504 Plan and Accommodations

Earlier during my son's schooling, the school suggested creating a 504 Plan, which enabled my son to receive accommodations, making schoolwork more manageable.

He was allowed to leave the classroom at the onset of a migraine. Rest in the nurse's office. Complete a smaller sample of math problems assigned for homework. Drink and eat when needed and more.

This was created in a public school. As time went on, he still couldn't function in school. He missed school due to migraines and had difficulty keeping up with the work when he was absent or in the nurse's office.

Eventually, we sent him to a private school where he received the individualized attention he needed. He didn't have a 504 Plan, but he was able to succeed in school because he received unconditional support every minute of the day.

Now, he is a self-sufficient high school student who is back in a public school setting. Four years of individualized attention, and he is able to both handle migraines and his school work

Hi I forgot to mention that it's not often I see other mother's who have the same problem. It's good I saw the news segment and that's how I found your blog.

This is very interesting. I'm so glad to see a mom working so hard to make life easier for her son and his migraines. I'm now 49 and have migraines since I was 3. Thankfully, neither of my children inherited this illness from me. I couldn't find anyone to take me seriously or to really believe me and give me any help until I was 43 and I'm now taking a preventive med and I have an abortive med to take.
I'm not completely pain free, but I'm so much better that I'm able to see how normal people must be able to live their lives.
I wish you posted more on your blogs because I'd love to learn how your son is doing through high school.

Hi I am a wife and mother. My husband is 54 years old and has suffered migraines since he was 17. We have 2 daughters that also have them as well. They are 21 and 28 now and theirs are getting worse as time goes on. It is very rarely my husband goes 2 days without one sometimes as often as every 12 hours. He has gone through just about everything we can think of as preventatives with no luck. I wish you and your son the best of luck!

Just found your blog. Very interesting that our stories are similar. I've had migraines since I was a child and my parents didn't know what to do, so just ignored my 'throw up' headaches. I diagnosed myself when I was in college.

Seeing my son go thru it, I figured out in the 2nd grade that's what's going on with him. He's now in the 10th grade.

I absolutely detest how the school handles his illness. He's not allowed to keep an Exdedrin in hhis locker or on his body, even though his doctor insists on it. I've noticed our shoulders and neck get very tense, so I've started massaging him when I notice the irritability coming on or the sleepness nights.

Vitamin B12 shots have helped too.
