Special Ed Supports
What you need to know
A 504 plan for diet and/or gym may be required.
An individual with classic MCAD or other FAOD might have an acute metabolic event. This could lead to a brain injury that may have secondary academic consequences.
What you can do
Consider a 504 plan, dietary needs, participation in sports and gym for any child with a FAOD. If a child goes through a metabolic crisis, re-assess the need for a more comprehensive plan for support after the crisis.
