SO, thought we might have one single topic regarding this facet of the 504 & IEP process.

Stumbled on the following website today.  Anyone familiar with this org?

http://www.kidstogether.org/


Haven't explored it thoroughly, but hope it is a valuable resource to us here.

Got Inclusion?
The National Allergy and Anaphylaxis Allergy Council (NAAC) has announced a new initiative called “Got Inclusion.” The focus is on driving policies within schools for parent/teacher and parent/teacher/student organizations.

Do your or your kids with food allergies feel left of activities planned by these organizations? Is food central to the meetings/activities? The NAAC wants to know what your experience has been. Please take the survey if you have a school-aged child with food allergies. Click here to take the survey.

Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

While this is geared to the workplace, it has powerful language and is really wonderful.

It belongs here too!

From the original topic at Hyperboards which is now only available via cached version at Google . . . and will likely be gone *poof* altogether soon:

The words below are mine.
They were written nearly a year ago in response to the question/challenge,
"Who really cares who it came from as long as it's safe"
during a lengthy discussion about NOT sending in (supplying) safe treats:



Quote

Our child DOES.

The other 17 children in his classroom DO.

The TA in my son's class did (negatively).

Some of the other parents of the kids in my son's classroom seem to be bothered too.

(Last year was 2nd grade for my son.)

Some of the other children exhibited clear resentment and jealousy of our son and his perceived "specialness". It really even torqued them that there were "911" drills that the class practiced as a simulated PA reaction situation for my son.

My son was singled out and picked on due to his PA. He was already the "different" kid due to the fact he was new to the community, new to the school, we are military, and he'd been only homeschooled prior so he was WAY ahead of nearly all the other students.

He desperately just wanted to be one of the other kids.

Your experiences (and others') may never have been as ours have been. Very fortunate, if that is the case. But please recognize that MANY of us have children who may really struggle emotionally and behavior-ly (not a word) as a direct result of ther "specialness" or ostracism due to PA.

With the peer pressure that begins ever-earlier, many kids just want to fit it, to participate to the exact same degree that all the other classmates do. In EVERYTHING.

Is that asking TOO much? I don't think so.

We use time outs with young children as a means of punishment and behavior modification. Removing the child from the group is often VERY effective, in this regard. But it is PUNISHMENT. Young children are typically not able to discern the subtle difference between being removed from the group or singled out as a bonafide means of punishment vs. as a safety measure.

The emotional well-being of a child is critical, IMHO, and in the opinion of most child-rearing experts.

Not ranting. Just extremely passionate about raising children who are "whole" emotionally.




I stand by my words today.
