  1. Hi All--I meet (again) with my professor after class and he says it is a no-going with my cliac research. He thinks there is not enough there to "learn" from the project. He thinks I could write it without research. Hmm--maybe some of it... Thank you to all who said they'd help! Heather
  2. Ahh--yes-I know the book. I wanted to write my "story" but was slow moving to do so. Thanks! Great advice!!!! Heather
  3. I think they will vary--but I think it will be interesting/helpful to see the factors that contribute. I might find something that can help parents and kids who are having a difficult time! Heather
  4. Thanks for your response! The topic is close to home--obviously. I want to share celiac disease with teachers in the field, and this will do it (my class will know more!). Also, as a parent who is celiac disease and who has celiac disease I go through different problem solving techniques when thinking out being out of the house for long periods (like when a meal will be eaten). To take care of myslef, I don't stress so much. I know I can always eat a baked potato or dry salad (yum, I know--but I won't pass out). With the kids, (mine are young, 4 and 6 w/celiac disease) it consumes my thoughts because they depend on me to take care of it while we are out. And, they are not going to eat a salad or bp!! I also feel, as a parent, one of my main responsibilties is to feed my kids (you know, the basics: food, clothing shelter). Simple! I think about gluten free all the time when they are out of the house. I want to now how much are they really thinking about it. I've been thinking about homeschooling my kids too. I want them to love learning and I want to see if celiac disease is taking fun out of learning because school and gluten-free are not always easy. Thanks for your time, Heather
  5. Hi All- New to the site. I'm a Silly Yak (yahoo member). I'm 36, a celiac (dx 0ct 03) and have 4 kids, two with celiac disease. I'm a teacher who is in grad school and am gathering my own research on celiac disease and school. Q: How does the gluten free diet effect children's feelings about school? (But from the kids perspective--not the parents!!) I'll be posting questions, and looking for kids to keep a "feeling" log during school in the near future--but I'm looking to see if people will be willing to help. I'll take all ages, including college. Has anyone seen research focused on school from the kids perspective? I've been searching and have yet to find a close link. e-celiacs.org has an art on celiac disease in kids--but not hard facts stuff. Thanks in advance for anyone willing to help. When the time comes, a letter from my school advisory board will be included--just saying that I'm for real. Heather
