At a minimum, a 504 plan should be in place for ANY child with life-threatening food allergies (anaphylaxis).

The IHCP or IHP (Individual Health Care Plan or Individual Health Plan) should be an ATTACHMENT to the 504.

The 504 is there to provide the necessary accommodations so that your child is FULLY INCLUDED and not discriminated against by virtue of his/her hidden medical disability.

Our school district has a reputation for avoiding and denying 504 plans. Other parents have spent thousands of dollars on attorneys to no avail.

If my child has not yet experienced anaphylaxis since she has never eaten anything with a peanut as a direct ingredient. All of her reactions thus far have been hives, eczema and diarrhea and only as a result of cross contaminated food.

Is it likely my school will go for a 504 plan since my daughter hasn't ever experienced a life threatening reaction? I can see them saying something like, "well, she's never experienced a life threatening reaction before so we don't see a need for a 504 plan."

Great posts! Am in the process of getting 504. Was told that a 504 wouldn't cover life threatening allergies. That was 2 years ago. My allergist was very angry over this. Said it's illegal. I'm glad I am pursuing it.

Can anyone please help me how I can get the 504 for my preschool child? I really need this asap since all the schools I researched are not safe and my child wants to be around children so badly. What site do I go, how much paperwork and time is involved, will they pay for a 1-1 in preschool?
