I don't know the situation at the school but you might ask if there are older kids that need service hours and would come & work with him. When M was in first grade, I had an 8th grade boy who came and read with him. They took turns reading. He would have helped him with other homework, but reading was what he really needed. this was arranged by his teacher & we did this at home. Our elemntary is next to the middle school, some middle school kids go over after school to help kids with school work

Having realized I am a horrible person, here is the link to the funny video I was talking about:

If that doesn't work, the video is called 'One Grain More' by Michael Bihovsky

Thank you for sharing that sweet bunnie. I was laughing pretty hard myself and am a HUGE Les Mis fan.

I'm not really a FB user (nor do I tweet). I'm back in the stone ages comfortable with my email & forums.

Love,

Loey

    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.  
    • No, I didn't get a endoscopy or even  a blood test. I got digestive as well as other problems though on a number of occasions after being gluten free and accidentally eating something with gluten.  My symptoms were severe and dramatic so it was obvious to me that I had celaic disease.  I would ask the doctor what the endoscopy test is for and if there is any reason to take it besides confirming the blood tests.  From what I have read a false positive result on a blood test is unlikely but I don't know for sure. 
    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy? 
    • Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen various symptoms return so I thought I'd definitely be diagnosed celiac. The consultant advised me to go gluten free anyway and because I'd good evidence to support that I've not had any problems staying on the diet since then. So it can be done, it just requires a certain mind set, essentially I live my life as if the diagnosis was positive. No exceptions.   I think  this is where people make a mistake, if it's 'just' gluten sensitivity' then they can make exceptions on special occasions etc. I think that makes it harder to live gluten free because you still have to make choices and judgments about whether to eat gluten or not. For me, it's never an option so I don't have the conversation. Everyone around me understands that as well. Only you can decide on this. I don't regret doing it because I learned more about my bodies reactions but I found the challenge unpleasant as my reaction to gluten had become more extreme after removing it from my diet. You won't gain much for yourself, the answer is still the same and you already have enough info to know you should never eat gluten again, but your kids may gain if your positive diagnosis keeps them monitored in later life.  Best of luck!  
    • For me personally a medium result, in that situation,  would be enough to convince me that I had celiac disease.  Probably the standard of care is to also get a biopsy. Going gluten free is difficult so some people want to do all the tests they can so they can make the best choice. Generally more testing is thought of as providing better patient care. I think it is a personal preference thing though.
