IEP vs 504 Plan

IEP vs 504 Plan Students with disabilities requiring only reasonable accommodation must have a written plan under Section 504; this is commonly referred to as a 504 plan. For students with disabilities who require specialized instruction, the IDEA controls the procedural requirements. The IDEA process is more involved than that required under Section 504. Instruction and accommodation under the IDEA are provided in accord with a plan called an Individualized Education Program, known as an IEP. Source: www.slc.sevier.org/iepv504.htm

What is the Difference? The purpose of Section 504 is to protect persons with disabilities against discrimination for reasons related to their disabilities. Unlike IDEA, Section 504 does not guarantee that a child with a disability will receive an individualized educational program that is designed to meet the child's individual educational needs. A child who receives Section 504 protections has fewer rights than the child who receives special education services under the IDEA. The child who receives special education services under the IDEA is automatically protected under Section 504. Source: www.nldline.com/iep_vs_504.htm
