Section 504 is part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It is an anti-discrimination law that protects people with disabilities. Students might qualify for services under Section 504 if they have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning or working. These services fall under the Regular Education Program.
