Hi LAura!

GeekGuyAndy  ( Thu Jul 24 09:01:49 PM EDT 2003
So hwat exactly is a 504?

Jeff Hitchcock   ( Thu Jul 24 09:02:11 PM EDT 2003
Steph, some parents tell me that they have no problems at their school and don't need a 504 plan. How would you respond to that?

Laura B Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98, 13  ( Thu Jul 24 09:02:43 PM EDT 2003
Steph - I have a question. Sam is transitioning from middle school to high school in a few weeks. I took his 'old' 504 at the end of the year, added a point or two dealing with high school stuff, and gave it to the principal last May. The principal looked at it and gave it to the guidance counselor in charge of kids with 504s. They told me they would schedule a meeting during the first couple of weeks of school. I'm assuming my plan from last year is valid until it is replaced by something else? It doesn't specify an 'end date' on it.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:02:56 PM EDT 2003
A 504 os a medical plan or school that outlines what your needs

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:04:22 PM EDT 2003
That's correct Laura. My understanding it follows all the way through a school system but should be reviwed annually to make sure veryone understands their responsibilities

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:04:54 PM EDT 2003
My daughter goes to a school with 9 people with diabetes in it and three with hypoglycemia. Her school seems prepared to handle anything. The nurse keeps juice boxes and peanut butter crackers there, and all the teachers know symptoms of lows. She is allowed to test wherever she wants and go to the nurse whenever, though she doesn't have to go there.

Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 15, dx'd 9/89  ( Thu Jul 24 09:04:57 PM EDT 2003
We've never had a 504, but are going to have one this year so that Marissa isn't penalized during SAT's and such.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:05:31 PM EDT 2003
you're lucky!

Jeff Hitchcock   ( Thu Jul 24 09:05:49 PM EDT 2003
Steph, to Laura's point, do 504 plans need to be revised or updated each year?

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:06:10 PM EDT 2003
My daughter had to take SATs in a room by herself, which she wasn't too happy about.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:06:29 PM EDT 2003
SAT's really have nothing to with the school
You need to contact the ducational testing service to make accomodations during SATs

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:06:36 PM EDT 2003

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:07:03 PM EDT 2003
They should be revfiwed annually

Ellen (FL) Zack 15  ( Thu Jul 24 09:07:31 PM EDT 2003
What should be listed in the 504 with respect to standardized testing?

Second question, should college students also have a 504?

Ellen (FL) Zack 15  ( Thu Jul 24 09:08:31 PM EDT 2003
Here in Florida the students take the FCAT (FLorida Comprehensive Achievement Tests)

Laura B Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98, 13  ( Thu Jul 24 09:08:33 PM EDT 2003
I added a section this year about Sam not being penalized (regarding absences due to diabetes) when being considered for honor societies, awards, scholarships, etc.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:08:57 PM EDT 2003
tests like SATS are administered by outside vendors. School personnel only moderate and must follow the provisions written by the testing service

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:09:15 PM EDT 2003
Great idea Laura

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:09:40 PM EDT 2003
However, absences should be reasonable (and I know they will be with Sam)

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:10:54 PM EDT 2003
For routine tests, if a child who happens to have diabetes has a low, he/she should not be expected to take the test that day. Cognitive function can lag as much 24 hours following a low

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:11:33 PM EDT 2003

Steph, are there any "official" studies or abstracts we can submit to the teachers about the lag time?

Kriss Mom of Paige (almost 10) dxd 12/96  ( Thu Jul 24 09:11:54 PM EDT 2003
Hi All. I put a 504 in place for Paige last year and did specify special considerations during standardized testing.

Laura B Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98, 13  ( Thu Jul 24 09:11:56 PM EDT 2003
I had to chuckle last year at the middle school awards ceremony. They gave an award for 'best attendance.' I wondered if Sam might win one for 'worst attendance!' Every quarter, we received a letter from the principal that we had 'exceeded the limit' for absences. The P is a good guy and we are on good terms - he'd just tell me to rip up the letter. However, if we hadn't had a 504 covering these absences (and stating that Sam couldn't be penalized), and if we had a jerk of a school administrator, it could have been a different story.

Ellen (FL) Zack 15  ( Thu Jul 24 09:11:59 PM EDT 2003
Hi Steph Wink 

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:12:25 PM EDT 2003
What is cognitive function? My daughter has lows almost everyday. Does that mean she is always behind on that?

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:12:45 PM EDT 2003
Absolutely correct Laura

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:14:01 PM EDT 2003
If your daughter has daily lows, the first thing I'd suggest is that you get her insulin adjusted. Cognitive function is the ability to think comepletely clearly

Laura B Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98, 13  ( Thu Jul 24 09:14:19 PM EDT 2003
Before we had a 504 in place (right after Sam was dx'd in 1998), he took the California Achievement Tests. After one of them, he came home and said 'I had no idea what I was doing on the one test this afternoon. I couldn't see to read the questions, so I just filled in the little circles." Oy. His bg was 350. No doubt in my mind that accommodations need to be made for standardized tests.

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:14:34 PM EDT 2003
My daughter isn't on insulin, she has hypoglycemia.

Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 15, dx'd 9/89  ( Thu Jul 24 09:15:14 PM EDT 2003
Laura, I once asked Marissa about vision problems when she's high and she claimed she didn't have any.

