When you ckick on it, go down the page and you'll see Food Allergy Module (draft). Its for school nurses, giving them an outline of accomadation etc that may be necessary for food allergies. Thus is from NY.

That is a helpful link. I like the "FAST" rule. It's good to for everyone to follow.
"Think F.A.S.T.!
Face: Itchiness, redness, swelling of face and tongue
Airway: Trouble breathing, swallowing or talking
Stomach: Pain, vomiting, diarrhea
Total Body: Rash, Itchiness, swelling, paleness, loss of consciousness"
I should refer this to DD's middle school.

What I liked about it is that's its a module [i]especially for school nurses[/i] in NY. Its put forth by the state and this is their guideline, the standard that they should follow.
So when I go to the school nurse about my PA dd entering preK- and she looks up PA and the standard of care/treatment- this is what she's going to find. If she doesn't find it, I can GIVE it to her. Its from her bosses, the ones that set her guidelines. It really excites me! (I'm from NY BTW)

I think it is a great guide...why can't they make all 50 states follow one, I don't get it??? I saved it and will print it out, but I'm in Colorado, so they will probably see New York and turn right around, grrrrr. Thanks for sharing!

chandra- I wonder if this document could be of some help. I got it right off the Colorado Dept of Ed website.
2 points that I found in it that I liked were
#1- anaphylatic allergies meet the disability requirement
#2 "must ensure that disabled persons participate with non-disabled persons to the maximum extent appropriate to the needs of the disabled person in question"
BTW- I noticed on the website that Colorado follows the recommendations of FAAN and AAAAI. (Both organizations are actually referenced at the bottom of the above document) BOTH of those organizations support peanut free tables in the cafeteria. (that is what you want to keep, right?) There are a bunch of documents you can print off their websites that will refer to peanut free tables.
Also, here's the school nurse kit from AAAAI

Thank you - this is excellent! I'm forwarding it to my school nurse, though she probably already has it. It's good for them to know that we're also aware of it, KWIM?
