Once eligible for Section 504, will my child always be eligible?

Not necessarily.  Eligibility must be re-established at every meeting.  In some situations, children no longer are eligible for Section 504 because an injury or illness has been cured.  In other cases, a student will learn to compensate for difficulties due to an impairment and no londer meet eligibility requirements.  Keeping in mind our goal of serving all students in their least restrictive environment (LRE), this change in eligiblity should be looked at positively.
