Intermittent leave through FMLA

My wife works for a company located in Louisville, KY. She has been empolyed there for 26 years. Our son who is 14 and is autistic is in need of after school care. Would she be eligable for intermittent leave of 2 hours per day to care for my son? This would only be in effect through the school year. Would she loose full time status and benefits, primarily vacation time? She uses no health care benefits. She is looking at working 30 hours per week. Due to the company policy, less than 40 hour is considered a part time employee. Can they use here vacation in place of FMLA leave?

She would not lose full-time status, but they can make her use her vacation time first and count that vacation time as part of her 12 weeks of FMLA leave.
