if they suspect that a student has a disability.
- Proceed if a parent informs them that a student has a disability or has received a medical diagnosis.
- Respond when a parent requests a Section 504 evaluation.
- Identify a student with a disability, even if the student’s disability does not have an impact on learning.
This resource is a must-have for the busy educator looking for guidance on how to best comply with the eligibility requirements under Section 504.
