Section 504 Lawyer

Section 504 Plan Children's Disability Advocate In Long Island

Frequently, children with physical or mental impairments do not qualify as disabled under state or federal law. These children may not need special education services; however, they do require some form of accommodation in order to fully benefit from school.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 provides relief for children in such a situation, by mandating that reasonable accommodations be made for children suffering from physical or mental impairments that substantially limit one or more major life activities such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking or learning.

Does Your Child Need 504 Accommodations?

Although New York school districts have a responsibility to find and help children who need 504 accommodations, they often fail to do so for a variety of reasons, including budgetary constraints. Your child's school should be able to direct you to the person responsible for establishing and implementing section 504 plans. However, an experienced disability and education lawyer can help to streamline the process, and ensure that your child fully benefits from his or her education.
