School IEP’S & 504 Plans

Does your child have an IEP or 504 plan at school? Two of my girls do. The middle school is great with working around my schedule and setting up the meeting date and time. The elementary school is the complete opposite. My daughter’s IEP was done at the end of January 2017, making her next meeting due by the end of January of this year.

She was originally diagnosed with asthma at the age of…
