What are some examples of conditions that might qualify one for a 504?

Conditions that might qualify a student for a 504 Plan in the United States are varied and can include both physical and mental impairments that substantially limit one or more major life activities. Here are some examples of such conditions:

1. Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
2. Learning Disabilities (such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia)
3. Mental Health Disorders (like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder)
4. Chronic Illnesses (for instance, diabetes, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease)
5. Physical Disabilities (includes mobility impairments, visual impairments, hearing impairments)
6. Temporary Disabilities (due to injuries or surgery recovery)
7. Allergies and Asthma
8. Autism Spectrum Disorder
9. Speech or Language Impairments
10. Medical Conditions requiring intermittent hospitalization or homebound recovery

These conditions, among others not listed here, would need to be documented by a professional and show a substantial limitation in learning or other major life activities to be considered for a 504 Plan accommodation in school settings.
