504 Plan Basics

Cindy Duch, Director of Parent Advising for the Peal Center joined our meeting to discuss 504 Plan Basics. Cindy lives in Allegheny County with her husband Jim and their two sons, Andrew and Alex. In addition to her work at the PEAL Center, Cindy is the current vice-chairperson for the Local Task Force (LTF) for the Rights of Education in Allegheny County, IU 3. Cindy also serves the disability community as a member of the PA Rehabilitation Council and chairperson of its Transition/IDEA Committee. She is a Commissioner on the PA Employment First Oversight Commission. Cindy also serves as a peer monitor assisting the PA Department of Education in monitoring the Special Education Departments of School Districts in Pennsylvania. She has a B.S.B.A. in Economics from Robert Morris College.


Since 2005, the PEAL Center has been committed to serving families and professionals across Pennsylvania. Today PEAL works with families, youth and young adults with disabilities and special health care needs to help them understand their rights and advocate for themselves. Through our unwavering commitment to inclusion and our guiding values, we empower families and individuals to be included in their home schools and access high quality, coordinated physical and behavioral health care. PEAL’s services are provided at no charge to families as they are funded by private donations and federal, state, and private grants.

We have recorded our meeting here for your follow-up viewing and included the PowerPoint as a PDF document. This was a great opportunity to learn more about 504 Plans in general and have some specific questions answered.
