IEP vs 504

Hi everyone,

We have a dilemma. Currently my son is in the third grade. He is

doing very well. He is average or above average in every subject. He

is doing exceptionally well in math and reading.

He is receiving speech therapy and O/T under an IEP according to the

IDEIA regulations. The school has just completed his 3 year

evaluations. He scored above the 50th percentile in all areas except

1. Which is no big deal.

So the school wants to drop his special education qualification and

switch him to a 504. They also want to drop his speech therapy and

contiue with a reduced amount of OT. He still has some OT issues.

Of course, we would like to remain under the protection of the IDEIA

regulations as they provide for the establishement of therapy goals,

written notice for meetings and/or changes to his therapy, regular

updates etc. A 504 plan offers none of that.

Any suggestions on how to remain under the IDEIA regulations would be

greatly appreciated as my wife and I can find defensible postion to

justify staying with an IEP given 's progress and achievements.
