504 Plan Development


Section 504 Regulation 34 CFT 104.3(j-l) defined:

  • “a person with a disability as any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, OR is regarded as having such impairment.”                    
  • …even if an impairment is episodic or in remission can meet the “disability requirement” if it substantially limits a major life activity when active.
  • Congress stated that the determination whether an impairment substantially limits a major life activity shall be made without regard to ameliorative effects of mitigating measures such as medication, medical supplies, equipment or other devices.
  • Please note: January 2009 Congress clarified that students regarded as having an impairment do not automatically qualify for accommodations/services.
