Do you know someone who has lived with celiac disease for over eighty years? Someone who lived on nothing but mashed bananas for a year? Someone who continued to eat gluten for over 30 years because doctors didn't know how to treat a celiac diagnosis? Someone who experienced serious physical, emotional, and family challenges as a result?
The incidence of celiac disease in the United States is rising. Children with the disease attend public and private schools and educators must ensure them equal educational access and a safe environment. If you are a parent of a child with celiac disease you know the struggles you have faced in trying to make sure your child doesn’t miss out on educational experiences, school lunches, and a safe and bully-free classroom environment.
