Join us online at a webinar to learn about school health care plans that identify the types of responsibilities, training and services required to keep your child's environment safe and how to respond to an emergency, should one arise. This presentation will review how you can advocate for your child's safety in the school setting by becoming familiar with two plans used for food allergic children: Individualized Healthcare Plans (IHCP) and 504 plans. This webinar will include a discussion of the relevant laws and how to work with your child's school cooperatively and proactively to create a comprehensive school health care plan.
Register even if you cannot attend so that you can receive the video and resources after the event.
