Question: With food allergies and an epi pen, with unknown reactions, when do you do a 504 versus an individual health plan? Almost everyone on here seems to swear by the 504 and some say that's not enough. Im quite confused. I am a teacher and I pay attention to all health notes. I know 504 plans have legal teeth, but what exactly does that mean in terms of reality? I know the only thing we all want to do is keep our kids safe.

Questions: At what grade can you have a 504 plan / IEP? Can you only have one starting in Kindergarten? Does it matter how the school is funded? i.e. are certain 'types' of school covered by Section 504 vs. others?

Question 1: Are parents legally entitled to be at the evaluation meeting for the initial 504? Do they have a right to speak or add input beyond the documentation they provide? Question 2: If the school or school system declares your child NOT eligible for a 504, what appeals rights do you have?

My question: My child is in a secular private school. I do not know if they receive any funding from the US govt. Is is possible to get a 504 plan in this school?

1. Are there any laws regarding inclusion that I can reference when my child's school repeatedly tries to schedule food-centric activities that by their very nature exclude my food allergic child? We have a 504 for her which provides her with a food-free classroom, but there are many cases where several classrooms come together to do these food-centric activities, and this is when the problems arise. Is there a certain part of the ADA I could refer them to? 2. What exactly is 'inclusion'? I...
