Sooooooooooooooooooo. Is this about "intent" of a law? I mean, if an condition fits a criteria [i]at a point in time[/i] it is the intent of the law to address [i]that point in time, before that point in time, neither, or both[/i]? I don't know. He!!, I don't even know if "intent" has anything to do with it. Anyone?
I mean, is PA a "disability" only when one is having a reaction? Or is a "disability", by definition at other times? Again, I don't know. Anyone? Does PA "fit" the criteria for ADA at multiple points in time, a specific point in time, continually, or not at all?
Anyone?

How do you think these questions will be answered?
I am not a litigous person by nature, but I think that ultimately the place that these questions will be answered is in our courts of law.
Do you?[/b]
I wouldn't be surprised, but do not know. BTW, it also would surprise me if healthcare professionals were asked to do the impossible. It wouldn't be the first time.

Hi e-mom,
I'm just wondering if any of all this has any bearing (no pun intended) on how you will pursue accommodations with/at your school.
Gail
P.S. MommaBear, I hope my vision of you teaching your cubs did not offend you in any way. It was my genuine and pure compliment of your teaching ability and of your cubs' delight in learning. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I admire it, and wish that I (and my daughters' teachers) had such abilities.

[i]Absolutely Not.[/i] as a matter of fact, I'm thrilled you "get it" (wrt the [b]BIG BOOLEAN THING[/b]) [i]I was beginning to think it was just me.[/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I hope my questions and observations haven't offended you. It is never my intention. Sometimes, [i]I just gotta ask[/i].
I've often thought about your situation. (with school and some [i]concerns[/i] you have mentioned). I can only say, I wish we had had someone had the committment and dedication towards helping keep my cub safe at school, when he was in "school" (outside the home). See, he is [i]completely segregated[/i]. Not a single regular contact his age, or otherwise, outside his family. I will add, our family is the only family with children our children's age in our family. (did I say that right?) Possible consequence of both my husband and I being born to older parents (still, I gotta say I wouldn't have changed a thing).
Actually, I wasn't hoping my cub have gaggles of friends. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Just that [i]one[/i] special friend. (his age) [i]Even I had one[/i] (at times).

I [i]always[/i] feel hugged by MommaBear.... I think she knows that I understand [i]any[/i] interaction with her is a "hug". Her [i]approach[/i] is a hug. It's the [b]The Big Boolean Thing[/b]. That's what I like about her so much. Her arms are like those pieces of yarn used to surround, "hug", and make vens. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I [i]never[/i] worry about offending her.
Truly.
I can appreciate that what Mariah has "sacrificed" is little compared to what your school insisted you sacrifice. We are grateful.
I am committed to working with the school to look at Mariah's needs from every [i]and all[/i] perspectives... Maybe it's a Boolean approach? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
BTW, what we ended up doing rwt sitting on the bus was that the kids were all assigned "partners" and all had to sit in the first available seat. No changing seats period. Mariah's seat was cleaned to meet district guidelines. Achieveable and enforceable in a way that did not come at the expense of her being segregated. It took more effort from the teacher, that we appreciate, and we are all satisfied that this was a [i]reasonable[/i] solution.

This is exactly what the other mom did (the one that I spoke with--her daughter attend our school last year).
The only issue that came up was one day there was a substitute bus driver and he mixed all the kids up. The PA child stated that she wasn't suppose to sit there, etc. etc. and that is what prompted her parents into getting the 504!
BTW, I'm not entirely sure that we will be doing the 504. I do want sit down and discuss an emergency plan but other than that I believe Ethan will be fine.
