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.

    • Two fantastic cities, have loved my time in each. Sadly the hash brownies in Amsterdam are definitely gluten filled and I suppose the cones of chips with mayo are a risk depending on what else they fry in them  so it'll have to be a night in the coffee shops Len   I think Pudim flan should be gluten free, Portuguese caramel pudding.  There are some fantastic Portuguese fish dishes that should be ok. Calde verde soup is another personal favourite. You can sample the Vinho verde of course. Portugal is one of my favourite countries, great people and Lisbon has some great sights to explore.   
    • The only information that seems to be available on gliadinx is from the outfit that sells it.  I'm very leary of these products that people are desperate for and which are highly priced. A product to deal with incidental ingestion of gluten is what we dream of, but supplements aren't regulated enough to avoid for-profit scams.  I was actually disappointed to see this website publish an article a while back that could be interpreted as endorsement of this product..  I'm waiting to see some independent analysis and support from the celiac medical community rather than dump a bunch of money to try it out.  There was another product several years ago making the same claim and it disappeared from the market.   And of course as already discussed, if it is effective, it would only be for incidental ingestion of gluten if taken when the food is being ingested.   But wouldn't that alone be life changing!
    • TexasJen - It sounds like we're in similar situations.  While I make every effort to avoid gluten in restaurants, I don't go nuts about it.  When in doubt, I aim for salads, and try to be careful with the dressings.  I will eat ice cream, but if I can't confirm it's gluten-free, then I stick with the basics (no cookies and cream or brownie bits, and yes, I'm aware that even then it may not be safe).  I'm not sure it's a good thing that I have very little in the way of symptoms, since it doesn't give me much of a warning that I'm doing harm. We're travelling to Amsterdam and then on to Lisbon.  From what I can see there are plenty of great gluten-free options in Amsterdam (bagels, pizza, etc), and I think enough that I won't go hungry in Lisbon, either. Thanks again, everyone, for all the feedback and ideas!
    • As a beer substitute Cider should be fine. You're ok with strongbow which is one of the most readily available. Magners is another option, that's typically in bottles. Kopparberg also ok. Be careful however that there are some products which look like cider but are actually a beer. Either find a mainstream brand you can stomach and stick to it or ask and google. Preferably in advance rather than on a night out when you want to forget all this B*llocks and have a good time  You can also ask or google in advance to see if there's a gluten free beer option. I was in a tiny place a little while ago and was astonished to see gluten-free beers available, turned out the barman was coeliac and made sure he had some in stock for when he was off duty  Coeliac UK insist that distilled liquor is fine and there are super sensitive people here who will back that up, but I'm like you, I didn't want anything from a gluten grain after I went on the diet, physics be damned!  As above, rum is an option. Also wine, you should be ok there also.   Be careful with post mix drinks. I avoid them because the combined nozzles are to my mind a risk, at least if there's anything gluten filled in the other feeds. Oh and be really careful about snacks. Walkers crisps for instance are in every sodding pub in the country but even the ready salted are to be avoided. If you've not yet joined Coeliac UK you should, even for one year to get the guide they produce. It will tell you what the safe brands are and it will be money very well spent. Bottoms up!   
    • As I understood it they help break down gluten in the gut. We were discussing them here very recently I can't find the thread where it was discussed however. I wouldn't use them to actively eat something with gluten, but I think if I were travelling I'd like to pack something like this to try and reduce the chances of cross contamination. Even if they only work on a placebo basis I'll take any edge I can! Anyway Len, I don't want to derail your thread any further, just something I remembered that may be of interest given your devil may care stance Matt
