504 For Freshman In High School
0

7 posts in this topic

I am a Mom to a 14 year old daughter who has Celiac Disease.  She was diagnosed two years ago along with her little sister as well as myself.  Last year during her 8th grade year, we made a 504 plan.  That plan has carried over to her high school and we have a meeting coming up to address the specifics and make any changes if needed.  I would love to hear from other parents that have 504 plans for their high school aged children, and find out what accommodations you include in your plans.  I simply don't know what I don't know!  Thank you!

Rookie high school Mom!!! :unsure:

I don't have kids in public school, but for high school I think all she would need is an understanding that if she says she needs to use the bathroom, she should be allowed to leave immediately - if she had "D" problems in the past. I'm assuming that she will bring her own lunches? As long as she isn't into cafeteria food, I can't see much of a need for accomodations (I was a high school science teacher).

 

I wish her luck in her freshman year!  :)

Mind that my kids don't have celiac. But anyway, they told me that the only difference between high school and middle school was the classes they took and the amount of homework they got. Nothing was really different from middle school. But, you'll have to go over everything of course with new people. If the old plan worked, I don't see why it wouldn't continue to work.

I guess it would all depend on the school. I won't go into my experiences because...well....they're depressing and they didn't concern food issues at all.

 

I'm kind of wondering this all myself. We're new to Celiac and what it means with school as it's my 1st grader that has it. On top of that, he's in a new school in a new school district. So, I'm kind of relearning all the ropes to begin with.

 

I will be checking with the teacher and the nurse and making sure he has free access to the bathroom when it's needed and making sure no one gives him food that he can't have. We pack lunches anyway as I don't like the food the school serves and he doesn't really either so I don't *think* this will be a big issue.

High school is scary for that first week....then you get used to it. There were a bunch of things that I wasn't fully aware of but they were all upperclassmen things so you have a little bit. :) The graduation part is where I ended up lost....but probably just because I simply wasn't ready for my baby girl to graduate from high school!!!!

Thank you to everyone for their thoughts!  We definitely send lunches from home for both my girls so our 504's don't involve cafeteria's at all.  For my 3rd grader we included frequent hand washing with soap and water after computer lab, PE, music, science lab....pretty much every time she returns to her classroom.  She has Clorox wipes to clean off her desk after any art projects. She has a routine to follow if she experiences anxiety because she has an anxiety disorder.  We included the accommodation of having a water bottle at her desk and instruction that she is not to use the water fountains.  Communication from the teacher to make us aware of any snack or birthday celebration is included along with an extra set of text books for absences.  Basically it's little things and to protect her from frequent or prolonged absences.  For my freshman in high school, I just want to make sure she is protected from absences and has a set framework for make-up work and testing.  I just hope I'm not forgetting anything!  Luckily my freshman is a type A perfectionist so she does really well and now that we are wrapping up the third week of school, she's over the hump in the sense of knowing where to go and what to do and how to manage the homework load.  I just want her to be protected from the attendance rules.  Our school district threatens to take away driving privileges.

Wow! I'm still thankful that the attendance system wasn't computerized when I was in school or it would have been no car for us!  LOL  ;)

Many schools make middle or high school students take home ec or cooking class where they prepare the food & then eat it... Both guys & girls must take semester for two grades of this....We opted to take it the first semester when school began , first period in the morning... that way the room was very clean & they gave a small space away from the wheat flour flour to make gluten-free..... another student was picked to help make the gluten-free food...as they worked in two's.... We were also given the recipes for what the class would be making over the summer to practice. Funny thing is the teacher said I want to be exactly as I wrote them.. WHAT? we just told her celiac no wheat/white flour!!!!! So it took awhile to make her understand we had to alter the recipe to make it gluten-free.. Turns out the gluten-free recipe was as good or even better than the reg. one.... we provided the ingredients for the class for the gluten-free... I didn't trust the teacher to purchase the ingredients to make the recipe work...

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.  
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Today is day 5 and I know it takes much longer to recover, but he is so ill today he has skipped school and is in bed asleep when he is not writing around in pain.   I will interrogate him later - there is a chance he ate something from his friends.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
