Section 504: How it benefits your Child with ADHD

Section 504

Section 504 ,if your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, you may be wondering what educational options are available to help them succeed. One option that you may not be familiar with is Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. In this blog post, we’ll outline 3 benefits of Section 504 for your child with ADHD.

1. Individualized Education Plan

One of the benefits of Section 504 is that it requires schools to develop an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for each student with a disability. This IEP must be designed to meet the individual needs of your child and can include accommodations such as extended time on tests, preferential seating, and reduced classwork. 

2. Protection from Discrimination

Section 504 also protects children with disabilities from discrimination in school. This means that your child cannot be excluded from participating in school activities or programs solely because of their disability. 

3. Free Appropriate Public Education 

Lastly, it guarantees that all children with disabilities have a right to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE). This means that your child cannot be denied an education simply because they have a disability. If you believe that your child is not receiving the education they are entitled to, you can file a complaint with the Office for Civil Rights. 

that can be a great resource for parents of children with ADHD. If you think your child may benefit from a 504 Plan, we encourage you to reach out to their school to learn more about the process and how to get started.