Kriss Mom of Paige (almost 10) dxd 12/96  ( Thu Jul 24 09:15:23 PM EDT 2003
Who is supposed to actually write the 504 plan? I wrote my own using the wonderful CWD site, but I also am a teacher and have seen many IEP plans. Is it really the school's responsibility??

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:15:32 PM EDT 2003
They're only minor ones, though.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:15:40 PM EDT 2003
The testing services will make accomodations. If you go to the ETS website you'll find out there what is required to put them in place

Laura B Sam's mom, dx'd 8/98, 13  ( Thu Jul 24 09:16:56 PM EDT 2003
Why is your daughter having lows EVERY day? Isn't this something that you can address? Snacks every day? Glucose right with her for when she starts to feel low? Lows DEFINITELY affect how a person thinks. (I get hypos periodically and they are awful - no way would I be able to take a test or do a report or read a book with a low).

Wendy Mom of Heather, 13, dx 01  ( Thu Jul 24 09:17:01 PM EDT 2003
If I write the 504 using the CWD template, can the school change it? Actually who approves it?

I contact the 504 coordinator and give her a list of my son's needs that need to be met in the 504 plan...then we get together with the 504 coordinator and all of the teachers in one room and the teachers all sign that they will accomodate my son. This works well. It often has to be done 2 weeks into the school year though...

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:18:41 PM EDT 2003

Not making a recommendation here or anything  Grin  BUT... when I have hypos, peanut M&Ms work really well for me. The protein and the sugar are a good combo. Either that or half a peanut butter sandwich and glass of milk. Either of those will do the trick. JUST juice or just something sweet won't work because it brings bg up, then plunges it back down again when my body releases insulin to deal with the sugar surge. Have you tried either of these for her at snack time?

Pauline   ( Thu Jul 24 09:26:34 PM EDT 2003
My son's school refuses to give him a 504 plan. He has a health plan. They say this is just as legally binding as the 504. Their reason for not giving him the 504 is that he "technically" doesn't need any accomodations. I have fought this one and just cant seem to get anywhere with this administration. With a new year coming soon, I want to get off to a good start and get him his 504.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:27:12 PM EDT 2003
The NIH package was drafted for ALL school systems with input from about 12 organizations. While I think the Padre stuff is good as well, the NIH document will have more clout with the public at large.

When Drew started public school in first grade, they let him have IEP status..he stayed on that until 3rd grade when they told me they couldn't justify keeping a straight A student on IEP status. So, we went to 504 and it is just as wonderful.

Jeff, I will do that. Thanks.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:35:32 PM EDT 2003
You want to be careful what you ask to change. Some things like lunch are improtant socially for your child and perhaps the child's diabetes regimen (like his doctor did)needs to be changed instead

Thanks, steph - i know some states have laws re: for example - testing in classrooms/etc - so that might then not have to be included in a 504. Such a law is under consideration in MA

Lori, FYI the pump mnufacturers have sample 504 plans for Pump users

Ellen (FL) Zack 15  ( Thu Jul 24 09:39:42 PM EDT 2003
Being on the pump or a very flexible insulin plan using Lantus/Humalog can eliminate the meal time issues if those are options for your child.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:39:53 PM EDT 2003
you are correct Steve testing IS included in the 504,but may not be in the classroom

Kristy Drew 10 dx @ 3  ( Thu Jul 24 09:39:59 PM EDT 2003
I always put in the 504 plan, that Drew is to test in the classroom, not walk alone on campus, not take graded test when blood sugar is out of range...what other things do I need to consider for my soon to be 5th grader? Eek 

whatname   ( Thu Jul 24 09:40:02 PM EDT 2003
My daughter's school is very accomadating. Blood sugar can be tested anywhere anytime, though sharps need to be thrown out in the container at the nurse's.

Oh field trips reminded me of an issue that I was not happy about. My daughter's class took a field trip, and the place they went to did not allow food, neither was it allowed on the bus. The field trip meant my daughter's lunch was delayed 4 hours, from 11:30 to 2. I had no clue how to handle it. She stayed home that day. What could I have done?

GeekGuyAndy  ( Thu Jul 24 09:43:45 PM EDT 2003
Whatname, can they REFUSE food for a diabetic? I highly doubt they would do that

Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 15, dx'd 9/89  ( Thu Jul 24 09:49:37 PM EDT 2003
Andy, it looks as if you/your parents can write up something about your injection schedule and make it part of the document. I printed out the 12th grade document to use for Marissa, but it includes things that I plan to delete and doesn't include a few things I'd like to include. Just haven't done it yet.

Steph moderator  ( Thu Jul 24 09:50:19 PM EDT 2003

Here's another question. Do any of you mention no extra gym in your 504s? One time my daughter's gym teacher made the class run the whole period and she was vomiting from low blood sugar when she got home (it was last period).

Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 15, dx'd 9/89  ( Thu Jul 24 09:59:30 PM EDT 2003
We will be drafting our first one soon.

It was as a punishment for not following directions she made them run.

Adn the class is typically much lighter, so she doesn't need much before it.

Cyndee you should have a 504 in place BEFORE school starts and amend it when you start the pump
Ask your pump educator if they will also come in to speak to the school nurse & teachers

Thanks for the info - I will look into that.

I am going to ask the pump educator to come talk to the people involved with my daughter at school. There is no full time nurse, just a clinic aid, but she has been great the past two years.
Steph - I may be e-mailing you with questions!
