Setting Up 504 For Highschooler- What Am I Leaving Out?
0

6 posts in this topic

My 13 yo dd is getting a 504 plan due to excessive absences that would otherwise give her a failing grade. (Over 6 is automatic F) she already has missed 5. She is a straight A student. She is homeschooled but is dual enrolled in 9th grade at the high school. Was hoping she could manage half days but it isn't going so hot.

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?

IS she allowed to keep a snack and a waterbottle with her?

What about tummy meds?

The ability to lie down in the nurses office if needed?

What ingredients she needs to avoid should be included. And it should probably be mentioned that she needs to avoid these as something she consumes and in airborne situations. Being able to get alternatives for assignments that might involve these might be something you want to include. There can be some art projects that include flour which could be unsafe for her, paper mache, for example. I believe some tempera paints may be an issue, too. I recall one such thing in an old history class of mine where students were assigned to make certain foods from ancient Rome for a classroom project, as another example.

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. :-(

All the schools i've been through won't give out pain meds without consent from a parent first.

What about art supplies (if she takes art), and home ec. (backing/cooking)?

I would make sure to mention the touching of wheat. Last year in my daughter's science class they were required to use pasta wagon wheels. AFAIK those don't come in gluten-free. They were making a car out of pasta. This year the project involved eating Jolly Ranchers and she can't have sugar on her diet. You'd think the eating and touching of food would go away when they get older, but it does not.

    • pablito, here is the full serum (blood) panel. Make sure your doc runs ALL of the tests on it, not just 1 or 2. Insist!!!!! YOU are in charge. Remember that. Some people test negative on the most common 1 or 2 tests they run so it's always better to have the full panel run. Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG Remember that celiac disease is a genetically inherited disease so it's important for you to find out if you have it and if so, then your kids & all first degree relatives (siblings, parents) need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms but right away if symptoms present. Do not go gluten free after the blood work as if you get positive blood work, you will need an endoscopy which you'll need to continue eating gluten for. The pimple things may or may not be the celiac rash as there are many skin problems associated with celiacs.
    • Hi, I've been experiencing on and off left side abd pain and bloating for about 3-4 years (doctors in the past didn't help much, just said I have IBS). My new doctor did some blood work and found out  my vitamin D was low, CRP was high.  Antigiladin Igg was a weak positive. I had an endoscopy done and the doctor confirmed I don't have Celiac, but she found very small ulcers (took Pepcid for 2 weeks). She also told me I have a leaky gut and non celiac gluten sensitivity. I'm taking probiotics for the leaky gut.  So for the past 3 months I've been eating gluten free and the pain came back 2 times.  The pain is always on the left side of my abdomen. Makes me feel weak, starts with constipation and usually ends with diarrhea. Tylenol helps the pain.  I'm waiting on my food allergy tests results to see if it can be anything other than gluten. So my question is, what does a weak positive Antigiladin IGG mean if a gluten free diet is not helping?  Could the "leaky gut" cause my Antigiladin IGG to rise? Really confused here, just want to start feeling better and not have the pain come back ever again.     Thanks
    • Thank you very much for the reply and advice I assume doctors didn't know or check into this disease too much back in the early 80's or my family doctor would have easily seen these symptoms and discussed this with me then. If I do have this disease it would explain a lot about my health and overall physical discomfort all my life. Pretty sad if it is the case and it could have been prevented but thankful I know about it now. I have made an apt with my doctor so shouldn't be long before I know for sure. Thanks again for your help
    • I continue to do more research but only found 3 journal articles which discuss the reversal of the fold pattern, possibly why I can't find answers I was waiting on on my latest celiac panel to come back so here it is, expecting slight cross contamination from eating out and possible several recent dentist visits. All three tests are based on a normal scale of 0-20 being within range.  DPG IgA - 24.5 DPG IgG – 6.84 tTg IgA – 22
