The principal has asked me to speak to our school parents' group on Thursday evening. I have a food allergy FAQ printed up and ready to go, but I'm wondering if you kind folks would give me a little assistance. I want to make sure I haven't forgotten anything crucial. Unfortunately, I no longer have the original document, so I can't repost here. What do you think these parents should know? Most are very receptive, and the principal will be present to answer any policy and procedure questions, so I don't anticipate any difficulties.

Thanks!

Hello! I don't know if you have pictures of your child having a reaction or not. If you do take those along. I made a poster of our sons reactions and beside the picture I wrote what the reaction was from. I then had it laminated. I have used in numerous times to explain the food allergies. The only reason I started taking pics was because the doc thought I was crazy. I kept telling her he was breaking out with hives everywhere. I took pics to prove it to her.
Goog luck with your presentation!

Good idea! I wish I had pictures of his reactions, but he hasn't had many *knock wood* and I never remembered to take pictures when he did. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
