    Requests for suggestions of specific accommodations for 504s are a recurring topic on the forums.

    Checklists for 504s are easily found online. I'm posting links to a few here, as they may help parents provide input to creating a 504 for their child, by choosing items from a checklist as one would choose from a menu of options... and/or by using items from the checklists as examples of wording, while drafting a customized accommodation. This roundup of lists may be especially helpful to parents who do not wish to post too much identifying information about their child, to preserve the child's privacy and anonymity.

    The U.S. Department of Education (USDoE) recaps 504 law, including defining terminology such as "reasonable modifications".

    Understood.org summarizes differences between an IEP and 504.

    Wrightslaw is a great resource for information on IEP/504.

    This is a great list, indigo. I'd add one thing that was very helpful for us when advocating: our state department of education publishes a list of typical classroom and testing accommodations in their SPED policy book, which can be found online at the state's department of education website. When we were advocating, it was *easy* to get agreement for anything that was already on this list; the tough advocacy came when we requested anything that wasn't on this list. We were able to successfully advocate for the accommodations our ds needed, but it was really helpful going in knowing which items were routine for our local schools and which would be not-so-routine - with the not-so-routine requests, it helped to both be prepared in the "why" as well as prepared with suggestions re how to implement the accommodations.
