    From what I understand, a 504 is like an IEP for children that only need minimal accommodations, which is what it sounds like you are looking for. Like the others said, having one will be the only way to guarantee that the accommodations (water, bathroom breaks) are made for her. The school can tell you anything they want verbally, but unless it is in writing they do not have to follow through. I'm sorry your DH is having a hard time with it. Would it help him to know that unlike an IEP, there's no federal funding associated with a 504, and a 504 is not special education?

    Here's a good article about what a 504 is and who it's for: http://www.concordspedpac.org/Section504.html
    Section 504 allows for PT services to be included in 504, but I can't find anything that says that they must be included. I am not sure how it is done here. I know they can receive OT and speech without, because I have 2 children who have received (one OT and one ST) without either an IEP or a 504. (My son who receives OT is in Title I reading.)

    This totally doesn't surprise me. There have been a couple of really big issues that I tried to tell DH for months or years, and he was only finally able to "hear it" from someone else. Frustrating, but not uncommon, I think.
