HI EVERYONE, MY HUSBAND AND I ARE BEGINNING THE PROCESS OF GETTING OUR 4YR OLD SON "PEANUT ALLERGY READY" FOR PUBLIC SCHOOL IN 2001. WE ARE SEEKING OUT ANY PARENTS IN THE SYRACUSE AREA THAT ARE ATTEMPTING TO OR HAVE BEEN THROUGH THE "PROCESS". WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ANY AND ALL EXPERIENCES-GOOD OR BAD. WE ARE ANTICIPATING A TOUGH ROAD......I HOPE I'M WRONG. THANKS

I'm a mom of a 10 year old PA. diagnosed in '98. Get ready the road is tough. The most I can tell you is stick to your guns and maybe someone in your school district will have the same needs it helps. My son is the only PA in our small school district and they try but they have no clue and I'm still learning. Be up front and make sure you know what you need from the school. Usually your pediatrician can help you set up a plan to send to your school. It helps.cheryl

Hi Mary- just wanted to know how it is going. Did you find a school yet for your son? My daughter will be 3 in Aug and I have started looking for a peanut-free preschool. Did your son attend preschool? Would you let me know how that went and which one it was? Thank you Kelly
