Pete, we use the same form, with a picture, posted in her class and the aftercare classroom. I am not sure if it is school policy, but we do that plan for our family.

The action plan might be with her epipens, because it also has the picture of how to administer the epipen.

I realized that whenever I find out information from him that I don't like...like how a teacher handled something, for instance...he can tell that I get stressed out and sometimes angry. Though my reaction is not directed at him, he feels like it is.
