The big day

I finally have a date for the meeting to write my daughter's 504 plan. I'm so very nervous. I've obviously never done this before. I've read so many books and internet articles about them since I first learned about their existence last year so I think I have a pretty good idea about what I want included in it, but once again, I feel like the underdog. I've learned that school districts aren't exactly forthcoming with information about how to obtain or write a 504 plan. They don't exactly tell you what is available to your child. You have to be informed and go in and ask for it. I feel like I am preparing for battle, which is not a feeling I enjoy. The next 22 days will be devoted to brushing up on my knowledge. If anyone has personal experience or knows of a good website on the topic, please share.
