New Heights also offers support for families to develop 504 plans for students. A 504 plan is intended for children with disabilities who do not need or qualify for special education but could benefit from accommodations and/or specialized help in school. These plans identify accommodations a child with a disability (physical or academic) needs to fully participate in the classroom and sets up ways to help the child succeed.
