Amanda:  A 4-year old child has a medical dx of global developmental delay, but does not qualify for educational services based on his FIE from last year. He is ready for Pre-K, but is not toilet trained. Admin says that his parents can bring him to school but have to come up to diaper him throughout the day. Shouldn’t there be a way to provide accommodations? 504 maybe?

The school’s position violates 504/ADA(Americans with Disabilities Act). Every district should have a 504/ADA coordinator. This person is more likely than campus staff to know the rules. 504/ADA is enforced by the Office of Civil Rights. Your state parent training & information center can assist you. http://www.parentcenterhub.org/find-your-center/
