That was my thought exactly. He strongly believes that a written emergency plan is sufficient.
Is he actually refusing to provide support on this? Maybe you could talk to him about why you want one...e.g. making sure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to protecting your son, everyone knows their respective roles, NOT to impose tons of unnecessary requirements or burdens -- only to get a written plan of what makes common sense to protect your child. E.g. getting classmates to wash hands after eating -- how else could you enforce that if you did not have a 504 plan? I was just thinking that maybe if you expressed your strong desire to have one -- or let him know that you WILL request one -- and that of course you only want what's reasonable for your child, he might agree to support you. But of course, maybe you've tried this already.
Yes, I've tried that. I did explain to him why I felt my son needed to have a 504 Plan and brought papers for him to sign from the school. He did not feel it was necessary to sign them and only signed the Action Plan. My son still does have a 504 Plan and a PF classroom, I just attached the Dr.'s Action Plan with his signature.
Our son, also a patient of his, will probably enter public school in about 2 years and I always assumed we would request a 504 plan (probably including a PN-free classroom). Do you know how the other docs in the practice feel about this? (Mendelson? Factor?)[/b]
I don't know how the other doctors in that practice feel about it. I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable with switching dr.'s in the same group. I e-mailed two Allergy Specialist from Boston's Children's Hospital.

Interesting... I guess we may just have to do a 504 plan without him "on the papers" -- just on the emergency plan, as you have done. Unless I can use my lawyerly powers to convince him that it's better to have everything in writing. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] (I am an attorney.)
I mean, at the very least, there has to be some system in place for dealing with a substitute teacher -- and it just doesn't seem right NOT to have that in writing!
It sounds like at least your school is open and willing to work with you, which is great. Good luck on the doctor search...I'd appreciate your posting what happens with that.

Abers, jodi2boys please contact me or reply if you get my message. Dr. R is hired by my district to plan appropriate accommodations for my pn/tn allergic son who will start middle school next year. Abers, u said you are a lawyer. I would like to know how was your experience with him once your child entered school. Did he support 504, nut free classroom etc. it is very concerning if he does not believe in inhalation reaction.
