Setting Up 504 For Highschooler- What Am I Leaving Out?
Posted 05 October 2012 - 07:50 AM
So, I intend to have them allow for absences obviously. Unlimited restroom use. (They only get 6 passes for whole year!)
Time to make up homework missed. Tutoring of missed topics if/when it becomes necessary.
That's all I can think of. She is ale to know what is safe to touch obviously, doesn't eat lunch at school and is extremely cautious about wiping down her desk every time she sits at it. She is really sensitive to cc so she takes no chances
Is there anything you think I am missing?

What about tummy meds?
The ability to lie down in the nurses office if needed?

The restroom use - you have it listed as unlimited. Is that for # of times, or does it also include no limits on how quickly she can access it? As I recall, some parents had to include the ability to leave class quickly and without requiring teacher permission for getting to the bathroom. Some celiac kids were made to wait to leave while the teacher finished talking with other students, for example, and the poor things simply couldn't wait that long, you know?
Some classes may have parties, snacks, or other times where a food is introduced into the classroom. Is she okay with gluten around her in that type of environment? If not, you may need to include something about where she can go, or information about bringing her own snacks, where she can store food for this type of thing.
Probably another one is that she should not be given medication or food by anyone but you or your husband, or someone you designate. I could possibly see something small, like a tylenol, being given if she was at the nurse's for a headache, say(maybe? I don't know the protocol for this at all schools). If it were a generic version, something with gluten for example, that could be an issue.
Probably you want something in there about what to do if she reacts at school. Who to contact, if you want to be contacted, or permission to leave school at your discretion if her reactions are sometimes severe. I have met a couple parents who were not called when their child reacted, because it wasn't considered a big enough issue to contact the parents about. The school had the 'it's just a little tummy pain' attitude, and the more frequently it happened, the more they seemed to dismiss it. Like they fell into a pattern of thinking of it as the child trying to avoid school. :-(
