I remember that thread Carefulmom, and I actually quoted it yesterday in our meeting with the school. I believe the example was - With an IHP if the kids were burning a peanut for a science experiment the PA kid would be sent to another room , but with a 504 the kids would burn sugar cubes. (the curriculum would have to change to allow the PA kid to be involved)
Somehow I managed to spout off lots of good stats and quotes yesterday....lets hope I'll be as on the ball at the eligibility meeting in July!

Hey- we can start our own club!! I have a 504 meeting scheduled for Friday.
I have many of the same issues. Our school's principal said they have procedures in place and have had PA kids in the past and THEY never needed a 504. In fact, it sounds as if they maybe have NEVER written a 504. *gasp*
But I am going to remain optimistic. I know my fact. I've done tons of reading and have copies readily available for the school. And thankfully, I have a friend who is an advocate who is going to accompany dh and I.
We can do this. I can do this.

Mistey, how old is your child? I was thinking of asking for an aide for DS on the bus and/or at recess....Not sure about that yet. But I guess it can't hurt to ask, the worst they can say is no.
Good luck to you at your meeting tomorrow, is it your eligibility meeting?
Let us know how it goes.
Yes - WE CAN (and WILL) DO THIS !!!

Yep, it the eligibility meeting. But I'm sure it will then go into the accomidations portion as well. Hopefully no need to have another meeting.
