Children on home nutritional support often have special medical needs that require attention during the time they would be at school. Or they may miss school for extended periods of time due to illness. Many of these children do not require and are not eligible for special education, but do require some special consideration or accommodations from their school systems due to medical needs. So the
question becomes, how can these children successfully obtain an education but still have their special medical needs met?
There are several tools available to help make this possible. The three major supports are the Individual Health Plan (IHP), the 504 Plan, and the Individualized Education Plan (IEP). For children on home parenteral and/or enteral nutrition (HPEN), one or all of these plans might be useful.

Regarding IEP and IHP one is health and the other is education. I'm not clear exactly what a 504 is.

A 504 Plan is a legally binding agreement between the parent(s) and the school district. It is a part of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).


It's like the individual plan that we have in Ontario.
