    Good teachers accomodate in one way or another for many students that do no have 504s or IEPs day-in and day-out.

    IDEA precludes a school district from providing special education and related services until a student is eligible for an IEP, but most sds have some type of intervention program. It's not unusual for a school district to want to try interventions before referring a student for IEP evaluation.

    NCLB (No Child Left Behind) may be an avenue for you.
