I tried to get my sons school to do the 504 and this was the response. Any body tell me if this is true?
Concerning the 504, we will need to make a determination as a team (nurse, teacher, principal, parent, district representative) that E's diabetes is substantially limiting his education. A medical diagnosis does not automatically qualify a student for a 504. I will be happy to contact our pupil services person in charge of 504s and have them get in touch with you. Typically, we would meet as a team to evaluate the situation, make the determination, then write the 504 together if determined appropriate.
