I haven't tried their products, but received their bankruptcy email via a forward through my local celiac listserve.  I'm certainly going to order from them now - I feel an obligation to help companies that benefit the celiac community.

My youngest goes to a Kids Morning Out program through our school district (public school) - so she has a 504.  It started when she was 2.5 so they had to think about the needs for a young child.  Maybe you could start that route - write up what you'd put in a 504 for his age and then meet with the staff.


* Same staff member always deals with his food.  Always served first.

* Seated at head of the table to put more space between him and others.

* All kids use place mats and they all learn boundaries to not touch other place mats.

* Food stays at the food tables ONLY and tables/floors are cleaned immediately after eating.


Then think about play-doh, sensory boxes, etc.

My kid goes to Camp Weekaneatit (all gluten-free kids) and looooves it!  One of the first things she worried about with her DX was sleepaway camp.

If you'll be in the hospital it is completely within your rights to request a PICU nurse do the blood draw.  They are used to smaller veins.

Laura - it's straight, but very thick.  She, along with a lot of her friends, brush the outside layer while the inside layer turns into a rat's nest.  I can't believe how difficult it's been to find a decent gluten free option!


I hadn't considered running into Sally, but it's just down the street.


Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!  If anybody has another option let me know. :)
