Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    During your lunch you are asked by a colleague about Section 504.  This colleague was recently in attendance at a workshop where 504 accommodations were mentioned briefly but no details were given as the subject was not directly related to 504 issues.  You are asked what accommodations for a 504 plan might be.  The question is not directed specifically at a student's issue but just a general wonderment about what may classify as a 504 accommodation. What items could you mention or list that would give your friend examples of possible 504 accommodations?
