I agree.
Have them put thier additonal requests in writing to your dr's and go from there.
They are definatley up to something.
You are doing great..stay stong and keep it up.

I just wanted you to know that I wish you luck. I'm afraid I don't have much in the way of advice. I'm still learning about all this. I must say that I'm glad this website is here though. The support from all of these people is just fantastic.
So good luck and keep us updated!!

I went on the Dept. of Ed. OCR site and didn't see an email for them. Does anyone have an email address for them or do I have to send them a letter in the mail? I'm trying to take this one step at a time and I'm hoping my letter to the 504-C will be enough to have her realize she can't push me into signing the consent.

Hi Gail - The link didn't work, but hblmom (Wendy) emailed the OCR and said she'll post their reply. Thanks for your help!

I have mixed feelings on this. Have you submitted a letter to them from your dr? In a way I feel that should be enough.
If your dr. convinces them to get with it and do what they have to then great. But I think I recall someone else here allowing their dr to talk to the school and they asked him if something like wearing gloves would cut down on contact reactions, the dr said yes, and that is what they wanted the child to do.
I guess I just wouldn't like them discussing my child without me present. It makes me feel like they are trying to weasel it out of him that you are making this up or something.
I don't know if this helps or not but there is just something that makes me a little nervous about it. Just my opinion and hopefully you will get some that are more informative.

I would invite the doctor to your next 504 meeting and discuss it in a group setting with all members. You might need to arrange the next meeting to his schedule providing he is willing. Our doctor was willing although it didn't pan out due to scheduling issues. Be sure to meet with him prior to the meeting to discuss your views.

The allergist did in fact write a letter. I'm hoping that they are just verifying the facts is all. I was told that the district has never done a 504 for food allergies. I had an hour long talk w/the allergist last week and he is very much aware of the situation and knows the school is not cooperating. He said plain and simple that they need to keep Brandon away from peanuts and nuts - period. I think I better most definitely have a chat with him before they call so they don't try to be sneaky.
As far as having the allergist attend the 504 meeting, gosh, I don't know. Is it too much to ask? That's a tough one.
I hope they are not trying to pull any garbage. I just have to remember, the law is on our side.
