I think having epilepsy, Asperger's or a prosthetic eye would all qualify a child for a 504 plan.
Also, it doesn't really matter if Allergist A "believes" in 504 plans for LTFA, it's not up to him! It's the law, and he shouldn't be discouraging parents from defending their children's rights.

thanks again ladies!! I have a friend who's son has a 504 for hearing disabilities. She is floored that I have to jump through so many hoops to get things safer for Jake. She said they come to her with suggestions to make it easier for her child....she said she didn't understand why one disability is accepted and another isn't. Especially when my son's disability could kill him, hers can't. I can't answer her though, it's just what it is, it's sad.
Nicole, I would love any 504 you have to share. I am taking bits and pieces of some I've found already. I just want to really cover everything, leave no stone unturned! Thanks so much for the offer!!!! EDIT...Nicole I actually have a copy of your 504 already, I just found it in a stack of stuff I've copied from here(dated 12/10/06) but I will refer to it deff, thank you for offering!!!
I also agree with Dr A...he REALLY shouldn't be discouraging parents that are coming to him. I read in an old thread that the schools are supposed to make sure kids with disabilities are protected, *they* are supposed to be seaking them out...as it stands the parents have to, which is fine as long as everyone understands they have the option. But then when the Dr disagrees and he never said *no* to me, but he did say *he didn't think this was the best way of handling it*.....that's fine, I guess I know which Dr understands and will back me up, boy was I wrong!!!

chanda,
Sorry to hear you're having so much difficulty.
To respond to your most recent post:
My school has been WONDERFUL with our son's PA - I think I mentioned that before. Gave us a 504, no problem.
Our other son's LD, however... has been nothing but a battle. Children's Hospital has been "highly recommending" an IEP for him for a few years now... We don't have one yet.
Just goes to show how very different things can be from school to school.
As for your original "challenge" questions: I'm in the minority here. We did all the "touch" and "aerosol" reaction tests before our son entered K. We didn't want to ask for more than was absolutely necessary. Still don't. That's just how we do it.
Best of luck to you. I hope it all works out soon. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks Gail, I do remember you posting this actually! How is Mariah doing now?? I mentioned to my son that maybe, down the road, he would be able to sit at the hot lunch table, since all the cold lunch is at another table(with the pb Uncrustables) so he wants to do it now. I'd have to make sure on a few things though(like how they clean both tables, and I do think they get mixed up when they fold them up for the day...so the cold lunch table could be used for hot lunch the next day etc...) but it is something I'd like to work with the school on, as he gets older. Had Mariah had any problems sitting at the other table since her challenge??
Gail, I was going to ask you, would you mind re-posting or re-raisig your letters and 504 and all that again. I think it was yours I was using alot and I'd love to refrence them once again. If you don't mind. I have a hard time doign the search, you have to go in and read so much until you find something. Thanks so much!!!
