WS20: Section 504 From Referral to Placement: What School Psychologists Should Know

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 2:30 PM–5:30 PM


Attendees will gain knowledge about the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and apply that knowledge to sample cases. Selected cases that have been litigated will also be presented to help attendees generalize 504 requirements to specific students. Primary instructional strategies will include lecture and discussion. Applied activities will focus on identifying specific needs of students and generating related paperwork (that is, evaluation report, service plan). Samples of forms and formats will be included.
