Jenna:  I have been told that students on a 504 plan cannot receive any services such as speech and language, OT or paraprofessional (aide). I don’t see any specific language stating that they can be denied these services, is it true or not?

Jenna –

504 plans can most definitively include related services and supports.

Section 504 requires school districts to provide a free appropriate public education to eligible students with disabilities. The Section 504 regulations define appropriate education as “the provision of regular or special education and related aids and services that are designed to meet individual educational needs” of the eligible student (at §104.33).
