I'm trying to get a 504 plan for my son at his school, but is school nurse is trying to me that if his allergies don't effect his learning ability that it doesn't apply to him. She is also trying to convince me that my child is the only one with any major food allergies at his school. I don't know how to get her understand. His allergies are severe enough that he can go into anaphylactic shock and has to have his own epi-pen on him at all times. Is there anything else I can do to get the...

Is this is a public school or school that receives public funding? I would try approaching someone else at the school, someone in administration. The nurse may have input on accommodations but is not usually the one who makes the 504 plan decisions, including who does and doesn't qualify. Most public schools/ school districts have a Director of Special Services or Special Education or someone with some other similar title. They typically write the 504 plans and schedule the meetings. You can...

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Hi! 504 eligibility does not require that a medical condition affect learning. That is what IEPs are for. Your school nurse is misunderstanding your request. Have you put your request in writing for a 504 evaluation? That is the most important first step. The nurse is not the gatekeeper on 504 plans. The 504 coordinator for your school district and the principal are the ones that you need to send the written request to. Then the nurse will get involved as part of the 504 evaluation process.

Having just set up a 504 for my child entering kindergarten, it was the principal who set it up along with the nurse. He goes to a public school. A 504 is a plan with modifications to what your child can do,but also other students. For example my child is airborne allergic to peanuts/tree nuts. In the morning we decided instead of going in the all purpose room he will have to wait in the nurses room until he goes to class. The same for the afternoon, instead of his bus room he has to wait in...

Amy, Sorry it took so long to respond, things have been a little crazy. I would love to see Matthews 504 plan if you wouldn't mind. They are not telling me who takes care of this kind of thing at our school. Procedure states that I had to send the request to the Principal first and that he would pass it on the the right person, then they would make the decision based on what they know and his allergy test report that I have giving them. They are telling me that he is the only on at his...

I am in a similar boat with 504. My daughter is in kindergarten and has ingestable peanut allergy (has to eat it to react) we have an agreement with the school as it stands for her allergies but so far those aren't always kept. The principal was asked about a 504 and I was informed those usually only for kids with physical disability because they can affect their ability to learn, My daughters allergies do not affect her ability to learn there for she does not qualify. I don't think this is...

@Ashleesinger13 , that sounds extremely frustrating! KFA actually has an opportunity tonight for you to participate in a Facebook Chat about school accommodations . You can also post this on our online support community as a question and see what other parents have done in similar situations. Also, if you haven't already, you can check out KFA's school planning resource center .

Dear Dr. Sennett, Thank you for advocating on behalf of our children. The lack of understanding and compassion for kids with food allergies plays out in our schools and in other parts of our lives every day. Food brings people together and it can tear people apart. I've been angry, hurt, and disappointed on this journey to protect my daughter. I've also felt loved and supported. Cheers to you, the leaders at AAFA/KFA, our medical providers, fellow parents and families, and kids with food...

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Bustermonkey ·
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

MAM-mom ·
Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.
