    IEPs over 504s

    IEPs do hold more weight and are used in place of 504s. However, you should have discussed diabetes in your IEP meeting. Call your special education coordinator OR go above their head to the district if you can't get any response and request a "SPECIAL REVIEW" of the IEP. (This is the education terminology).

    Everything with diabetes should be documented on the IEP. At the special review meeting make sure you have a letter of diagnosis from your ENDO and put in everything you need in writing. If your child only has one teacher, they should be present at the meeting. (Government requires ONE regular teacher at IEP meeting). If your child has more than one teacher, you might consider meeting with them as part of a separate parent conference.

    I haven't ever done an IEP for my child, but I am a teacher so I sit in on a lot of IEP meetings.

    everything that you can put in a 504 can go in an IEP but not everything in an IEP can go into a 504..if that makes sense. So if the school is offering an IEP then take it. They will probably also want to do a "health plan" for the diabetes, and that is fine, but make sure that it's documented in your IEP, and that your IEP says something along the lines of "diabetes accommodations as per health plan".
