Perhaps he may qualify for an OHI (other health impaired) IEP however you would need the doctor to fill out the forms for this provided by the school and the illness has to affect learning. It may be a hard sell depending on how much this affects his learning.

The presence of a disability or medical condition does very little to inform an IEP team about whether a child is eligible for an IEP. What is important is the impact that the condition has on the student’s functioning. IEPs document a student’s need for special education (specialized instruction). What specialized instruction does your son need as a result of his IBS?
