Not yet… my kid has food allergies!
Join us for compassionate conversation, as we offer practical strategies and informative resources to help you navigate your food allergic child’s back to school experience. We provide strategies to help you manage and plan for your child’s snack, lunch, class celebrations and field trips. We offer techniques and tools so that you can have effective and thorough communications with your child’s teachers and other support staff about his/her specific food allergy needs. We will empower you with information about important resources such as Emergency Action Plans, the Americans with Disability Act, and effective allergy accommodations (i.e. 504 plans), so you can confidently partner with your school to create a healthy and inclusive experience for your child. Lastly, we highlight ways to facilitate food allergy awareness and sensitivity in your school through networking, advocacy, and community building. Let us help you exhale!
