I think school plan's are usually a work in progress! They need to be re-vamped and re-thought as situations arise or as situations change. I will be making some changes to my school plan for grade 1 next year. You need to just be honest with the school and tell them you are really not sure how sensitive your child will be and tell them you may have to re-hash the plan if things are not working well. (although as a Canadian, I'm not even sure you can do that with a 504 plan) I think though it is better to err on the side of caution by at first assuming that your child is sensitive rather than having to learn the hard way.
It was quite clear to me that my daughter was sensitive to touch by all of the incidents of touch reactions we had before arriving in kindergarten. I think by the time your child is 5 you have a pretty good idea about how sensitive they are!
Good Luck!
