Assuming that a student is eligible for a 504 plan (i.e. has a disability AND that disability “substantially limits a major life activity”), that plan needs to be developed with the student’s particular needs in mind. Accommodations are provided based on what a specific student needs in order to have the same access to learning as nondisabled students. Be wary of websites that tell you what a 504 plan should have on it for any student with ADHD, diabetes, etc. A school team should never provide boilerplate plans for all students who have the same disability. Each plan should be developed based on the individual needs of the student.

So, I guess the answer to your question is “I don’t have one”. It all depends on an individual student’s needs.

What accommodations does your child/student need? Here’s a comprehensive page of articles, information, and resources about 504 – so start there.
