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.

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
