IEP or 504? A Compare and Contrast of Eligibility and FAPE under the IDEA vs. Section 504
Do you often wonder whether it is time make a referral for assessment under IDEA? Should Section 504 be viewed as a necessary step, prior to making a referral for IDEA assessment? Or conversely, is a Section 504 Plan a necessary “step down” when a student is no longer eligible under the IDEA? How do these laws differ, and how are they similar, with respect to serving students with disabilities?
