Hi,

Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.

Education.com and the National Center for Learning Disabilities partnered to create a Learning Disabilities & RTI special edition with a wealth of information for parents: http://www.education.com/special-edition/learning-disabilities-rti/

The info center includes articles about dyslexia, as well as Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
