Once eligible for Section 504, will my child always be eligible?

Posted by:

Not necessarily. Eligibility must be reestablished at every meeting. In some situations, children are no longer eligible for Section 504 because an injury or illness has been cured. In other cases, a student will learn to compensate for difficulties due to an impairment and no longer meet eligibility requirements. Keeping in mind our goal of serving all students in their least restrictive environment, this change in eligibility should be looked at positively.
