Section 504--The 1973 Law Still Makes a Difference
Dobson, Beth Ann
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v14 p63-65 2013
The process of developing and implementing a 504 plan is different from that of implementing an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). This author has been a teacher of deaf and hard of hearing students under the Special Education Department in Prince William County Schools for 11 years. She had never had a student referred to the team that handles evaluations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973--until Mary. Mary had received special education services for her profound hearing loss under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) until the end of her freshman year, when it was determined that she was no longer eligible. This article discusses Mary's eligibility for services under a 504 plan and how it was implemented to serve in Mary's education.
